We're arranging the Flip Party in a couple of weeks (COVID Challenged), and I still have to bunk the trailer between now and then.

I would be almost done if not for the weather delays! Basically I had to take several weeks in October and November off from the build...

I am already sourcing the parts, greatly anticipating the day where I can see the inside of the boat! :D :D

Pretty nice setup. You'll probably find after you set the boat on it that you'll want some support up under the bow, a single roller works well to help support the bow right about where your tongue beam T's into the front cross beam.

I cobbled this together, worked well though.

That looks great Steve! Big day! And it looks like you got the neighbors together to help too. What a fun milestone :)
That bottom paint looks better and better in every picture you post!
Just wait until you fair the top of the side planking and then you can really see the lines of the boat!

Rough fairing for the sides. I used a trim router and a flush trim bit. Today is in the 40s so I’m planning to epoxy encapsulate the inside!
