So I got friends out there on the Interwebs. Friends who know stuff I don't. Thank the Heavenly Boat Maker!

Last iteration (I hope).



What I failed to recognize is that the cable end hook and the pulley block will rotate upwards and outwards away from the pole as the hull rotates. The cable hook will go almost (if not over) 90 degs outwards and the pulley block will move outwards about 45 degs.

Anybody want a slightly abused set of forms for a TW28?

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Spent most of the day ripping out the remainder of the strongback frame. There was carnage everywhere!



I was just cuttin' and sawin' and hammerin' and unscrewin' and tossin' the stuff out from under the boat!



The hull is now resting comfortably in her rolling frames on the ground!



Web log updated with more details and a video walk around of the boat I did this morning. http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/carn ... -shed.html

Cheers!!!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Three years in the making, awesome!
I built a John Gardener 14' Chamberlain skiff years ago using most of the same methods.
My flipping was nothing to what you are about to accomplish.

Wish I was there but grateful you are sharing.

Cheers!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

That's it. It's rigged to roll over. Trying to put together a crew for Saturday. Other than some housekeeping there's not much else I can do now. It's going over come hell or high water!

Ground anchors are in & straps attached. I couldn't get the one on the right down any further, hit rock.



Couldn't resist the urge and lifted the hull with the winch. It worked perfectly. No moans or groans or cracking. The Gin Pole was rock solid and never flexed at all.



Suspended on the winch. I left it there for 5 mins with no problem.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

This morning was just some housekeeping tasks. Tomorrow I likely won't get anything done, taking the kid to the airport for his next big adventure in Alberta!

Through the wormhole!


Battery for winch getting charged!


Screwed these 2X6's to the bench. If the frame wants to come down on it they'll redirect it to the floor.


Last look. I'll remove the shed doors before the flip so we'll get a better view as it goes over.


I'm scared shitless!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

We've got some bad weather headed this way for tomorrow morning so I'm going to postpone the flip. I would need people outside the shed to handle tag lines etc. and I can't really ask them to do it standing in the rain. Will try again for next weekend. Sorry.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Got a crew together for Saturday morning. Weather is a little iffy with some light rain. I'm going for it anyways.

Here's basically how it'll happen.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Hull flipping day! A little more than 2 hrs and it'll be going over. Guts are in a knot. Shouldn't have had nacho's with jalapenos last night.

GoPro's charged up & ready to go. Sipping my last coffee & waiting for the team to arrive.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Pretty much as planned. A few minor hiccups but the boat is unharmed and everyone is safe. Had plenty of help. More details later on the blog update.
