Great to see you're back at it Eric! :D


Completed R13 two part nesting rowboat. ST 21 under construction .... where seeking perfection is recognized as the enemy of the good.

I predict the flip will be a lot less of a deal than you thought, but if that beauty gets a scratch in it we'll all feel the pain! No pressure.

I'm looking forward to the next phase of your build, but take your time and enjoy it.

Going to pick up some lumber tomorrow. Might even get some wood work done.
Fingers crossed.
Hmm? Could be a reason to look at sanding stuff and sanding stuff accessories? :lol:

Hope the flip is good.

I bought 7- 2 x 4 x 8' , 6- 5/4 x 6 x 12' and a couple of 7- 2 x 4 x 12'.
I'm going to build support on the boat for after the flip. Then remove it with forklift to keep the hull light for the flip.
I'm gonna have to wait until Tuesday, I'd promised nephew we'd go do something this afternoon.
Monday is out, I'm wrapping up a machine shop job then.

Hi everyone, I'm installing battens this morning. Man that concrete floor is cold!! :lol:
The plan is to temporarily glue the frames in place for the flip.

Jacques can you give me an idea of the location of CG as shown? I'd like to measure and mark this with some tape for the lift and flip. :)

Good to see you back at the boat!
I know it is hard to believe but when you flip it a "hold my beer" deal will work. These things are a lot tougher than we think at this point.
And if it breaks while flipping remember, very important, it is ALL Jaysen's fault :lol:

Weren't you paying attention when he was building? This boat is more like Chuck Norris... the boat won't break... everything else will be broken by the boat!
