P19 rolled in Austin

Post by ericsil » Sun Sep 02, 2007 9:35 pm

I got back to work after a three month break and finally got the paint on my P19 hull. With the help of a few friends and a well-placed tree limb we were able to roll it in the driveway. Naturally it started to rain the minute we left the cover, but otherwise things went as planned. It is now back in the garage on a cradle that will hold it until finished. I have just enough head room to build the cabin before I need to put it outside on a trailer.

Looks good! I really like the pilot and wish I had an excuse to build it.
Keep the pics coming.

thanks!

As others have said before, it is tough to get good pictures of the entire boat while it is in the workshop. However, I will start adding to the gallery as components go back into the hull.

Austin? Wow that's cool, I'm right over in Blanco. I would of come helped with the flip. Wish I could see better how you rigged that external rollover frame. Did you put in temporary screws or just wedge it tight? Nice paint work, I like the green.

I wanted to build the cradle while the boat was still upside down to make sure that it really fit the hull and didn't add any stresses. I then used 2 x 4s to wrap around the hull at bulkheads C, D and F, bracing them tightly against the splash guard at the lower chine and the rubrail. The cross pieces then hooked to the bulkheads that were still in the hull. If I had a lot of studly friends like Cpietras had for his OB17 I might have done something simpler, but it was nice to be able to just grab the middle brace with a chain hoist and let the mechanicals do the heavy lifting. I am leaving the cross pieces on until I get the bulkheads glued back in to keep everything nice and solid. After that I'll finish everything on the cradle.

Maybe we can take a ride on Travis when I get it to float.

That'd be good (Travis). Maybe I can return the favor with Nina, though I'll never finish as soon as you. I'm gonna need some "studly" friends come next flip time for Nina, since she's getting heaver with the frames/stringers going in. Or, there's a cowboy living next door that, if he's not busy trying to break his neck in some rodeo, could probably just drop over and flip her by himself. :) I figure I need at least ten guys, 'less I got a cowboy.

I have managed to make a little progress and get the stringers glued down. It's starting to feel like this thing is going to float yet. The hull is a stiff as a brick even with lots more bracing to go.

I am still having trouble getting my pictures to show on the forum pages after I put them in the gallery. Can anybody see what I did wrong by looking at my last message.

As for Jody, your P21 has been a really useful gallery for me to view due to the similarities between the designs.

It's hard to tell what is wrong with the image link.
