    he's got the hoist and chain supporting the bow it appears, and the transom supported by the saw horses.

    can't wait to hear how you make out with this, you beat me to it!

    you going to follow yamaha technique? Mist the bottom with white spray paint and start sanding with a long block of wood so u can see where the low and high spots are?

    Yep, chain fall on the front and saw horses in the back.

    Going to mist it with white paint just like you mentioned shibby.

    It was easier than you think. I just raised the front end up with the chain fall hoist and then 3 of us lifted the back end, someone pulled the trailer out from underneath then we flipped it over and then slid the horses under the back end.

    I always wondered what would happen if you coated the painted surfaces that touch the water with teflon. I wonder if it would get rid of some of the resistance of the water.

    if it were possible to coat with teflon it might go faster but it would never turn. It will be obvious where the low spots are when you start block sanding the gel coat, no need to spray white paint on it unless you have really bad eyesight. When you think your finished it might help you to check your work to spray some light gray primer on to make the low spots stand out again when you do the final sanding.
