    got my hull flipped over



    did it with just me and my dad.. we have it flipped over on my dolly

    we got it off the dolly onto these big pads. Then we flipped the hull completely over and he got on one side and i got on the other and we picked it up grabbing under where the footwells are, and with one one each side carried it over to the dolly and set it down!

    some people posted about it taking 5 full grown men.. it can be done with 2..

    gonna order some marine tex tonight, then next fri-sun I will true the hull and hopefully finish it.. if I don't finish it in those 3 days I Will continue onto next fri-sun I am going to do it properly, and the correct way.

    After trueing ski will be off to pai

    make sure you wear gloves when you work with Marine Tex, its very toxic.

    I have one that's been upside down for months, I'm repairing a bunch of damage to it.

    I made a dolly of sorts that would fit in the footwells, then used a winch to pick it up by the nose tiedown. We got it vertical, then kept pushing it and slid the stand under it.

    I would think an empty gpr is about 300 lbs or less... seems like a couple guys should be able to do it...

    pics

    i can see if someone started early and did this.. but this is DEF. not a 1-2 hour job somebody that did.. did not do it correctly..

    my arms feel a little burn, I applaud greatly to the people that get under the ski and do this. Example being Leo. I think after 1 under the ski I would never do it again..

    pics..

    this is the first layer down with 120 grit.

    I have this thing called piece project during the entire day of school on Wednesday meaning I DONT have to finish my Homework tomorrow.. so I will work on it all night tomorrow, and do my HW late..

    Although not done, just wanted to say thanks to Leo and Kevin (woody) for taking time to help me out with doing this.
