This weekend the main hull had to be taken out of the workshop. Although I already have some experience hoisting hulls (the floats) I still was very nervous.....
Above a very tired & stressed owner/builder (me, that is) apparently thinking smoking a lot of cigarettes will prevent the boat from falling down.
It was a very tight fit and I needed to built a roller to stick the boat out of the workshop as far as possible while keeping it level (only 5 cm play on the topside because of the overhanging roof).
When hoist-day came nearer I had to do all kind of small stuff to the trailer, the workshop and the boat and I had to rush and work till late at night to get it all sorted. That's why I didn't find time to clean the boat before hoisting. In hindsight a pity as this was the perfect 'photo opportunity'.
Above the boat is almost down.....without the floats it looks a bit ehmmm ....well... funny, if you ask me.
