Eider: Flipping Her Over

November 17, 2011; 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, day 20. Today, I built a couple of 1×6 cradles around the boat connecting one to the forward bulkhead and the other to the mid cockpit bulkhead. These were made using scrap plywood and lumber. After these were built and attached, I turned her over using 4 one ton chain drive blocks.

Tomorrow I will level her to her waterline and then begin taping her inside seams with pieces of 6″ fiberglass cloth.
