Flipped the 22ft sharpie today, just my daughter and I, two trees, a come-along, and two climbing ropes. figured it was a good day cause it was 60 degrees and we still had 20 inches of snow in the back yard to buff the fall if I screwed up.

Its looking like a real boat now that its right side up! |:)

Yeah, I can't wait to turn Katie-K-II over and see what she really looks like. I'm really getting antsy, to the point that I'm not working "in the moment". I want to push ahead, but I've got to finish a few loose ends and back up and wait. The warm weather the past few days only made it worse cause I had to work real job instead of working on the boat.

Congratulations, I love that moment. Boatbuilding is magic. I also love finishing the planking, that's when she stops being a boat like thing and becomes a boat.

thanks for the sopport!
It feels pretty good to get her rightsided, thats for sure, it was a lot bigger project than I antisipated initially.
I will post some pictures as soon as I can

Thanks again
