First off I jacked up the hull untill it reached the balance point.

Then I lowered it with a rope to the floor.

Once on the floor, I lifted it up with the engine crane on to the saddles that I made earlier

It was real good to see it the right way up.

Wow Andy, she's beautiful! I love that part of building: seeing her right-side-up for the first time. Fantastic!

Well done, she looks very nice. I love the gloss on that bottom paint, what did you use?

What a milestone. But all those wenches and pullys all take the fun out of it,right Art? Now the real work begins.

P.S.
A footnote, I see all of the locations in the posts are gone.

Beautiful job H. What sort of motor sport are you involved in ... and what sort of motor is the boat getting ? Love your wheel jig.

CONGRATULATIONS! I know that's a GREAT feeling... But you missed out on a wonderful opportunity to invite all your friends over to do it the "Egyptian" way and let 'em all see you as nervous as a dog delivering puppies while they man-handled it over for you! ;)

(Clever looking craft, btw...)

Art's was before mine. That is why the comment to him was included in the post.

Perhaps the magnetic poles have already started to reverse? ;)

(Or perhaps I just have a bad habit of doing a quick "delete/repost" when I have a change of mind...)

Does that mean us Aussies 'Down Under' will get to be 'On Top' for a change? ;)

Hey thanks for the kind remarks.
The bottom paint was interlux 2000, topped of with interthane plus, as she will not stay in the water.
Sports cars is my line of work John (American LeMans series)Not a bad way to earn a living, but it dose mean the boat building goes in fits and starts.

The boat looks absolutely awesome. you could just put it in the living room as it is in place of the TV and just stare at it.

I also make my living in motorsports so the last pic was nice too!

"...I’m still looking for a good supplier for an original looking rudder, any ideas?"

Actually, I think I might have something kicking around... I believe it's from an old Cris Craft. Even got the stuffing box. (No quadrant, unfortunately) All bronze with a stainless(?) shaft. Just sitting on my shelf with a bunch of other hardware I've collected for my own project but never used. (I bought it 'cause I thought I might be able to make use of the stuffing box.. But RGM solved that problem much more elegantly...) E-mail me if it looks right for your boat.

What a shop I'm thinking, even better than Pete's barn for crying out loud. Then I see Dick Barbour Racing, LOL.

Beautiful. Art's comments re "let'em all see you as nervous as a dog delivering puppies while they man-handled it", boy ain't that the truth.

Nice work.

Speaking of shop, is that the paddock at Road Atlanta? What a great venue.

Great looking boat you got there.

Some people just get their life sorted out don't they.

So I want to be Wayne AND H now.

Yes, that is the paddock at Road Atlanta in the back ground, I get to work on the boat and watch racing at the same time, every now and then someone will even spin off for added entertainment.
Art, looks maybe a little small in the picture, but Iím not sure how this would affect the boat, I will Email the size from the drawing to you tomorrow and we will go from there.
Regards to all "H"

H, you might know one of my brother's buddies: English chap named Graham but is commonly known as Snake. Used to work on the Hesketh F1 cars way way back when...

Good job, BTW.

Hi john, I think that you asked the same Question way back when I started the boat, only I had not met him back then. I met him this year, good guy, whats your brothers name Ill mention him to Snake.
Regards "H"

My bro is Dan, same last name as me. I'll probably see Snake on Christmas myself.

Small world, eh?

Best,
