Yesterday was a great day! The original plan was to flip the boat this coming weekend but I finished up all the prep work earlier than expected and decided I couldn’t wait. Several of my neighbors were out doing yard work and given the option decided it would be more fun to help me flip the boat and drink my beer. After a little strategizing the boat came off and was turned without a hitch. We set it out in the yard on some padding while I modified the building frame. It took about an hour or so to tear down the molds and install the new supports. The boat went up on the supports and I’ve had a big grin on my face ever since. Here are a few shots of the results…

What a beauty !!! Now that it is turned, take a few minutes and clean up that messy boatshop. I can't wait to see how nice the rest of your Fulmar looks. Jim

No glitch... just a reflection in the high gloss paint.

Looks great. Terrific job lining off the strakes.

What did you paint it with?

Credit goes to Iain Oughtred for the pretty lines.

"Credit goes to Iain Oughtred for the pretty lines."

I"ll go along with that, but you also get the credit for transforming those pretty lines on paper into a tangible, very beautiful boat. Congradulations on the turnover.

You've got way too much space in that garage.

Awesome! Hey you can't see any epoxy drips on my garage floor either; the paint slops hide mine real well. ;)

What a great looking boat it is.

Looks really nice. :)Can't wait to see pictures of it sailing away!

I don't see any interior pictures. Is that because that is where you have stashed all your shop debris for the photo?:D

...but it is the only facet of my life where I have some semblance of control. Everywhere else I just try to keep up.

Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement.

Steve L... check your PM and thanks!
