Need help flipping off my X-K

Post by Bad Ass Boat » Tue Apr 05, 2011 11:02 pm

I really need to pull my head out guys and get started on my X-K when you have no freinds and there is no boat restoration shops for at least 400 miles and you out in the boonies you feel totally isolated. The engine is done its been done for two years and sitting on the shop floor with a tarp over it. But how can I flip this boat over when I dont have any help? I plan on taking lots of pics and strip everything out and bag and tag everything. I am totaly dumb on this stuff. Give me a drive and fuel systems and engines and I a m good to go. But this boat is so freekin rare I dont want to screw it up. I do have a freind with a boom on a service truck. Help make it simple for me. Thanks Roger :roll:

Try using "Search" at the top. "Turning over" and "Hull Construction" will lead you to a great post with pictures of the wheelbarrow wheel method. I turned my light mahogany boat alone with a similar rig.

I believe this was the thread to which John was referring:

Also promoting "Search"

Its like looking stuff up in dictionary, you wander off into adjacent results and just keep right on learning.
