Flipped a Boat Today!
 
My Dad has been building a stitch and glue boat for the past 2 1/2 years. He's finally to the point that it is ready to be flipped. Pretty exciting time! Here are the pics... Next up, the topside and probably another 2 years - hopefully shorter, we'll see... It's a B&B Design called the Belhaven 19. B

CONGRATULATIONS!! Well Done!!

For those unfamiliar, "flipping the boat" is a major milestone during construction -- a big moment. I still remember the day we flipped our dinghy (except in our case we flipped it from "right-side-up" to "up-side-down", but no matter.) We slid it down a lumber ramp and out of the garage, flipped it, then lifted it back in. A big day.

Thanks John, i'll tell him! We are all pretty stoked! Yah, it's been flipped twice now. :D Really the hardest part was folding and holding the sides in place. 19' of 1/4" plywood doesn't stay where you want it to sometimes... :laugher

That's great! I've built a couple of small boats. Launch day will be one of the best of your life.

LandLocked, congratulations to your father, great looking hull!


And John, I could just sit and look at that Passagemaker all day long, it is beautiful, a boat to be proud of. :)
