    Hull is separated!




    Missing sections of kevlar/fiberglass that are extremly rotted, Kind of almost looks like it was where it flexed in the middle of the boat and just flaked



    First sign of rotted STRINGERS is dark nasty smelly brown water!

    I just used our fork lift rated at 2500 lbs and cut some 2x4's for reinforcments of the gun whales and it worked like a CHARM! After we sat it down and unhooked it we just have 4 people carry it over to the side of the shop and sat it down and I just braced it so nothing sags! This was EASY and CHEAP method of removing the top with out any issues,

    Now that the top is off its GAME ON! More pics to come as the progress continues

    Progress! I love it! We have almost identical twin boats - maybe we'll get together sometime out at Tygart when both of our boats are finished!

    I like the way you took off the top cap. I'm jealous you did it so easy. Do you have any pics of how you stored it and supported it?
