Early spring hull repair preperation

In late March through early April I gathered the things needed to flip the Batboat upside down.

I have to repair and paint the bottom of the hull and removethe topside. More on this later.

There isn't much to show but for those interested, this stuff will make a two man, 600+ pound boat flip easier.

I asked people for auto tires and nearby Charter Cable gave me wood pallets.

All of this junk normally belongs in a dump but actually will let me turn the boat upside down without much damage.

These pallets were intended as supports but the idea ultimately didn't work.

Thirteen tires so far. It would take eight or nine more to safely flip the boat.
