The weather seems to be warming here in north east Michigan and I am just sitting here thinking and dreading about flipping the Batboat upside-down so I can repair, sand and repaint the bottom.
Was just outside and found I can lift it off the trailer by hand from the bow and sides but not from the center of the stern. Two people can handle the job. Starting next trash day I am searching the city for old auto tires to stand the boat on.
This pretty much shows what I have to look forward to, however, my fiberglass hull is more flexible and fragile than their wood craft.
