    Well, the roll over went well - performed with the aid of a come along winch and a car jack. She's now back in her shed and the right way up. I'm working on the combings and coachroof sides now :-)

    Thank you David :-)

    Good luck with your build. It doesn't seem long ago that I was at that stage of having a pile of bulkheads and was thinking through how to go about setting it all up. The boat will take shape quickly from there!

    Hi Tony, great blog site. You are doing very well with your build. I am envious of your building shed. I have just recently begun construction of my new boat, a small cruising catamaran. At present I have a pile of completed bulkheads and two completed rudder blades. I am about to start setting the bulkheads up on the building frames so will soon have something which vaguely resembles a boat-like sculpture. But it is encouraging to follow the progress of other builders such as yourself and Annie Hill.

    You will find a lot of useful information and help here at the JRA when it comes to developing your rig.

    I thought I'd start a new thread about this in this forum after earlier erroneously posting something in the general forum (sorry!)

    My build is progressing and the basic hull is now complete and sheathed. This weekend will be the big roll over - pulling her out of the shed, rolling her over to be the right way up and then pulling her back into the shed. Exciting times and I might be a bit nervous about this procedure!

    I'm blogging the build here;
