going back toninght to put it back on trailer been on blocks for 5hrs waiting for botttom coating"dolphinite"to dry. I think I will set herback done with the frame then lifted it up with the eyes to pull the slings. thanks for all the help. My dad never has to worry about lifting his cruiser, he has his own 50ton railway for coming out of the water.

all done now I figure out the results tomorow weather permitting on any changes with the bottom coating. Interested to see speed if any and fuel, at 50mph I burn 20gph. Will see if it changes I am just hopeing for a cleaner bottom with no yellow stuff.

Fun Home just flipped a 21 STV , we took a piece of channel and cut slits in it for the back 2 lifting rings to stick thru the channel. and bolted a eyehook in the center of the channel...chain fall off an a- frame for the back center eye and a regular engine hoist for the front lifting eye...it took some effort to get it past the half way poijnt while flippingn it but it was no biggie

Cool Thanks for all the Info everyone!!!

My father-in-law has a Fork lift and a Bob Cat, that we are going to try and use. Getting it upside down isn't the part I'm worried about. Because If it get's hurt I can fix it! But after I clean, straighten and paint the bottom I don't want to mess anything up!

Steve, I would love to see how you flip a Big Cat! Got any pic.'s?
