rolling over an RL24 to paint
Our much loved 24 is in need of a coat of paint on her hull. How can I roll her over without doing any harm? I have a large level grass area to work on!

Rolling over an RL24
I have rolled over my RL24 numerous times on the grass to remove or refit the keel. I have used an old matress and a couple of spare tyres, both successfully. I have just tied a rope around the mast at the hounds and pulled it over with a Turfor winch attached to the base of a tree with no ill effects. It may be risky doing this if you have not strengthened the chain plate attachment points as the original U bolts through the deck are prone to pulling out, especially with a skiff rig.
