Turning an RL24 over for hull repairs & painting
These photos are turning from upside down to the right way up. Going the other way was pretty much the opposite. I have used a block and tackle on the winching eye to support the bow and plenty of man power to do the rotation. Rolls of carpet underlay were used to roll the hull onto. I made a trolley that fitted in the cockpit and supported the boat by resting on the cockpit seats around the traveller area. another trolley was made and used across the front deck under the bulkhead.

Never let the cabin top touch the ground.

This is a pic that should have appeared earlier in this sequence. Repairs needed, due to the hard life that this boat had endured with previous owners. Fibreglass can easily be fixed.
