Rollover Part 2: Halfway over

1) Rollover frame and towing straps.

2) Winch belayed to fence post.

3) Taking up the strain. The far side of the hull begins to rise.

4) Blocking under the frame as the side rises.

5) Jacking against the sheer clamp.

6) And over . . . with a crash.

This is where things began to deviate from the original plan. As you can see, part of the rollover frame failed at a joint that I never expected to have to take the weight of the boat. No damage was done to the bottom, and only minor scraping to the sides-which haven't been finished anyway. I had anticipated something like this, though would rather not have had to deal with the crashing sound-and the neighbors poking their heads out to see if the crazy man living next door was still alive. Part of roll over plan kept people out of the landing zone, just in case things got away from us.
