Everything looks great Lee..... I'm sure the flip will be a "non event". Your "roll cage" looks like it was designed by an engineer !! Best of luck today.

The boat is right side up! The flip went off without a hitch :) We had to slide it in the garage before the flip and then once it was sideways (i.e. half way over), we had to slide it a few feet so there was enough room to roll it the rest of the way. It was a little scary :shock: but the roll cage help up well...whew!

Here are some pictures. I also posted a video on my youtube channel (search for "Boat Builder Lee" on youtube and look at the Glen-L Monaco build playlist). Here is a direct link to the flip video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt1gVzR ... A&index=60

Way to go Lee.... That is without a doubt the best video I have seen showing the right way to flip a boat. 20% down, 80 to go...

Thank you everyone.

Steve, It was a little intense but having a big group helped for sure.

Neel, I hope I am more than 20% of the way :)

Ken, We didn't have that but my wife did make cookies :)

Roberta, I find myself staring at it and saying "now what?". I guess I will figure it out soon :)

Bill, That is true. It is surprising how fast it actually goes.

By the way, after I removed the roll cage, I did get in it an make motor noises :) :)
