Hi Curt: I have turned over several hulls using very simple methods; but I have a couple Kum-Alongs, slings left over from moving a grand piano , and my 46 ' hulls are inside a shop with overhead joists (2x8s) and wood pillars/ pilings to either side of the two bays where the hulls are located, and a concrete floor. How would I use your method? Dennis
Hi Dennis- I use a total of 4 cargo slings w/ ratchets to support the hull at 2 locations. One end goes thru my shop wall and has a plate to anchor it. The other end is attached to 4x 10 posts- these posts fit to the sloped rafters so that any force pulls them against the slope.Having 2 each means i can lower or raise the hull [just shift to different sling as the ratchet gets full of strap] I use webbing nooses [cinch style?] to circle the hull and the come a longs pull on these to rotate it. If i was starting from scratch i would get come a longs to replace the cargo slings ratchets, but 2 slings is a bit of safety factor. Takes about 15 minutes to do a 180 degree rotation by myself. Hope his helps- and good luck!
Hi Curt; Thanks for the description:Might you have any photos of the sequence handy to show me? Thanks .Dennis in Naples, Florida
