Roll-over day!

After much planning, the day had come for my first antique boat roll-over. I've made lift frames, made my own "Dannenberg light" rollers, brazed the hull and was ready to go. And it went as smooth as can be. With help from my neighbor, it was done in 1 1/2 hour, including setup of frames and rigging.

1/3 of the way around. I could have tighten the 4" straps a little, but just enough clearance.

Everything held up just fine. and ready to roll back into the shop for bottom removal and straightening.
