    Morning all

    What a week end ! Loosend boat from building stocks and is ready to go on her back . Must say I was very weary of doing this as was not sure if she would stay as one unit but fears were for nothing she came loose and is one strong unit rather impressive I thought . Will post pics soon and am hoping to turn next weekend.
    Cheers

    hi colfar2!

    congratulation on your work there!

    i am playing with the idea off building a k800 myself, if money and time permits...
    i have just one question:
    i do have a slight problem with the plans for her...
    on the rendering the traveler is placed at the transom - the tiller goes underneath it through a cutout...
    unfortunately nothing of this is seen on the frames for it - in contrast the plans show 2 hatches there for storing the gas tank and the outboard...

    have you already planned where you gonna place the traveler or how you gonna work around that issue?

    keep up the good work! ;-)

    morning all

    Well its official she is upside down with no injuries or damaged to boat. Did not go all the way according to plan as front bracket broke after about quater of a turn so it was up to manpower to flip her. I am very impressed with my work as she took a lot of dragging and lying on her side with no damage yipppeeeeeeee
