Over the last few days I was able to get a good chunk of work done.  One layer of 1808 on the transom,  bedded the stringers in volcum, tabbed all but the center stringer, cut all the bulkheads and associated tabbing, and made the crack repair to the inside of the hull. I ended up getting sick of watching the volcum dry so I made the executive decision to just cover it up, wet or tacky,  i didn't care.

While setting up for the crack repair I had to laugh..... you could see right through the crack.  You could also see between the major cracks the hull looked like it flattened out( lost its curve). Some duct tape (aluminium, to keep the resin in the boat), two jacks and some scrap wood to get the strake back into shape. While all those lawyers of 1808 were still wet I threw the stringer in there and tabbed it in.

Shawn stopped by yesterday and helped me flip the hull.  It went pretty easy with the arm I had welded up the bolts into the key hole.  It is a copy of the one up in Ontario,  his name escapes me.  I used a cherry picker at the transom and a come along and a large eye bolt through the garage door header at the front.  As for condition if the hull I'm really hoping to not have to bring this up to Shawn's place but the more I look at it the more it looks like that is what will happen.  Lots of blisters,  lots of cracks,  a few glass delaminations, then there is the original crack.

Nicely done.  I remember flipping the timing hull in a similiar way, gets a bit sketchy when it comes over center.   As for the hull cracks, do you repair/reenforce the inside first, or do you repair the outside in?

Good job! Glad it went well for you!
The bottom of my 23 was also very bad once it was turned over, it took a lot of work to smooth it out again but was well worth the work. Just a good set of arms and a long sanding block!
Are you planning on re painting the whole boat?

The only area reinforced was the big crack.  The rest looked fine from the inside. For now I'm just grinding out all the cracks then depending how big they are I'm laying csm in and building it up.

A little update.  The area where the original crack occurred had a few serious issues.  The area near the inner lifting strake had stress cracks in the gel so I started chasing the cracks.  I stopped chasing them when I got to the last layer of glass.  Lots more grinding to do but getting there. other side was mostly blister repair, two smaller delaminations and the hook ground and filled.  As for the pad there were a few bad gouges that were well into the glass that were filled.  All in all this thing was trash. I included a picture of one of the rear corners showing a blister that was previously broke out and filled with silicone. I chased the blister which ended up being pretty large.

Looks like a fair amount of progress.   Never figured out how the majority of the osmotic blisters occur on the strakes, and the bottom mostly.  I found a few on the sides of the strakes, but mostly the horizontal surface.   Is your plan to have this project completed this season?
