The crew has been fed and watered and now are mellow enough for the critical evolution!
We’ve place lifting straps through the molds midships so there’s no strain or rubbing on our planking. Jim1 holds the bow up- we’re a little bow heavy- and Jim2 tails the stern. Bill hauls up on chain-fall on his side while Eric lets his down slowly on other side.
Two sets of mover’s dollies with carpet cushions have been placed underneath and when the gunwales touch them as the boat rolls over they move the boat along. Then a set is placed at the turn of the bilge and finally the first set is repositioned for the false keel. Nothing touches the condenser.
Finally, both chain-falls are haul up so we can slide the base back in, and the boat is lowered in place.
Last step is to ensure the boat is level fore and aft and athwartships and then blocked firmly in place.
Easy-Peasy… and all is finished by normal quitting time!
