Moving The Hull part 3 outside

Well the move of the hull outside did go easier than expected and our multi wheeled caterpillar worked great and we were out in the sunshine

Our next plan was to actually rotate the hull and have it right way up. I did not want to have the hull on the ground and I did not want it damaged.

The idea was to erect a quarter hamster wheel around the hull so as it tipped it would rotate on the wheel and not the hull and ground.

The turning frames were attached and we used the holes for the ballast keel to bolt them to the hull, we then connected them with 2 by 4 making a big tyer to spread the load.

Tested by using fat man

The frame was supported off the hull according to the best laid plans this should work and the turn should go sweetly.
