Bottoms up! or over?

The bottom is faired and I rolled on two coats of Interlux Primekote primer on the bottom and sides. I like the Interlux products so far and have decided to use their products exclusively thruout the rest of the build.

I was able to flip the boat over with the help of my son Jordon, Jay Fullwider and Tim Osborne, Tim has purchased a set of plans and will be using my build cradle to start on Colorado i550 #2.

 Hindsight is always 20/20 or so I have been told, if I was to do this again I would have completed my keel and keel sleeve and installed the keel sleeve before I turned the boat over the first time, this would have allowed me to prime and 100% finish the boat bottom with only one turn of the hull, and would have saved some time.

Carpet pad on the driveway worked well in preventing any scratches during the flip. Time Machine is now upright and ready to have the topsides finished.
