    You guy's are sure right. He can fix that easily- fixing himself is a whole nother pay grade where he don't need to go.

      After thinking about how to get it blocked up again, and working on it yesterday, I decided not to. Clean and paint bottom where it is then roll her over and do the other side. Then raise the bow with the boom on the forklift and the sling. Back the trailer under and done. If I have to, once the bow is on the trailer, I can lift the stern with the forklift. Thats the plan. Think I'll fix the forklift first.

          How'd the keel hold up?

          Gerry.....do you think it'd be worth getting a small crane in there, picking it up once. I have no idea what those costs would be....but....it may be the safest way and easiest. Nows the time to ask for help.
          Who knows, the crane guy may be a Shamrock owner too? My 2 cents...again.

            Think I've got it figured out. No damage to the boat. If I need help, I will ask for it. Probably get a crane for free if I need it.

              Damn Gerry! I'm glad you are unscathed! Working alone, you must operate with a heightened sense of self-preservation.

              Iffen the forklift needs brakes, please fix it now! My local machinist who repaired my hydraulic cylinders - and could make them from scratch - neglected the brakes on his forklift. It rolled while he was offloading it with his apprentice behind the controls, and it crushed him to death. It was tragic and unnecessary. The guy was a genius machinist and a fine gentleman.

              Get the help with the free crane!

                  I suppose it'll stop, but you just don't know when.

                  Got the forklift running good. Had to go pick up a trailer in Charleston Monday and worked on it yesterday. Probably today also. Then will get back on my 26. Buying a new 4400 PSI pressure washer. Great for the bottom and my house. $1,000 but that is what someone would charge me for 1/3 of what I need done at the house. My time is cheap these days.

                    Don’t sell yourself short, your time maybe cheap these days but your value to yourself and those around you certainly is not.

                        Searching my pile today and found a couple of fixable Hooters and a full sheet of 1/2" starboard. Swim platform solved. The Hooters also solve another problem. I am going with a set of stainless exhaust manifolds that came off an I/O. No risers and I could not find surge chambers. I believe the hooters, with flaps on either the exhaust thru hull or the back of the hooter, will solve the problem of water surging up into the engine. Think I'll glass some pipe into the hooters, ala Holty, and put the flap on the back. Will look cool. Thinking this will quiet it some also. What y'all think.

                          I'd say go for it....unless you think it could be louder than it was before?

                            That is a great idea. My Mack has Hooters and I don't think it is that loud, it might be for the boats off my transom...

                            I am thinking about welding a flange on these so they can be screwed to the Hooter outlet and then adding flaps.
