Flipping over a Sea rider

What's the best way to turn over an Avon Sea Rider Adventure 4.7 ?

The one I purchased has an awful lot of damage on the hull that needs some attention so I wondered which way you guys would suggest turning the boat over to be able to repair it all ?





If I drop it off the trailer onto the ground & then lift one side of the boat so its resting on its side / Tube & then carefully completely turn it over, will the tube be ok with all the weight on it ?, Will the joint where the hull is adhered to the tube be ok with all that weight on it when it gets to the point when its completely vertical & all the weight is support by that one glued joint ??




Any sugestions how to turn it over safely without causing further damage to the boat would much appreciated please

Thanks

4 blokes,a pack of beer,4 empty beer crates & a couple of pallets.

Feed said blokes pack of beer, stack 2x2 beer crates on 2 pallets to form 2 towers. Use 4 blokes to pick up boat & turn over, place upside down on beer crate/pallet stacks. Job done. Tweak/adjust height-position of beer crates to suit boat config.

You could use hay/straw bales as the props easier to find in cheddar than beer probably..... If your friendly with a farmer see if he will pop round with a manitou (loader) or tractor with front forks and a couple of strops.....

Great Thanks, So there no problem resting it on the tube as you turn it over !

After 2 stroke mick mentioned you, I searched you & read your sea rider thread (which is brilliant)
So in this pic where you can see the the bare Fibreglass, have you just filled the holes with Gellcoat ?.


I got some scratches / deep gourges (I get some pics later) which I bought some Gellcoat filler, should I just of bought the Gellcoat ? (although it is colour matched, 9010 pure white !)

Gelcoat Filler - RAL 9010 Pure White (inc catalyst) - East Coast Fibreglass Supplies



Thanks
