Turning the boat over
I want to carry out some maintenance on my boat. One of the things I want to do is tidy up the underneath of the boat ( clean up the scratches, respray etc ).
Obviously, it is very difficult whilst the boat is on the trailer, especially to do a good spray job. To accomplish this, I want to somehow turn the boat over.
The engine will be off, and the console will be out etc so basically, all that will remain is the hull and tubes.
Is it safe for me to turn the boat over and lay it on the floor of the garage upside down with the trailer removed ? It weighs approx. 160KG with everything removed.
Should I inflate or deflate the tubes and will it damage them if the weight of it all is on the tubes ?
It will probably be like this for a couple of weeks. I know it will take the help of a few friends to lift the boat up and turn it over.
Alternatively, does anyone have any better ideas of working on the bottom without buying loads of specialised equipment ?
Many Thanks in advance.
