Rolling a 16′ sharpie Lug sail Yawl.

Well the hull is finally ready for rolling over. There are just a few small jobs to be done to make this happen.Preparing to roll a 16' sharpie lug sail yawl by Roeboats, West Cork Ireland For sale

First I have to remove the strongback and the support that are holding the boat up. I had to get in under the boat and unscrew all of this and make sure it didn’t fall on me.

  1. Nice job. Looks like no toes were injured in the process. I’m considering building a Catbird 16 myself. I’ll be watching your progress and learning a few things. I will probably be writing a bit about the design and mentioning your efforts in my blog.

  2. Thanks Chris, Oh I’ve been glad I wear steel toed shoes many times. Good look with the build. Just had a quick look at your blog. I have to agree with you there is nothing that looks as good as a schooner.
