First step is to build a strong back to hold the boat in place during the project. The strong back is really just a frame that the boat can sit on when it is flipped upside down. Aaron built the strong back in just a few hours with scrap wood we had around the house. She isn't pretty but it should do the trick.
Now the boat is upside down and ready for the bottom to be removed. Notice that the bottom is not painted entirely. This is because we had to flip the boat before we had the bottom done to move to our current house two years ago. We only painted what we could reach while it was on the trailer (lazy yes). Not that it matters now since this bottom is being ripped off :)
