Any one have any method on turing a H16 over so I can perform some keel repair. Short of tipping it up on one hull and letting it crash down. One catch, there will be no one around to help so I must do it single handed.

I have turned my 16 over myself many times. lift the boat
to its balance point and step to the other side and ease it down.
It is much easier with some help if you can get it.

Consider stepping the mast and laying the boat over on it's side. Not only will you avoid having to lower it to the ground while accomodating the crown of the front crossbar, it will be easier to return it to it's feet when you are done.

I need to do some keel repair over the off season. I dropped the boat off of the trailer onto the driveway (using some old pads from chairs for cushioning). I was then able to lift the Hobie 16 to it's balance point, step to the other side, and lower the boat carefully to the ground. I used chair pads to cushion the boat anywhere where it would be touching the ground.


I then used some cheap furniture dollies from Home Depot and some 2x4s to place under the boat, so I could move it around easily in my garage to work on it...

To summarize, pretty easy to do, but I helps to have some spare hands around while flipping it...
