Have you ever wondered how to flip a boat so that you can work on the bottom?

In this video, ACBS member, Tom Horn, shows you how using 3-inch wide straps, chain hoists and comealongs. Tom discusses ceiling attachment points, adequate rigging, and equipment needed to lift the boat safely. This technique, says Tom, which requires minimal additional assistance, can save you lots of money on pizza and beer.
