painting the hull of a Status 580
I have just bought a Status 580 that needs a good scrub and a paint job. Can I pull the boat off the trailer onto a grassy area and roll it upside down to clean and paint the hull without damaging the topsides? Ideas and suggestions welcomed. Kev

Hi Kevin
Yes and No, Yes you roll it over on grass quite easily, but I would let the raised cabin touch the round, the RL can be supported by sawhorses, so a Status would be no worries. Ive also heard but not tried rolling over on small square bales of hay, which are fairly readily available no matter where you are...
