I have an Isotope 16 that needs bottom repairs on the hulls. Does anyone know where it is
safe to lift underneath with jacks? I am told that the hulls on Isotopes are fragile.
Thank you
from Raleigh NC

I haven't been on this forum for a long time, it seems very quiet. We don't have Isotopes in Ireland, but we do have cats of similar weight. It is not very heavy at 125kg. 2 people, or 4 at the most would lift it off its trailer and turn it upside down to carry out the repairs. Repairs to the bottom of the hulls are much easier with the boat upside down.

Just make sure that you put the cat down on a soft surface. Make sure that you use cushions, or foam blocks, or something similar. Concrete or gravel will scratch the gel coat.

I have clean foam blocks that used to support a dock. I think I will cover those with
drop cloths too when the project gets underway.
