Lyra Phase 2-1
When Lyra was delivered here a few weeks earlier, I’d put her in my secondary shop bay for safekeeping, since this space was open and available.
Planning for the beginning of the project in earnest in January, I took advantage of a good weather forecast with mild temperatures and a still-snowless property to shuffle the boats between the shops, moving Lyra into my main shop where I planned to complete the work ahead. I set her up pretty close to level side to side (things had shifted just a bit after I’d completed the stands and blocking, but easily adjustable from there), and eyeballed her longitudinal level vis-a-vis the obvious “real” waterline vice the painted version. Keeping her as close to level in both directions would help when it came time to set up for striking the new waterline and boottop later during the hull work.
