You'd almost want a rig that you bolt the boat into and can then flip over... similar to an engine rig for cars... but much more complicated!

Can't you just jack the boat up on stands and go underneath to work on it?

I usually use and engine hoist and a forklift, although 2 engine hoists should work..
One on bow eye and other end onto chain bolted through engine bolt holes..
