Default Post a Link To Your Project/Restoration Thread

I really enjoy reading about the projects and restorations many of you are undertaking. Some amazing work being done!

Thought it might be nice compose a thread with links to your favorite project/restoration threads.

Tipsy

EDIT: The title of the thread is "Post a LINK to Your Project/Restoration Thread." - Please, just post a link.

It's nothing like ringleader's or anybody else's reconstruction, but this was my 20' kencraft: http://www.pigdogtoad.com/stuff/boat/kencraft/journal/

I'm about to start rewiring my 23' pathfinder and installing electronics. I'll start a thread when that gets going.

The forums at bateau.com have a lot of cool builds going on with tons of pictures. I've spent a lot of hours reading those threads.

Ringleader, I'm a little confused, on page one you have water draining out of the transom from the ducer bracket. On page 7 it states the transom is fine ?

THe paint work was done by Stan Harris in Prairieville, LA. I highly recommend him. James did the T-top for $3900 if I remember correctly.

I figured out that there was a solid fiberglass seperation between the main transom and the bottom 10" of the transom where those thru-hulls and the transducer were. I recored that section with 1" thick coosa board. Other than that, all I could find was 1 damp spot by a bracket mounting bolt. I dried the area for several months and sleeved all the bracket bolt holes with PVC and epoxy.

interesting, so did you go about cutting the outer skin or inner skin ? did you do anything to fasten the coosa to the original wood, mechanically or chemically ? i would like to see pics, if i missed them on your thread just say so.
