A member of the A team came over this afternoon and we got the grinder out on the transom. the fiberglass and first layer of wood is removed. i ran out of light so i will have to wait til tomorow to finish. this wood was pretty saturated.

what are yalls thoughts on using PL glue to hold the wood together when i close in the transom compared to using resin? I've seen a few guys do it and it seems to be really solid.

You will also need a lot of time and patience...but you can't buy that anywhere...
West Marine will match the lowest prices you get. You just have to let them know and let them verify. If you order on line, wait for the free shipping with minimum $99 order and it will come right to your door.

Assuming Poq=Poquoson, There's acouple Mako rebuilds going on in our area...and mine being in good ol' Bull Island itself. Check out Eastern Burlap in Norfolk. EasternBurlap.com. They have everything you'll need for fiberglassing.

Waterfront Lumber in Hampton has the best prices on marine plywood i've found. And stock every thickness.

I've done my entire rebuild from the knowledge on classicmako, so keep workin on that account and it'll be worth it.

Here's my rebuild thread on there if you have any questions

I took out about 90 percent of it and used a 3 or 4in pvc pipe cut in half. can't remember which diameter off the top of my head. Instead of putting limber holes down the keelson, I have the fwd section of the pvc open so water will channel into it and then its a straight shot down the inside of the pvc. The tank will be completely enclosed with only drainage off the top of the tank. Plan is to cut the foam level with the tank and fiberglass it in.

Basically my entire project is taking bits and pieces from other mako projects, so it's all tried and true methods

Very good thread you have it. Don't give up on your project. Like most projects we start them and never finish them. I think you are doing a good job. Keep posting pictures and updates. If we was neighbours I think I'll get in trouble by the wife because I'll never come in the house. I'm restoring a 1962 28ft memco sportfisher that I'm posting the pictures of the restoration on here. Good luck. Remember don't give up.

only problem with removing the center stringer is it leaves a large gap between the stringers if that is the route you do plan on taking in raising stringers and bulkheads to original floor height if your getting away from foam, it could sag in the middle and i dont think you want that

Poqfishin13, I have found your registration at ClassicMako.com and have activated your user acct. You should be able to log in now. Please let me know if you still cannot get logged in. We've had a glitch in the forum software for quite a while now, but are working to upgrade right now.

Anyhow, I've enjoyed looking through your project pics. Please log into ClassicMako and start a thread there. Hopefully we will be able to lend some good advice in your project.

Good Luck
Ed
