Default 1982 Seavee 25 Rebuild

Rebuilding my 25 foot Seavee and thought you guys might be entertained by the pictures and what knots....

Issues: so far....
- Foam that has been in since 1982 stuff is soaked, lots of weight
- Stringers no matter how dry they look theres going to be rot and water
- Transom, if there is a bait well the transom is going to be soaked
- Aluminum tanks shot with cracks threw bottom
- Deck rotted all they way around console even good spots turned out to have rot
All above has been removed or sugically worked on to save original configuratio of boat


Possitves:
Hull is built like a tank 1 1/2 is the thinnest part of boat 4'' is the thickest (yes i said 4'')
Design of boat is time tested not sure i have been in a better fishing machine for its size.
Centerconsole layout gives extra room for rods and misc.


Materials for rebuild
- Transom 1.5 26 lb coosa board 4x8 w/ filler
- Biaxial woven glass (multiple oz's)
- Deck 3/4 26lb coosaboard 4x8
- Stainless screws (any advice on good manufactures helpful)
- general purpose resin
- dryloc paint for internal hull white kote


Pictures will be posted search shockashark on youtube and you will see the videos also....

I hoped that you removed that lower spray rail. I know it serves a purpose, but I cant stand to see someone mess up a good hull by putting that on there.

This is essentially the same boat as a good friend of mine's 25' Contender. Low cap.....this boat should already be pretty light as it is. Great riding hull!!

Setting the fiberglass laminate for water to be able to flow under tank and also keep foam from intruding into bilge area...

I hope you have a serious budget. I did the same thing to a 93 25 sea vee and in the end it was not worth it at all. I spent over 50k redoing the hull and it still needed more work to be done. If you need any help feel free to PM me.

Thanks Mike i plan on keeping this one. Promised the gentalman that passed away i would take care of her and 50k is cheap for a ride like this. I have read a lot of your posts while doing my inital home work on here and you guys are thuro so i love the knowledge base .

I just test fit a 200 gallon tank today and my big issue is foaming and the correct lbs to use so if you gott some ideas let me know.

Lots of info on tank installs and foam shouldn't be a part of it. Read Pascoe's tank install method.

200 gal of fuel is a lot for that boat. Especially for a single engine. Did you already have the tank? A 150 gal tank would free up some deck/storage space. I have an 180 gal tank and use a little more than 1/2 that on a 200 mile fishing day. And I never shut the engines off.

I am setting her up to do Tortuga's trips. When we head down there fuel always is the issue... And i am not sure on engine platform but twins are probably going to be on the list 115 or 150's....
