I know, I can't help myself when it comes to overkill.
I have too many nightmare trailer stories to share.

Really coming along! Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see her completed!

By the way, the photo in your signature always tricks my eye. The other hull makes the Stamas look like a huge, asymmetrical catamaran!

I love the tread - keep those pictures coming.
It's nice to see that Iím not the only one who is not afraid to let their family, friends and neighbors think that they are nuts for the love of an old boat. Mine is a 1972 Sportcraft that I got free on Craigslist . (I was operating at a profit for a while because I found a penny on it when I cleaned her out!)
Not many Sportcrafts made it to Seattle
Thank god for this forum - Without it I'd have never undertaken the task or replacing the transom and all stringers.

Make sure you start your own build thread, I love watching these old boats brought back to life!

Looks great. I've flirted with the idea of a remodel on my next boat....but I'm currently in a house like that and if I could do it over again I would have just built new. I'm assuming a boat would be the same way.

Yes, the top was low on these. Looked sleek like that, but not functional. The hardest part was getting the rake right on the new frames so it didn't look too boxy when done. I think when I get the 36" offset bracket and the motors hanging off the back, it will look fairly proportional. Does'nt matter at this point. It will be what it is.

The 24 is a great boat with lot's of potential. The 26 measures exactly 26' form the stern to the bow. The beam is 9'6" +/- at midships. The overall lenght when done will be right at 31 with the motors. Post a pic of your boat.
