Lol.....just testing the waters. I'm really on the fence about selling. We'll see what happens. Someone would get a killer boat that's for sure!

Wow. For sale!!!!! I admire someone who can put their life, sweat (21 hour day in the paint booth!!!!!), money, and karma into a boat, and then turn around and sell it. I'm just amazed!!! I must be a little weird. If I get a boat that I love, and just do some tiny, little projects to customize it, you would have to pry it out of my cold, dead, fingers to get it away from me. The boat becomes personal to me.....not just a hunk of fiberglass and metal. But then, some folks look like they swap boats every year. It just goes to show that it takes all kinds of us to make the world go 'round.


Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful restore!!!! Good luck!

Is this the type of work that you do? If I buy a project boat, would you do the complete project? This is an amazing boat! I'd have to release every fish so not to get bloody!

Been following your rebuild, I really like how the console turned out where your GPS flush mounts. I picked this boat a couple weeks ago dirt cheap

Wow, I don't know how you could sell that craft. If I could convince the Mrs. it would be in Texas. Do you know what year they stopped putting Balsa in the 31's?

Here are a few shots from yesterday on the water. We have been using it and everything is working perfect. All furuno electronics are awesome the chirp sounder will hold bottom over 40mph.

Here is a shot of the back. Scuppers well above the water line. It rides perfect with the Suzuki 300's zero handling issues and she rides perfect.

Coastal,

I noticed you removed the aluminum trim around the inside of the boat, any plans on replacing it?
