There is NO doubt as to the amount of hours in there! I trust you took all precautions for your lungs!?

The mask you see in the picture wasn't good so I went and got a heavy duty mask which didn't allow no dusk to come through. I also went from safety glasses (which is in the picture also) to goggles. I think I'm going to make it a habit to always wear a mask even if I'm sanding outside.

Default I almost bought this boat

I found this boat in GA. in a boat salvage yard. Before I bought the boat that I'm restoring now I was going to buy this boat. They where asking $900 and I was going to try to get it for $500. Someone beat me to it (I'm glad someone beat me to it because I wouldn't of had the boat that I have now). This would of made a good offshore/inshore boat once it was restored.

It would have, but it's not as pretty as what you have now.....

Now, not wanting to hijack, but now I have to share my project

I bought a high end roller/brush. That makes me fill good that you can't tell if I roll/brushed or sprayed. I nick pick everything. Even the smallest crack in the cabin got sanded to the bare wood. I'm going to roll/brush the entire boat. Once I come out of the cabin and the marine paint that I will be using, on there web site they claim you can brush it on with a broom and it will still SELF LEVEL. $200 a gallon you would think it comes with the painter also.

After 7 days from today the 5200 will be 100% cured (yes I know it sucks that it takes 7 days before it fully dries) then I can tighten everything down. I won't be pulling the boat on the trailer with the winch from the bow eye. A boat this size you just want to float it onto the trailer. The bow eye will be used to secure it once it's on the trailer.

I've never waited 7 days for 5200 to cure on anything. Good luck!

I'm just going by the instructions. I probably want wait the full 7 days. Then again I probably will. The boat want be ready in 7 days so time is on my side. Look at my transom and tell me what you think I can do for a livewell. If you look at the floor there's a hatch that's pretty close to the transom so I don't have much space. I would love to come up with a way to have a built in livewell into the transom.

I don't know, but live wells in the floor suck. You either have to keep bending down, or getting on your knees or have a long bait net.

I don't want the livewell in the floor I want it built into the transom. I was telling you to keep in mind the hatch that's in the floor next to the transom when giving me ideas.

I must have missed the pics of the transom, but I don't think it would be hard to either buy or build (if you have the skills) a live well into it or attached to it.
