Default Launched. 1992 Whitewater 28

After having the new project at home I thought I'd start the refurb thread
What I have is a 1992 28 whitewater that I bought off craigslist in Miami .
She will be getting new tanks bottom paint removed
All new wiring ,steering ,electronics , motors.
The boat had no trailer and no motors. This is a budget redo for me so to craigslist I went to find a used trailer. Anytime you can pay 50-60 cents to the dollar instead of new is good in my book for certain parts for the boat so I always look on here and craigslist for decent deals.

Bought a Cruise-on by Rocket trailer on Craigslist.
10500# tandem axle . Beyond clean very happy with it just need to push the
Winch stand back a few feet and she will be perfect she's built for a 32 ft boat it seems. Not a great pic but you get the idea of the trailer Attachment 657782. Bottom paint and powder coat on bracket also blasted off a few weeks back by the farrow blast system it sure saved a bunch of work.

I'll try to keep the sideways pics to a minimum. Is there a direction that the Iphone takes pics that wont do that.

Try setting your portrait lock when taking pictures. To do it from the home screen pull up the lower menu (the one with the volume and brightness controls) top right corner is a lock wth a partial circle on it, engage it.. the phone will remain in portrait mode only.

Nice work so far by the way.

Does the offset Rams look normal at all it seems like
something I may change out. Not sure if that would tweek the tabs under a lot of tab or
put the mount on the boat under more pressure

Man I am getting tired of the sideways pics. I'm sure others are as well. I'll get this worked out so the thread is more enjoyable

Had some tiny blisters from barnacles that the farrow blaster exposed. Ground and epoxied them. Had Fiberglass coatings inc match the gel coat. I started spraying yesterday. It's turning out great. I used duratech / gel coat mixture and got 4 thin coats on with very little orange peel. Thank you duratech!! I sanded wet sanded and buffed a 16 inch section tonight. Looks great I'm very pleased with how it's turning out .
