Default Rebirth of a 1984 Omie Tillet Sportsman

I recently purchased a 1984 Sportsman. Im told this boat was built after Omie sold the company but that Craig Blackwell was running the shop at the time it was built. The boat was in pretty good shape when I bought it but I am wanting to make some changes to it that Im excited about. I love the history of these boats and Am looking forward to the finished result. The plan is as follows


New Mezz in cockpit
Teak Cockpit floor
Teak covering boards and Combing pads
redo teak toe rail
new Simrad Electronics
New soft goods and Isen glass
New Canvas
New soft white paint job with Royal blue boot stripe
New blue bottom paint
3 U/W lights
new Under gunnel and overhang lighting
New Holly floor in salon
Some TV's and Fusion Entertainment system
New teak helm chair, pod, and fighting chair
Mask on front of house
new teak transom wrap with Boat name
All new JL speakers
Redoing forward master shower.
Added new props

Boat has 6V92's 550's


I know some think the work is over the top or a sin to do certain things but My family and I are looking forward to making the boat ours. Weve run into some of the normal wood boat issue and have had to do some extensive work up in the bow but we are getting excited every day we make progress. Pics to follow


thanks

Right click them, open them in paint, and then go to resize. Click the circle next to pixels and make them 1000 wide. Then save them and upload them.

Some pics to add. We are scheduled to hit the paint booth in 10 days. We got the underwater lights installed,over hang lights installed, all the stereo and tv's inside. The front bow wood replacement is coming along good and we can't wait to see her with her new paint, boot stripe and bottom painted. Also got the new props in last week. Shooting for a splash in December. Had some custom Rods Built by JL and paired them with 2-130's,2-80's, 6-50's all Shimano. As soon as she's out of the paint booth we pick up back where we left off with the Mezz, cockpit teak, and covering boards. Also got some fresh hardware in for the riggers and sent the soft goods off for new upholstery. Found some pics of before we purchased her hopefully they will load. New paint is going to be Snow White with a royal blue boot stripe and blue bottom paint

It was Cuervo before I owned it. Not sure of the previous names.

I think I would focus, first, second and third on that little hole in the bow before worrying about new speakers ...
