Dropped her off today at my fiberglass guy.

Stripped her. Down to two motor options. white 2006 250hp and 300hp verados. The 2012 verados are a bit bit more but canít even imagine this hull with those.

todays progress.

Man I'd Ben really anxious to hear performance results with 300 VRODs. As mentioned, I personally don't think the weight will be much an issue, I couldn't get water into the scuppers sitting idle with a full tank and me and by brother in law on the swim platforms, we tried and we have a combined weight of over 500 lbs. with my 250 XS's I can see 60mph, curious as hell if the Verados will do more👍

some fiberglass progress.

Moving right along quickly! March first is the date. So far within budget.

The perfect power for this boat is the brand new Mercury V8 four strokes at 300hp. They are 20k out of my budget. Next year is reasonable without getting a divorce.

My local Yamaha guy just got a set of 2006 250hp Yamaha four strokes on trade for a great price that will possibly hold the place until next year. This way I can use my old rigging etc.

Looks like the best option should they have a good history and can't get too hurt running them for a year or two until the desired set up.

Default Sweet Rig

I recently did (not built) a 1996 26/28. These are great hulls. They really are fast. Good luck and post lots of pics

Frank, you asked me when we spoke where I found my opti's, I bought them from lagarto three years go when he repowered to his zukes, he's a stand up guy. 👍​​​​​​

Before, once the old was removed


When the glass man shot it with final paint
If your budget allows, do without any starboard. You will not regret it. I went from this to this in my restoration.

I would respectfully disagree on a stainless steel rubrail. I have an Intrepid with an all white rubrail and a white Whaler with a white rubrail with stainless steel insert. I just ordered an Albury Bros and went with all white.

First, Intrepids look best sleek and without anything taking your eye away from the boat itself. Donít need a stainless steel rubrail doing that.

Second, a SS rubrail is a nightmare for anyone else who you might tie up alongside.

I have a 15 Whaler runabout and it scares me to death to pull up to my Intrepid without bumpers out so I donít scratch the hull.

I say dont do it.

Thumbs up

All good and no offense here, I get your opinion and your not wrong about the others who are mooring up. I personally like the SS but can also and honestly say the solid White looks great if that's the theme of the hull. I get it

Default Rub rail


This is the rub rail I am using on my Intrepid 32 renovation. I used the same one on my 25 sea vee restoration. Nice , straight , no visible fasteners. They make them in 4 different sizes.
