Good candidate for a project. Love these boats.

Always like to see hard work getting done in inclement weather.

Default Little more today

Filled in the transom with 2 3/4 coosa boards. Glass between. Clamps and stainless screws squeezing it all together.

After it kicked doing some work on the inside more layers of Matt. Have a 1/4 20x20 piece of plate stainless Ill be drilling out to match the outboard bracket that should be a bit stronger than the stainless washers. Should keep the new motor firmly attached for many many years.

Default Time for a new motor

We get an extra 5 year warranty on the motor if its instAlled before 3/31/2019 for a total of 10 years of coverage. This is worth changing the normal order of operations up for and hanging the motor before the rest is done. Im going to leave the new decks, new paint, and the cleanup for after the motor install to take advantage of that deal. The guys at riverfront marine will probably enjoy pulling new fuel lines and cables on a boat with no deck a little better too.

Got the gel coat on. Looking a bit rough but Im up against the clock so Ill need to fix it all after the new motor is rigged up. This will seal it all up much better than it was before. I plan to have the gunnels go all the way around the transom and add some rod holders and cup holders on top.

Purchased some 1/4 thick stainless and cut it to 20x20 to cover the whole area where the motor bracket bolts up. I also have some 3 strips to match for the swim platforms but well leave those off for now. Sealed the hell out of it so this bracket should be absolutely bulletproof with no compression of the transom.

Dropped it off to have the new motor installed and Im off to Florida for a week. Hopefully I come back to a nice new motor and some weather that inspires me to get the rest done ASAP.

That dealers gonna have to put in some work. Batteries, switches, prolly needs some way to route it all thru the transom and tie under gunnels which you dont have in the stern yet.

I hope this dealer likes you

Default Back at it

Finally picked it up from the shop with the new motor on it. It was done in just a few days but life got busy and the weather sucked.

Now that the new motor is hung the rest of the boat looks like a pig.

Starting with the deck rebuild. It was fished commercially for bugs at one time and the owner removed the deck on one side to fill below the deck with weights so it would ride right with traps on the other side.

To fix I am using the 3/4 coosa to build a support up Against the hull and bonding the original deck pieces in with hull and deck.
