She is a project but going to be sweet. I'm also in need of a road trailer considering I didn't want to get the dolly if anyone has a gullwing trailer please let me know.

Looks like a future top 10er! 

Keep us updated with the build.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

It's 380lb lay up. Not going to be able to save the gel though. It's to far gone with the repair work done and the cap.

Not as much progress as I'd like to see but I fixed a broken upright under the dash with a new pad , built a new bulkhead to fix the broken on and got a trailer to start rigging for the hull. Should start getting more done now though

How did I miss this. lol. I'm going with a dark metallic grey to match my truck. All black hardware, black pump, and that's about as far as I got. Maybe a design but I like the look of 18's when they're solid.

Changed the front brackets and made them taller, then cut the narrow fenders off added some 9" ones and lowered then down a bit. Seems like she is gonna start coming together soon. Still a long list

Haven't done any updates lately. Bottom is just about done, pending some finish coats. Flipper her over, took the gunnel braces out and made new ones that connect to the stringers and a water dam, removed the cut out for the valve because it was not installed straight by previous owner, made a new one and re installed it. Fixed some stress cracks. No I just gotta glue everything in place. Do finish work and it's primer time then paint.

Now on the list is addressing the monster hole that was cut in the back of the transom. Made some filler pieces, back cut it, glued them in place and on to the glass and finish work. Should turn out bitchen

Nice. I seen Kelly post a pic of the rail kit. Gonna be a clean float for sure. Lmk is you need a second set of hands and eyes when you're getting ready to put it back together. I'm always down to give a helping hand.

Other things have come up and time to list her for sale.  5k for the trailer and hull. I have more invested in time and labor then that in this boat.  If no one wants to pay that much Iíll just keep her.

Other things have come up and time to list her for sale.  5k for the trailer and hull. I have more invested in time and labor then that in this boat.  If no one wants to pay that much Iíll just keep her.
Say it isn't so!
