Just picked this float up for $1000.00 1975 Southwind mini day cruiser. Gonna start the restoration this week, new Gel coat, Interior, rebuild pump, etc. Complete restoration will keep progress photos coming. My dad is a 20 year southwind day cruiser owner his boat is super clean and never once had a problem, it was pretty easy for me to choose a hull I wanted. This will be a family boat with a little get up in it haha. Any suggestions is welcomed, my first restoration so if there is any advice id greatly appreciate it.

What type of wheels are those? I'm looking for them. Lost one last weekend on my way out to the river when my hub flew off and haven't been able to find them.
