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.
