That is a lot of work brother. Looks better than new. Slow and steady wins the race on a build like this. Great job!

I think itís too much blue haha but yes I was thinking the same on the interior if I donít keep all of the colors in it. And either way I do it the white will be the color it is now which is a cream pearl white like this.....

My boat is all blue and silver. Everyone told me that it will be too much of the color blue when I put in blue carpet and blue seats. I get so many people telling that they canít believe all that blue works and pops so well.

I think the blue carpet looks right. Personally, for the interior, I would go all white or cream white with either orange or blue piping.

Welcome to the madness. Personally, I would re-gasket the intake, heads, timing cover and water pump plate. Sometimes water gets into the oil @ the water pump plate/timing cover from stagnant water sitting in the block and rusting through. Cool boat

Yeah, I had the same problem. I opened up the oil returns in the heads, switched to tall and baffled valve covers, and added the catch can. That fixed the oil spraying out of the breathers. It was so friggin frustrating. If I had to do it all over again, I would tap the heads and run drain hoses directly to the pan.

Looks like you scored. I noticed a breather/puke tank in the back of the motor. How do you have that set up?

I paid a fortune for the boat. The lady wouldnít take a penny under $8500 Had to rebuild or replace everything. It was the exact gel coat/boat I had searched for my whole life. So it was worth it.

That oil catch can is mounted on the ski tow. I have a closed push-in breather on the valvecover. From the breather I ran a 5/8 hose to the catch can. So far, the catch can collected most of the condensation on top.

That flake and gel looks AWESOME!  Sounds good.
By the way, Did you happen to find any Chevy keys at the ramp right where you launched? I lost some about 20 years ago.

Thanks Dave! I was looking for a of keys set I lost too. Lol. That flake gel is original and damn near flawless. Iím the second owner. The boat was custom ordered in 75. Garaged itís entire life. Parked in 93. Sat for 23 years. I bought it in 2016 and rebuilt the entire boat.

Nice boat.

Check the wheel bearings.

I re-did all of the bearings, seals, and buddy bearings the day before. Re-did that one wheel when I got home. Thank you for the suggestion

Yes, that is Pyramid Lake

Better video

beautiful boat. Sounds great too

Thank you!

Took my Southwind out today to make sure everything was good for next weekend. Aside from losing a bearing buddy on one trailer wheel, ran great. Just put the motor back in. 455 Olds, new heads, cam, carb, headers and valve train. Motor was fresh but wanted more power. So, tore into it for no good reason. Very happy with the results.

I reserved spot 22 for Memorial too. I love hanging with Jim. I missed last year. At this point, looks like my 2nd job wonít give me the weekend off this year. Pretty frustrating. I can hold the spot if someone else wants it. If I canít get the weekend off, Iíll try and run out there late Saturday to say hi.
