Well this is my new project boat ;D 1976 Fantasy i am told it was a splash off a sleekcraft but is a little wider. first things first is to clean it all out, I have a friend lined up to do a clear coat for it and then we will start with the pump and move forward ;)

 The engine is a 455 Olds thats been punched out .40 over with rebuilt "K" heads and a Nodular crank,  also has the oiling mods done (restricters)

 Today i spent scraping the old glue and carpet off the floor, Man what a bitch! But its done unless Jim say's different ( he probably will) but im lucky to have his help and knowledge. Here's a few pics as we go along.

Yes im going to finish this one, its my boat this time ;D

Well i havnt really got that much done to it yet. Been busy on other stuff, so i finally said  F it i have been wanting to swap trailers for awhile now and i finally did it, just me and the ol'lady ;D

Got the stand  done today to so now i can start the trailer overhaul. Believe me it needs it, but it will be worth the time and money spent doing it.

Next i will spend some time cleaning a shed full of parts and get them ready to be installed hopefully some time soon ;D

A Fantasy, don't see too many of them around any longer. I don't know a thing about them except that the guy that built them was Worth Potts, he would later close out that shop (I don't know why) and then he started up Galaxie boats which I believe is still in biz? Maybe his kid runs it now or maybe they sold out, I don't know. Worth was a great guy and I first met him years ago wehn I was at Tahiti in the 70's. He'd come by to get to get something that he ran out of, he and Schuster were friends. Worth was a cowboy, always wore boots and a western style of shirt.

As fate would have it the guy that my mom is married to now was the guy that made all the windshields for Fantasy boats back in the day, for the tri hulls and such. 

Cool project...I know you weren't looking for any history but just thought I'd post it up before I forgot it.  ;)

Well the trailer is almost done, just have to have the tongue extended now.

So i figured i better start on the Fantasy project, im probably doing it backwards but im sanding all the old carpet glue and bilge paint off as you can see in the pics we drilled holes in the floor so it will dry out.

I think it has cause now when i walk on it , it just cracks.  Im going to cut out the floor here in a day or two.

I dont know if you can see the rise in the floor(center) but its where its cracking when i walk on it. I wonder why ??? ;D

The floor is a lot easier to replace than you might think.

So stringers should be even easier, RIGHT?
