I searched around the forum and didnít see a winter projects thread so Iím starting one!

Post what youíre working on over the winter. Doesnít have to be boat related!

Here is one of my main projects below to start this off.

Replacing the flooring and original carpet and having the wood framing/structure replaced in the original seats. Also Going to install new fuel filter & water pressure regulator with driver side dump, all new HPS water hoses and new fuel lines as well as remove and if necessary replace the internal fuel tank pickups (probably original), new throttle cable and cleanup the stereo amp wires. The boat is a 1977 Tahiti Super Tiger and was all original with under 70 hours when I got it two years ago. Should be a busy winter with a lot more work to do. Pics below. And please post up your good projects!

Floor is done and new carpet is in. What a job! Way more work than I expected for this small boat! Seats, stereo and new fuel/water lines to be installed next week. Should be ready for an early February run!

Home stretch now! New fuel lines/water separator installed, all electrical cleaned up (every damn wire on the boat), new stereo installed, test fitted the rebuilt seats (new wood, original upholstery). Just have the carb left to rebuild and the new pressure regulator/water hoses. Then the polishing begins!

I want to put the water pressure regulator dump on my side so I can feel it with my hand while running. Any thoughts on that decision? I am a bit hesitant that it will look out of place. Anyone have pics of a similar setup?

Nice man! Are you having the gel coat redone or just wet sanding/buffing? Mine shines well but is cracking a lot at the bow. Iím wondering if a full strip and new gel coat is my only option.

Finally got my seats wrapped and they game out sweet. Got some pics of the motor getting some love and a huge shout out to Nick at Mad Skillz for all the cool stuff he has made for me. He definitely takes pride in his work and gets it done in a timely manner with good prices.

Not a jet, but me and a buddy are redoing a hydrostream vulture. New stringers and a good chunk of the core got put in today. I have never had an outboard before so it should be fun. We are putting a 200 merc on it with 10 or 12 inch setback with a low water pickup on it and hoping to cut the mid down to a 15 inch....but we will see....and somebody painted it black over the beautiful original blue flake paint🤬

Tracy just did some work to his boat over the weekend too. He put on a ride plate and a shoe I believe and something else I think he said. Looks killer. And I'm getting ready to have some pump work done myself. The Missouri crew is prepping for the coming season
