Well, last night was the first night we got to start working on the boat and I think we made some good progress under the circumstances.

Heres some pictures of where we started....

(Click to enlarge)

           

So the first plan of action was to disconnect and remove the motor....then we hit our first road block.....the engine hoist completely failed us and buckled.....luckly it did it just as the motor came off the motor mounts and not while it was lifted up 3 feet to clear the stern.



so we lifted the motor and put it back on the mounts and moved onto removing the pump.....the first goal of the project is to replace the wood on the rear transom.....as you can tell from the pictures....it was pretty rotted.....as i scooped it out, some of it looked like planting soil/mulch  :o

Heres a few pictures of the pump coming out....

         

looks like a beaver was chewing on the impeller...



Heres the transom before we started hacking away at it...

   

...and let the hacking begin...

             

In those last 2 pictures you can see where the fiberglass coating of the wood still stands and its VERY strong I might add...

Heres some more random pictures of the pump on the ground....

Do you plain on fixing just the damage  area on the gel coat or just re gel coating the whole boat. I would like to know more on how you plain on fixing it because I heard repairing gel coat with metal flake underneath is difficult and my boat has the same problems as yours.

well, we would like to redo the gelcoat on the entire boat, but it all comes down to money. If anything, we will just redo the bow and stern which are the worst parts.

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Re: Car ran into back of boat...
« on: November 10, 2006, 10:28:31 am »
Alright...Might as well get this section started.

I parked my boat on the side of the street and unfortunately...some fool ran into the back of it.  It didn't do much damage but did take some of the paint and fiberglass off.

My question...  is there a way to fix myself (just patch it up) rather than take it to a shop and have my wallet drained?

I will post a pick of the small damage soon

Post up some pictures when you get a chance....

Fiberglass repairs can be easily done if you have the place to do it and the patience. Take your time and do it right the first time. :)

Same as your Karma system just a different name for it, I like the idea as long as it isn't abused...

it really cant be abused...theres 30 minute time delay between when you can give karma....I will raise that time limit if I have to.
