It just needs a little help. Even a used newer hull would be thousands of dollars, And eventually it will end up just like this one.

Very true, but I would imagine the work you are putting into it will be into the early thousands??

This is a really nice boat but it was in serious need of some TLC and I'm glad that I have the opportunity to hook it up for a great guy. It had some serious cracks in the floor that had been weld repaired before, And I put some large patches over them to ensure they will not be a problem in the future. I am excited about this build because the customer has high hopes and deep pockets. There was A lot of wood and old moldy foam that had to go. I am going to Paint and epoxy sealer on the bottom and then finish it off with bottom paint. Once I get that completed the real work will began installing new decks and lots of storage compartments, led lights, and hydro turf. This will be my 1st time using hydro turf and if anybody has any recommendations or pointers please feel free to advise.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Got some electrical done and fabed up the rear deck door. I also cut a hole to install a second pole mount for the front deck right behind the other one. This way he will have an adjustment to move the seat back a little bit ImageImageImageImageImage

My whole family has been extremely sick the past 2 weeks I'm just getting over it and I had a chance to make some progress today. I got floor Foam, floor plate, and the front deck fascia plate installed. I plan on finishing up the electrical by this weekend and hopefully wrapping this whole project up by the end of the 1st week in JanuaryImageImageImageImageImage

I know the kind of time, effort, expense and most of all frustration that goes into a rebuild like that.
But there's also something about taking something old and on its last legs and giving it a whole new life thats pretty rewarding.
Good work and keep it up.
