Well guys. Here ya go. I don't know much about the boat yet. I picked it up on Saturday and only spent about an hour looking it over. I immediately removed the steering console, and the seats pictured. The seats are in pretty good shape, so I will hold on to them. If anyone has a use for the steering cable/console, you can have it if you'll come get it. The seats were screwed down to livewell lids. I will post more pics the next time I can get out there and do some work. The decks are pretty solid, but I'm replacing them anyway, #1 because I'm fairly anal, and #2 they will probably both get extended. I would really like to get this thing entirely stripped down, take it to the lake, check for leaks, and start from there. I've never done this before, but I've been thinking about this for about 2 years now. I am really glad to finally get this project started. The little man in one of those pictures is one of the main reasons I'm doing this. I have 2 small boys, and if you saw the picture of my current rig, you probably understand that it would be very difficult to have a 5 and 7 year old in that boat with me. The new boat should help that a lot, and outside of tournament fishing, I am really looking forward to spending time on the water with them.

Lemme know what you think of the new tin cup. I will do my best to post pictures of the progress. If anyone has any advice along the way, don't be afraid to offer it. I will probably be asking questions throughout the build.

Awesome rig... you're going to have fun with that rebuild.

I almost bout the exact boat back in the summer from a guy in Hiram - but he decided not to sell when I showed up with the money.

Do you have an outboard or are you doing electric only?

Thanks for your compliment.

Electric only for 80% of the time. We fish some of the state parks, so I will keep my eyes open for a 9.9 tho. I have a 5hp and a 15hp already. Might try to sell them both, or work a trade for a 9.9.

instead of taking it to the lake to see if there are any leaks, risking it sinking. fill it with water and look for the leaks. i did this to mine and it worked awesome. found a lot of little leaks that i couldn't locate on the water. it will give you the ability to see under the boat. good luck.

Ok. Sounds good. The previous owner said "doesn't leak a drop", so I would just like to make sure for my piece of mind. I was wondering about putting it in the lake after everything had been taken out and whether or not that was the right thing to do. Ideally, I would think you would want the boat to have a load inside to push out on the hull to be certain. I guess filling it with water will serve that purpose as well. Thanks!

Thanks. I'm in Gwinnett County, close to Bass Pro Shops in Lawrenceville. No, I don't want the console. This rig will be set up for electric only lakes. If you want it, you can have it. I don't want it laying around much longer.
