I just went through and looked at a lot of rebuilds on here.I'm going to start with the trailer.Gonna get it greased up good,tear it down and paint it.Then redo the bunks and wiring if needed.I'de hate to have a done boat sitting there,then have to take it off the trailer to redo it.I've made up my mind,finally at something.lol

This is a very good choice. Once the trailer is done, you'll have the option of transporting your boat anywhere you need to.

Looks like you've got a nice boat for a project. Have fun. :D

I've been gathering all the stuff that I need for the boat.I've gotten some 48" diamond plate aluminum for the deck,some 1 1/2" aluminum angle for the deck supports.I'm trying to find the right paint for it.Made up my mind on Parker Duck Boat paint in green for inside and out.First I wanted to find a livewell to fit inside my center bench,not having to much luck,any ideas would be appreshiated.Should be some pics up Saturday night after teardown,or during teardown.I'll be working on the trailer to get it done before the boat gets worked on.
