the above pic is one of the first pics i ever took of the old girl your a typical boat with a rotton floor cracked seats and basically everything wood on it rotten out. we got it for free and when my dad brought it home i almost told him to roll it off a big hill and forget about it. But after a couple of hours we had the motor running and decided it would be worth the effort to fix. so i scraped the 2 inches of mold off the floor and it just went from there. The boat had sat outside for 12 years uncovered and it was a one onwner boat me being the second.
so the first thing we did is new floor this was done back in 97 i got the boat in 96 and have been slowly fixing it ever since and now it is all done but ill start from the begining

the following winter came new front seats. This was a tough one since there was hardly anything left of the old wood to go from. so we had to make our own pattern

so i got the front seats done that winter and had a blast the following summer but of corse you cant make it thru a season with out something going wrong well that summer the rubber on the coupler that bolts to the flyweel went out because the motor mount had rotted thru and the front of the engine droped about 3 inches causing it to bind up and eventually give out.
