Finished sewing and stapling. Things are bolted up and hinges are working good. Just need to do the interior side panels and captains seats.

This boat needs to be buffed out, its got oxidation but not bad enough for wet sanding IMHO, so I'm looking for somebody that does this and has the equipment and knowledge.

Initially, I was just going to replace the wood backer and reuse the existing vinyl for the padded side panels, but, since tge new fabric doesn't quite match the old I completely rebuilt them. Its hard to see, but there is piping around them, I took it off the old ones and reused it. It gave it a much needed cleaner and more finished look.



Completed rear bench seat or couch and sun deck. I will eventually tale the sundeck back off, there are a couple things I need to change, I need more foam in front and the vinyl needs to be pulled tighter and re-stapled. And I'll be adding some angled or curved bolsters on each side to make it look cleaner, a better finished look (its almost to square looking).


My Craigslist score. Not an exact match in color but a pair of captains brand new still in the box with manufactures tags still dangling from them. There is some glue or something of the like on one of them, so the seller came down to 150 for the pair. I feel they are worth it and are close enough in color for an 18 year old boat. Now I need to find one more pedestal by tomorrow so I can mount the other one.

Funny, after looking at the last pic, the new chairs are a perfect match for the original interior colors. Just look at the seat face in the bow.

So I ended tonight with the drive maintenance. Unfortunately, I got the wrong impellor, but the bellows and CV and gimble all look good enough to get through this year.

Are you sure that's the wrong impeller? That's about how mine looked with the difference between new and used. You need to lube it up a bit and spin it into the housing. Damn near all mercruisers use the same size

I looked up the part numbers and they gave me a Gen II impeller, I have a Gen I drive.

Made it! I'm still not completely happy with the looks of the sundeck, I'm going to take it back off and re-do the front of it to make it more rounded and sloped instead of bring so square. And, I need to figure out a latch of some sort for it also.

The baby part definitely makes this a little more challenging. We're trying to get her to nap right now. LOL

The Chap didn’t see the water last year. We decided to trade the lake for s But somewhat settled and the weather is right and we wanted to get back in the water with the kids.
When I winterized and put the boat in storage I noticed the lag bolts on one of the motor mounts was loose and knew I had to look into the issue.
I supported motor, removed mount, and cut open the area for the motor mount. ROT!!

Usually this would be a stringer problem. But the way this boat was made, the stringers were glasses in first, and are too wide for the motor mounts. So then additional blocks were glasses in for the motor options. I have a 4.3, but I’ve also seen 305’s and 302’s on this same boat. After I cleaned out this box of all the rotten wood I could hammer the stringer and everything is solid.
I had some good old treated 4x6 I cut into shape to match the bottom contour of boat and started glassing it back in.
Now just waiting for it to cure before putting mount back together and doing an alignment on stern drive
