Hello everyone. This project has taken me 3 years, and I finally have it on the water. Throughout the past few years I have learned a lot from all of you on your projects and questions I had answered by other members. Thank you all...I had a lot of help from my friends, invested quite a bit of time and money, but refurbishing this thing to keep in our family is priceless. I hope you guys like what you see. Don't mind all the pics being out of order. User error on my part.


File comment: One of the pieces fin on the inside and one on the outside. Used 100% silicone between the pieces and through bolted with SS carriage bolts.

File comment: Built a clam system for the 1 1/2" Aluminum tubing I used for the gunnel cap. We cut a channel down the center of it so it could fit over the top of the boat could slip inside.

File comment: Got all the paint out and welded all the holes from years of pops adding accessories

File comment: Here is what she looked like when I brought her home. My grandfather took the center console out somewhere along the road and painted it at least 5 times with oil based paint that did not like coming off.

First Bass caught on the boat in Ca Delta. First trout in the Sierras, and all around good time for my family and friends.


File comment: Everyone needs to have a friend names Worm. All in all I am pretty stoked with the boat. It does 25mph and planes out nicely.

Thanks Jim. I really appreciate it. And I am very proud. I do construction for a living but building boats is another story. Turned out better than I ever thought it would.

Thank you. Did a lot of research into getting that part done. Originally it had wood, but over the years it rotted and my grandfather put PVC on there but the boat was extremely flimsy.

I apologize for the extremely late responses. It's been a busy family life with new baby and working on changing careers.

As for the console I bought it pre-made. Here is a link to a website that sells them.
