No much to look at still. Tore out what was left of the wet and rotted transom wood, it is in an aluminum sandwich. Tore out the floatations foam as it was wet and heavy and rotting.

Didn't get much boat work done had to get lawn ready for fall. I did install new trailer bunk boards and rollers and ordered new wheel bearings. Need to get some new trailer tires.

Goal this week is to get trailer all ready and prepare boat for epoxy paint.

Update for today:
I was thinking about my new bunk boats and I made a mistake. Used pressures treated lumber, so I had to redo them. Finished those up today and took off wheel bearing for inspection and they all need to be replaced so I ordered those, should be here, Friday. Did some test sanding with steel wool looks pretty good think I will repaint the areas painted from factory and just steel wood sand the unpainted areas.

Are you planning on putting carpet or something on your new guide on bunks? Can't really see what type of bolts you use to hold them on with, but if head of bolt sticks out any can rub against side of boat.

Replaced wheel bearings but dust caps didn't show so waiting on those. Worked on closing up unneeded holes in transom. I feel like zero progress is being made.

I ordered resin from US Composites should be here next week to seal the transom wood and decking, need to get those pieces ready.

Waiting on primer and paint, UPS says shipment is delayed until Wednesday.

Your boy will never forget this. And neither will you.

They only grow up once.

Great job
