Smeared some paint on tonight. Oil based enamel with hardener. Applied with a foam roller because one color overspray in my garage is enough for a lifetime of kicking my own butt! Put the propane heater under the boat and the paint was dry to the touch by the time I got all the way around. So I went around again.

Whittled some wood into seat boards. Test fit before spar varnish.

Put a coat of stain on the boards. Sealing to follow.

Picked up this ugly motor tonight. It’s a non runner. Good compression and spark is blue. Drips gas out the carb so I’ll start there.

Wasn’t the carb, although it needed cleaning. Factory coils are pooched. Will order new ones when I sell some firewood.

Put a coat of silver on the floatation boxes last night. Hope to get seats mounted soon.

Seats in. Getting close to completion. I want to put a couple handles on the transom and a couple more bolts through the transom board. Will put another coat of spar urethane on the seats to cover the screws.

Will you post some pics of your paint job on the outside? I have a 12' Ward as well I'm looking to start rebuilding this summer and am scratching my head for some ideas. Looking good!

I pronounce this boat done! Lol. Well almost. Still working on the motor and I want to pick up a couple handles for the transom but it’s time to get it out of the garage to make room for other projects.

Thanks. Going to plop it in the water today and see how bad it leaks.

Maiden voyage was a success. Boat didn’t leak and handles great. Should be perfect for it’s intended purpose.

Nice job. It's easy to forget just how beautiful and practical a simple boat can be.... A snapshot from a time before the 1000 lb carpeted monster...
