I can’t resist this stuff, I have a new build to work on this winter. A lot of work ahead but she will be good as new.

Colmpleted some tear down and foam removal today. I also confirmed that the transom is soft and will need replacing ...... no fun. This will be transome replacement number 3 for me.

Nice going. It's fun and easier than fishing. You can work on it without having to drag it anywhere. lol

You got some good help there!

Once the dirty teardown work is done, it starts getting fun.

Hmmmm, I think you've done this before. You guys make it look a lot easier than it is, I'm sure.

This trailor is in pretty good shape. I decided this one does not need a new paint job. I put new bunks and carpet on. I also put rubber traction pads on stepping areas. New lights and wires.

Nice work so far! I have a similar project that's been sitting in the yard for 2 years.
