Yes, "a bit." When I get the floor done, I may run it this summer to have some fun and to get a sense of how the boat rides before I tackle the aesthetics.

" Seems like a sure way to take the fun out of a great hobby."

LOL. That's what I tell people about old house restoration all the time when they suggest I make it a career. I suspect I'll feel the same when I get to work on my Seafair.

You are doing awesome work. Love how you are getting to the underside...just goes to show, where there's a will there's a way.

Hello David,


Came across these shots of a Delmar restoration to help inspire.


She looks happy.


A couple in FL did the work a few years back.


They put on an awesome paint job.




And she still looks happy.


Modern power and all ready for a day on the lake.


I'd bet that cooler holds some icy cold Yuenglings.

Thanks
Terry

Got two panels of 9mm okoume plywood on the inside of the cockpit. Removing what was left of the old panels was very difficult.
