Nothing really to brag about.
Picked this up a little while ago and had expected to have a few days of minor repairs and then to use it in the SF Bay and local waters. But the more I looked the less I liked and it has turned into a "rebuild" rather than a repair.
First up is the transom
Inside pic, top of pic is the splash well
Then bolted on is a 1/4" thick piece of angle iron
exposed plywood of the transom
aluminum u-channel w/flanges bolted thru the transom (think this is OEM)
After removing all the bolts/screws/Trans cap... last was the serial # plate
How would you like 60 horses attached to that
Some marine ply
Fitting 3/16" aluminum plate over the 1/8" OEM plate
All fasteners replaced with stainless steel.
As you can see I've already removed all the decking and in the process of cleaning the inside of the hull. Leaning towards old school vinyl to cover the deck. Like how it is easy to clean fish blood etcetera.
