For Yobata... we didn't have tyvek suits when I got my first decent job as a mate (and that old 48' "backyard boat" was in Tommy's boatyard on the Miami River). Back then (all those years ago) mates didn't get paid a penny when the boat was in the yard. If you were lucky the captain bought your lunch - but each day (for about a week as I remember...) it was sanding, painting, re-fitting - until you were trying to keep your eyes open on the way home at the end of the day... In that era chartermen were in the yard for scraping and painting every six months... I've put together a half dozen skiffs over the years and they ranged from 12' up to almost 19'... Yeah, it's a fun hobby - but back then it was also an economic necessity... In that time I've taken three un-rigged skiffs and done (or had done when I lacked the skill...) all the rigging and or re-fitting myself - with a little help from a few friends. That doesn't count an old SeaCraft that was a stolen recovery (that had been stripped and dumped - the second time for that poor owner...). I picked it up for $900, borrowed a trailer to get it to my driveway - then tore it completely apart and re-fitted it from stem to stern (every system replaced - then that old hull was water sanded by hand (by me...) to bring it back to life...). Finally a new trailer and a used motor (an Evinrude- what else?). In the meantime a real craftsman took the old center console, repaired every crack, filled every screw hole - then Awlgripped it... I made an instrument panel out of blue plexi-glass, installed a new teak door and frame, made a molded dark smoke colored sunshade out of plexi to fit over the instrument panel... As you can guess this didn't happen overnight... That same craftsman just happened to have the molds to build perfect livewell boxes that you could run wet or dry... for any SeaCraft (faired in perfectly on the bottom to match the variable deadrise bottom that those hulls were famous for...) so we added them to the finished product (and converted the existing in-floor livewell into a wet well for lines, nets, and other miscellaneous items..). The accessories (rodholders, etc.) were all done to complement the build (all rodholders, vertical and horizontal were crafted out of five quarters mahogany and got five or six coats of polyurethane each... I had 12 vertical (six on each side of the console) and 8 horizontal, four on a side. Back in those days we all used heavy gaffs and they fit up under the gunnels as well... All I can add is that I was a lot younger then... (this was around 35 years ago...). Wish I still had that SeaCraft.. Within a year or two after rigging it I was hook and lining (some days as far as 30 miles offshore - solo...) a few days a week, trying to justify the time I wanted to spend on the water.... It was sold to raise the money for the old Maverick I've been running ever since.... Aren't boats fun?
