Can the hook in this boat be fixed? It's not mine, just wanna know if it would be worth fixing? Also I've never rebuilt a boat buy "yet" but I wanna ask the guy who did this what he was thinking?

that thing is junk !!

what was he thinking ?? not a clue bro...

i've seen some poor jobs,but that's pretty bad...

i often ask,what people were thinkin' - it often gets me in trouble when i ask,or point out clear examples of poor work -
people often believe their abilities far exceed what they really are - clearly,the gentleman who attempted this "repair",he suffered from that...

on another site i recently signed up on,there's jobs and "projects" people have done,and actually shown pictures of,that make that job look beautiful - i kid you not...scary stuff - but funny !!

If your looking at the 3rd pic down and judging the "hook" in the hull. You are mistaken, its just the lines of the boat that give it that illusion. Now as for the last pic... That thing is twisted like oh my god!

it is twisted,looking at the pictures - it appears the transm was actually cut out of the boat - this is probably where that twist came from...

junk...

There is a crack in the bow where the rub rail should go, because its twisted so bad! I know it's fixable but what the Process in doing so....not including building a new transom skin?

Ok, if someone is willing to take on this project then the rest of us micro skiffers can come together donate something like a gal of resin, matt, sand paper or even time to do repairs, ect.. and rebuild this old timer. Then we as a group could do something good and donate it to a worthy cause like
Takes a Veteran fishing or the wounded warrior project, fishing for kids, or something like that. Tom the Moderator can be in charge of it.

What do you think?

that was excellent advice - to bad you picked a bad place to take the engine...

wasn't that the motor,you made the claim you were "rebuilding it" ?? in reality,you were ceaning the carb and repalcing thermostats... same motor you found after alot of throwing parts at it,the powerhead was damaged -blown ?


but i did notice you asked for help on  few sites - also recall you needing some one to get a bolt out you broke ?? ::)

I chose one of the best mechanics in east central Florida and he commended me, so ill take your chiding with a grain of salt.

And yes, I did shear a seized bolt. But it's all good now ;)
