Looks like a serious project, but with Corona, everyone has plenty of time.

Good luck...

Some updated pictures of glassing the transom in place. Got to the point that it floats and keeps water out. Had to make a test run to try out the 15 horse I picked up and finally got the registration for. With no seats and the front platform not really attached to anything the boat has a lot of flex. When I get some money going to lay some additional glass on the floor and tie it into the sides of the boat as well. Then stringers and a floor will be added which should give the boat the rigidity it needs.

Next up is getting to work laying down some extra glass on the floor and then glassing in the stringers. With the seats removed the hull has a lot of flex. So this should give it some strength/rigidity and allow me to have a flat floor

No real updates just been using the boat. Slapped some plywood down to see how it felt and I was not a fan of how high the floor was in the boat. Going a different direction with the stringers/floor. Also picked up what will be the permanent power plant 1958 evinrude 35 horse with electric start.
