Hello to all! This is my first post and also my first boat. I brought her home last weekend and came to realize that I have a lot of work ahead of me. First I can start with a list of the negatives. Motor has a freeze plug out, seats are shot, floor is soft in the center, oxidized really bad, trailer needs new tires. Now for the plus side, I only sent a 1000.00, radio work with a low volume, motor does run and show no signs of water in the oil and I am not afraid of work.
These are my thoughts of my order of work. First off I purchased a cover as not wanting anymore water on the floors to make things worse, I removed the oxidation for the most part. Now I want to get the motor pulled and fix the freeze out plug. After that I was thinking of taking it for a few test rides to make sure the mechanical end of the boat is sound before I work on the floor. Anyone think that this will be a problem?
When I uncover the boat I will start taking some pic of the restore progress.
I want to also thank everyone that has posted their projects on here as to help guide me on how I need to tackle each issue I have. Think I have spent 20hrs on here reading and reading.
