    Project Boat

    If one is looking for a project this could be right up your alley. Probably not for the faint of heart though. Jim

    Some people should never:

    .... go to the local hardware store for plumbing parts and then plan to do the work themselves.
    .... buy expensive material and then plan to build their own kitchen cabinets.
    .... attempt to do their own piano tuning.
    .... go to the local hardware store for electrical parts and then plan to do the work themselves.
    .... go to the electronics parts store and then attempt to repair the circuit board in their plasma television.
    .... attempt to Turbo Charge their computer.
    .... attempt to build their own Lunar Lander.
    .... attempt to install braces on their child's teeth.
    .... build their own wooden bows for a cockpit and flybridge enclosure.




    Some of those old Fiberform boats were nice boats.
    What a shame to see all of those fasteners randomly penetrating the fiberglass.

      So it's a Carver the listing says it's a Fiberform. I'm with you on someone being an idiot. It's a nice design although it would be a bitch to get the engines in and out. the rest would be a piece of cake especially if it was in your back yard. You'd have to buy System 3 by the barrel. It would also be interesting limping back to the lower 48 on one engine if it runs. Oh the possibilities Jim

        Jim, that was my mistake..... yes, it is a Fiberform.
        I was able to edit my post and correct it.
