Sears 1436 Build

Very interesting. Those sponsoons blew my mind. We have bayou type conditions here. Thought it was some kind of hydrofoil at first. I commented earlier about having the exact same boat, Sears, 1969 model with the hole in bottom instead of lower rear. Mine has no HIN# because it was fabricated before...

Welding aluminum without a welder

The rods work well. I filled abot 10 rivet holes in transom, then took the boat out a few days later. Zero problems.
