1980's Sea Nymph GLS 19.5

I like those boats. There's so much that can be done with them. You're getting a good start at the worst part of the job. Lol. Just make sure to put foam back in and don't use pool noodles for foam.

What are your plans for the rebuild?

1960’s 16’ Aluminum V-hull Mystery Boat Build

I just bought a 16’ (15’ 8”) aluminum V hull with a 1965 Johnson 33 on the transom. I’ve already torn out the old floor and seats and am planning on putting a new floor in, time will tell whether I shell out the money for an aluminum floor or if I end up going with treated plywood like I usually do...

1988 Alumacraft Pro17 - needs pretty much everything

Great platform to build from. I'm keeping my eye out for something like this. I've done a 14ft boat and I'm gonna redo it if I don't find a nice boat like this over the winter. I like the idea of the open floor plan for trolling. My plans would be similar but I would probably build a removable rear ...

You can add places to attach a deck to. By doing this you can easily replace any structural integrity for when you remove the bench.

79’ Alumacraft Lunker 16

That's a great boat to start with. Best way to pinpoint leaks is to put about 3 inches of water in the boat and get under it and watch for leaks. You'll not only know if it leaks/how bad but also where from. If any rivets are leaking don't just try to seal them. Tighten (buck) them first then seal e...

Welcome aboard. Sounds like an interesting project. Can't help you on the prop question but I look forward to seeing your pics and watching the build.

Gluvit with no bottom paint?

Yep, Gluvit is for the inside of the boat. Just have to coat seams and rivets.

1993 Sea Nymph 16 ft vee

Thanks. I'm using 6mm (.240") aluminum composite panels for the livewell and storage and the floors. Years ago we spent a summer working all around Oklahoma back when we had a textile industry. Good memories. Forgot to say I used a lot of 5200 marine adhesive in and around the corners of the livewe...

V Boat Extension

No experience doing it and never seen it done but it would be cool. Usually longer boats are also wider so that would be a challenge. There is a guy here that widened his boat but never seen one extended. I'm sure it's possible though.

Nice boat. Something like that will be my next build. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Gluvit with no bottom paint?

Gluvit works fine on aluminum boats. The guys that restore old aluminum boats on another site use it all the time. Unless it's going to be exposed to the sun UV rays aren't an issue. I've used steel flex and it's ok. I wasn't impressed by the pigment, it faded pretty quick. You must get every area ...

1973 16' Crestliner V-hull Project

There’s no question about the benefits of aluminum for the sake of durability. That being said, I like boat building so I’m sure that by the time this wood wears out I’ll be ready to rebuild it anyways. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I'm with you there. I like boat building and wood working so ...
