Hello to everyone. I know this isn't a "tin" boat, but i did notice that you had a few glass boats on here so i thought i would join in. I really like the forums and everyones mods. I have gotten lots of great ideas from here and plan on using them for my rebuild/mod.
Here is my 13 Ft glass boat that i am currently rebuilding ( i have been researching for about 2 weeks, and still can't get a definitive answer on what kind of boat this is)
I bought it cheap everything except the insides was good. 40hp Johnson runs like a charm.
When i got it, the decking was rotted, so i tore it out only to notice that the decking support also had not been water treated either, so i decided to rip everything out.
And just as i figured the sub-flooring and even the one stringer and ribs were water logged.
Here is a picture of the old decking
Here you can see where mold had started to grow
All of the decking has been removed

Old Front Deck
Old Rear Deck
We will just skip all the destruction, here is the fiberglass floor that was exposed
Removing Fiberglass floor
Here is a starboard view once i got the fiberglass floor out
the starboard bow
the bow with storage
transom and motor
and here is the rotted sub-floor
Breaking through the rotted sub-floor
The stringers and ribs (or should i say RIB) is just in place so i can reference their position and use them as a template for the new ones.
I will start installing the new stringers and sub-floor on Monday and will post more pics then.
