Well here are some pics of the demo. Found a little more work then I would have liked but I will push forward.

You will see some major rot and holes that were discovered after removing all the foam.

Sorry but when I up loaded the pitures they ended up in reverse order. If you scroll from the bottom up it will make more sense.

Ok with the inside patched and water tested (with zero leaks). The main deck was mocked up so it is time to flip the boat, patch over inside patches, sand, prime, paint, and put it on the trailer.

Let me know what you think.

I will be out of town until Oct 5th archory hunting (Deer and Hog) so I will update you all further after that.

Thanks for looking

Can’t pass up the opportunity to set out in the woods in 98 degree weather getting eaten by bugs. You just never know what you might miss out on. Plus I need a break

Weather kept us from working on the boat so I started building the main switch panel. Here are a few pics to enjoy


Next will be mocking up the main deck and adding foam. Pics to follow

The boat is looking really good. =D>
Is that spray foam and marine ply? Just curious.
BTW, that is a LOT of wiring. Are most of those for lights?

The foam is 2lb 2-part closed cell pour type foam. (Not to bad to work with) I am little messy when I work so I had the stuff all over me and I must say very difficult to get off.

The ply wood is not marine it is just high grade finished ply that my helper (future Son In-Law "Carpenter") recomended. all coated, painted, and covered in grizzly grip.

The wiring oh god the wiring. Yes lots of lights front and rear flood lights, 3 sets of led deck lights, nav/anchor lights. Then the rest is for all the accessories- Stereo, 12volt outlets x2, live well, washdown, horn, trolling motors, etc.

Thanks for looking and commenting
