What kind of paint did you use for the inside and outside? Thanks, I FINALLY finished doing all my carpetting, I'll post pics soon.
Living proof that anyone can, if they just try.
If you don't see me here, I might just be out on Visitation!

The previous owner painted the boat using single stage automotive paint.

PBW, have you had any issues with corrosion from the strong ties touching the ribs? I plan to do the same thing but am getting mixed suggestions, all are appreciated but would like to here first hand from someone with the setup

PBW,
I just saw your thread man and had to check it out when I realized you were from L'ville!! Then you start talking about McNeely Lake and I grew up right around there. Grew up on Zenith way off of the Outer Loop right by Hi-Li swim club (if it's still called that) and I used to ride my bike out to McNeely all the time. (Also spent some time observing the submarine races out there too. :lol: [-X :lol: ) I'll be up in Louisville for Easter - maybe we could hook up and go fishing? Your boat turned out awesome man. Very sweet and excellent craftsmanship.

Mike

No issues yet, just today I got the boat out from under the back porch and took the two tarps off(ITS A TARRRRPPP!!!!!!!!!!)! Everything looks great still. I can post pics of it if you wish! Last fishing trip of 08 it took a hard rain on me while I was fishing all the wood and ties.

pbw,

Do you still have your TM mounted that way? It seems like it would be easy to break something with it up in the stowed postion if you were to hit a boat dock or something. I am looking for feedback on a build I will be doing soon.

Thanks

Its the worst mounting position ever when stored. Some how it got over the trailer rear pole while unload in choppy water. My trailer license plate looked like a hard taco bell taco shell..I'm going to move it soon.

Sorry...but thanks for the info. Didn't think about getting on and off the trailer with it sticking out like that. Yes, I would end up snatching the whole motor off my deck I think.

It's OK pbw, we got up there, had our fun and came on home. I would like to go some time though if I get up there other than at Thanksgiving and Easter, which are my usual times for coming up. But I'd love to if I can spare the time!
