    Nice shed, plenty of space in there to get it done. Good luck with it, so far looking good.

    You are off to a good start. I cannot wait to see the transformation. What are you going to do with the windows?

    HI Moriches27

    What does the boat look like now? Did you move construction to another thread?

    Tash, things have been slow due to other things in life also it's really fkn hot in my boat shed in the summer. I went through the engine and replaced all the accessories and I'm almost done epoxy coating the bilge. My buddy gave me a furnace for this winter and I have about 10 of my good friends that are all carpenters and want this boat in next season getn tuna. I have all the materials except the windows so when I really start chipping at it again your gonna see the pics in this post and the other one I have that has the pics from demo on day 1.

    Almost a year. Occasionally wondering how this old girl is coming along.
    Any update moriches?
    I am a sucker for a project boat or motorcycle so was just wondering.

    I'm still chipping away at it. pretty much re did everything in the engine compartment and made everything so much easier to maintain it. when I say I redid it, I went through everything mechanically besides rebuilding the block. I'm kinda a freak when I do things, everythings gotta be my way and perfect. that's one of the reasons its taking so long. ill take some pics and post soon
