Hey Bud. Welcome to the forum . If your serious about the rebuild I would do something similar to what I did to mine but just be prepared for a lot of work. You may be better off buying another hull that's laid up correctly unlike the midlands . That rebuild on the HT is mine. It was a shit load of work, money, and time. But if you wanna do it get the saw out and start tearing it up as start fresh. The things I would have done different is making sure the weep holes in the stringers were large enough , I would have added a little more of a pitch to the deck( right now water collects on fwd stbd side), and I would raise scuppers a bit. I don't know what you have for power but I went to a 70 Johnson from a 115 and it goes along find at about 18kts. Good luck and don't cheap out on pictures for us!
There is one for sale on Long Island Craigslist for $1200 w trailer..
