OK here we go. This boat was a year long project. I bought it on e-bay from Wisconsin. Almost everything was there but was in bad shape. As you can see, after inspecting the floor I found the keel was completely rotten. After replacing that and installing a new floor I went on to the job of painting.

Looks like a 1973 ?
CV's had a poor drainage system and most if not all are rotted in stern.

Got it 95% complete yesterday. Complete with updated electronics, stereo and LED lighting. For the last 6 months of this rebuild I have been fighting cancer. Except for some scars the cancer is gone. She has helped me with the recovery...thus, her new name "second chances".

After viewing one of your topics I found this under the dash. I dont know how to interpret the no's. Can someone verify it is a 73?

I think that is the weekend we will be at table rock lake in Missouri but I will check. I saw a video from a year or 2 back and it looks like you guys have a blast.

OK thats what I thought but the title said 73. It makes more sense now.

Could have been built in 1972 and sold in 1973.
As long as you have a title ... all's good !

Thank you. I'm pretty happy with her. I cant wait to get her on the water. I still have a few things to do first. As far as the cancer I see every day as "bonus day" from now on.
