I don't think they did either. However there is not much storage anywhere in the boat so just trying to gain a little more, where I can.
I think this has become an addiction.

I am missing the ladder. I'm going to try and copy Joes and make a replica. I will also be adding the ski locker and the center console.

Just dropped the donor boat at the dump $120 to get rid of it. They stuck the bucket of the loader in it and I drove away pulling the trailer out from under it and home.

Always thought the way the bow was done, with platform for fuel tank was weird, but now I see what they did.
It was to get the opening for ski locker, then modified for the outboard version.

There is no support than I noticed on the deck.
Jason if you get a chance can you get me some measurements of your center console I am thinking I am going to add one.


Sorry this took so long to get done.....

Got some more work done on the boat this weekend with Kylee. Joe was over and helped me get it off the trailer and build the cradle.

In looking at the structure and design the boat lacks and real structural strength. The seats once bolted in actually become structural in my opinion. I am guessing there is a reason they only made these for 2 years.Besides it being a 16ft boat with a V8.

Sitting on the cradle with 2x6 supporting only the inner strake the hull was very flexible. I added another support to the 2nd strake and it stiffened the hull ALOT. After some discussion, I am pretty sure I will be coring the hull to add some strength and rigidity to the hull. You can see where the seat bolts have moved and oval-ed out the holes, one it completely broke. Joe had mentioned that he has even sheered a bolt off on his GT150 which has a similar hull set up. Hydrostream's have a similar size floor in the hull and their hulls were cored. I am guessing for the same reason I am going to core mine.

My plan is also to do a compete composite rebuild with no wood.

Kylee actually helped a lot. She cut/ trimmed almost all the wood out of the boat. I would start doing something and she would stop me and ask if she could do it. So I watched a lot which was fine with me.

I'm guessing I'll get to do all the grinding though. Unless someone else wants to come over and I'll watch them do that too.

Stopped at Express to talk to them about my plans and another boat builder was there as well. Got a few different opinions to think about.

PS: Express Composites moved a few blocks from their old location.

Got in about 6 hours of grinding this weekend. Only one or 2 left YAAAA.

If you look in the before picks you can see where the transom boards were not in contact with the entire transom. The outside corners had about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of filler on there. ON one side of the transom I took the air hammer and chilled off the old filler and then ground it. It definitely saved time. However you can see where it pulled loose some glass. So I will need to grind that all out now and get it back somewhat level before installing the new transom.

Will you be using the same design for platform for bow tank / ski locker ?
Or design something different ?

I'll be using the same design. However I will turn the tank so it lays fore and aft. I also plan on moving the fuel fill to the drivers side, as long as it works with what ever new tank I get. I will also be adding the center console/ ski locker.

Back from Vacation and some training in FL. I also attended the Miami boat show a couple days. If you like boats you should try to get to this show. 

I have been looking for a product to buy to bed the stringers, transom, etc to the hull. Miking cabsil and resin is no fun. Most of what I found was pretty expensive. At the show I talked to a number of different companies and found one that has a premixed bonding agent for a good price. It is essentially resin & cabsil pre mixed. I have a 5 gal bucket of it getting shipped to me. It is cheaper than a bucket of resin and bag of cab, shipping isn't cheap though.

Also got the composite boards to do the structure with and most of them are cut out already. I am hoping to get started with the the floor, transom and stringer installation in the next week of so.

Stopped at express today and my core bond showed up the other day. Going to start the rebuild process soon.

Finally getting back to working on the boat. First I made a rack to store and dispense the fiberglass from.

I will also need to fill the hole in the transom. I will be installing a Merc where the Volvo was. I got a sheet of glass and cut 4 layers of biax and wet them all out, rolled them with the fin roller to get all the air, and excess resin out.  The glass on the transom is 1/4 thick the 4 sheets of biax wetted ended up at about an 1/8. Which should be about perfect. Because that will leave room to add additional layers in the inside and outside getting larger with each layer. I just held it up to the transom and traced the shape onto it then cut it out with the jig saw.  The holes I will fill with a cabisol/ glass mix.

      How many layers will you add to the inside and outside?   2 + 2 ?   Will it be a biax like 1708, cloth, or a mix?    Has anyone tried to make a saw tooth type cut to the original cutout, then fit a patch so the length of any straight line is less than say 1.5" long.    On car stuff I've done, straight lines separating glass components were always a weak spot prone to crack.    I suppose the transom wood or equivalent prevents that?  Good to see progress.

I will add another 3-4 layers on the inside and outside until I get up to the 1/4 inch thickness. Both biax and csm. Once it is layered with the other layers of glass and the the wood/ Coosa board is added for strength I am not worried about it cracking. I filled in the hole on the 23 when I moved it up and haven't had any problems.

On my 23 I just put a couple layers of glass and then filled it with Kitty Hair filler.
