Gus has decided it's time to restore his mate. He has sent me some pics as he is progressing..here are the first few. I'll let him tell you the stories about all the cuts and bruises not to mention the tools he throws.

I bought this boat in June of this year. Learned a few lessons alone the way.
The boat came with a 1978 1750 merc. 2.0L. Before I learned that ya need to do a compression test on an outboard prior to buying the darn thing.
Anyway the 175 was running but had a miss. A little troubleshooting and I found a leaking head gasket on one side and a burt piston on the other. Took the engine to a builder and found out that he could rebuild the 175 but would not stand behind it. The eary motors had some trouoble. Option 2 was he would build a 2.4 200hp for a little more money. The new powerhead was built and along the way he also installed soild mount's, removed the can and drystacked the exhaust, installed a set of mod VP carbs, and the light weight plactic cowl, as the 3 peice would not fit.

The boat had not been used for about 2 years, it was stored indoors, (a nice dry place). The prior owner had the interior redone and the boat painted about 5 years ago. I thumped and jumped and tryed to move the transom. No luck, the boat was solid (so I thought).
After running the boat all summer, I was starting to get movement in the transom, and soft spots in the floor. I pulled the carpet up and found the interior floor was redone with partical board. Now a wet mush. Had water comming in through the transom.
So as you can see the restoration has started.
Currently all the rotted wood is removed, The hull has been split and the deck slid forward so I can work on the transom.
Will be adding new stringers and support knees to the new transom. All interior parts will get new backings. Target completion date is mid april.
