Upholstery needed to be done. I got video of it running. It's a 454 Mag, rebuilt with upgrades.
Had a 251 before and really like the boat, and the price was right.
Well, it's been two years. Stringers were rotten and wet all the way forward.
Transom surprisingly is solid and dry.
So at this point, stringers and floors are all new. New fuel tank as the old was pitted real bad. Rebuilt engine again as I found 2 dead cylinders. Valves where a mess. Looked to have been overheated.
But getting there. Upholstery is next. Maybe see water this summer.
I will have way more into it than it will ever be worth. But it's what I want.
It is definitely takes time. We are doing everything we can to get this thing going by the end of summer but also not trying to skip anything important. That sounds like a great project, have you made a post with pictures? If you have please attach a link.

Sanding and buffing of boat is coming along nicely. They are moving it outside next week to do the sides, back, and bottom.

Gauge panels are going to be carbon fiber from livorsi but I cut some out of metal just seeing what gauge placement will be like. Final shape is not going to be what is in that pic. Trying to figure out what to do. Tabs, drives and steering all fit up and coming back off for gelcoat in engine bay and buffing rear area.

Added some areas on side to be able to mount pumps for steering, tabs and drives amongst other things.

I hate when the pictures show up flipped. I'll fix when I get to a computer.

Here are some updated pics. Bilge is painted and the black and yellow splatter done.

Got the trim sync module for the drives. Interested to see how good that works.

Boat has been buffed and buffed again to get the gel back to original. Still waiting on parts to come. Motors arent quite finished yet either. Gauge panel has been ordered but havent ordered throttles yet.

Hopefully these pics dont post sideways.

The pictures dont really do it justice. There was probably 50 or more cracks that were repaired in the gel. There is not a single scratch or crack on the exterior or interior now.
