Is that the original throttle control? It looks like somebody bolted a toaster to the gunnel. The boat will be beautiful when you're done. Any plans for the trailer...new or restore?

It's not original...the boat was rigged with tripples at first. The shifter/throttles are Kiekaefers mounted in an aircraft quality aluminum box. The box needs to be polished out...it's on my list of to do's!

The gelcoat is in very good shape. There are a few minor scratches/chips that will be repaired. The black deck stripes need to be wheeled out and the dash will need a good waxing!

Yesterday was the first real day of working on the boat. I gutted the cabin with my wife's help. Carpet, headliner, cabinets, shelves, counter, seats, etc. all removed. We must've removed 300+ pounds out of the boat!

Here's the gutted cabin. It will recieve new padded vinyl headliner, new flooring/carpet/not sure yet??. The seats will be recovered with white vinyl/red piping. Only the bulkheads and port galley will be reinstalled once refinished. I'm not going to put up the cabinets or V-birth shelves.
