Default 1975 Vmate restoration

He is the new project . The little 14 foot will be put on hold till I finish with this boat . I was looking for the Checkmate trim tabs and the checkmate bucket seats and a different trailer I just happend to find everything and a boat came with it . For the 200.00 I paid for it all was well worth it the hull itself is very soild . Transom will be replaced and also the floor . I left the boat up at the lake house but brought the buckets home so I can dig the old wood off the bottom and glass in a new piece . But with in the next few weeks ill have her here at home and the restoration will begin .

I started removing the old wood off one of the bucket seats . Figured since I didnt bring the boat back home I would atleast bring the seats home so I could get something done . The glass looks really good still . Here is a few pictures of the progress so far

I have another 150hp inline Six out in the garage that I am going to hang on the back . It will serve a better purpose on the back of this little 15 ft than on my garage floor lol .

Nice looking boat you have there Will. I can't wait to see what you do with it. Are you planning on new transom, deck and stringers?
