Trying to figure out logistics...but want to!! May have to hitch a ride on Robbie's....
I got confused there for a sec... Robbie you gonna do Lake Norman?... Im down with Memorial day, just hoprfully get the johnnyrude running by then, got the first fuel pump fixed, going a head and rebuilding the second one also, 33 years its probably due...still running very rich, so might be carb rebuild time, hopefully it will clear up when I rebuild the other pump...since it seems to be evenly rich on all cylinders, kinda rules out sinking float or bad needle and seat....
Ahhh Thanks to Robbie and Brian(CMpulse170 and yellowfiero88) time to revive the thread,since their constant working on the boats is rubbing off on me...lol... actually planned this for this winter but... The boat hasn't seen much work...in a while... so time to dig into it again...now the floors... with the new job I travel tons, so hopefully I will remain semi close the next couple of weeks to get this done by boating weather here in a couple months. Hopefully the transom still looks good when I get in there, it looked great when I looked at it before I painted, but now I will be able to get in there for a closer look... I want to use space age composites for the floor and stringer.. its like coosa form my understanding but uses a stainless steel mesh vs fiber, for more strength, according to them i can use a 1/2" for the floor and be plenty strong. I also decided to use them because well, I get a huge discount...for those who don't know my fathers company is in the marine industry, and uses their product from time to time, so he gets a manufacturing discount...there is even talk of getting it under sample status aka free...Ill take it! Lets see other ideas that people can feed back on... blue carpet for floor, black on sides...white seats undecided on piping or stripes, plans to buy the captains chairs, and attempt the others myself, so simple is better...I am planning white because colors just get so hot! Rear seat is going to be U shaped with the outside semi lounge type, undecided on the front seat/seats originally it was a bench style base with two backs...that seems a little weird to me but simple, I may just do the two separate seats...today begins derigging, fuel tank removal, etc etc.. tomorrow hopefully plan to start tearing the floor out....
