Mine isn't an issue of laying straight, I think it is the original, and has seen some abuse. Gouges in it. Look through my WIP thread in the Pantera section, you'll see what I mean.
It's an old solid boat, I would expect this (maybe not this bad..) But I'm trying to bring the exterior back to close to original in rigging/style for the day. I think it's a very classic look. If you try to take a 28 year old boat, and make it look like a 3 year old boat, it never works. Plus, I'm over the bubble of being old, as opposed to being old-school. I like the look of the old-school better myself, but that's just me.
Not many guys today want the old High Cablde lifeline down the deck, but I love it!
What year is yours??
I'd be glad to dsicuss things with you about our boats.
I love mine, and haven't even seen the water yet in this one.
