Here is the thing when it comes to talent and capability I’ll look comes down to is how much time you wanna put into it and Research research I am not a professional at any of these things but through some research guidance and the whole Lotta patience you can do any of this some basic handtools a good air compressor and sometime you can do any of these tasks there is so much information online nowadays and once you learn the mix ratios with a cheap harbor freight scale your good to go. My buddy is working on his cafe in his driveway under a tent lol. He’s doing stringers and stuff .the biggest thing this project has taught me is patience. I have had things come up in life and work all through the build as we all do but I’ve learned not to hurry the project along. I work on when I have time and money. And slower it’s getting there. I have learned to not cut corners and eventually it will be done I encourage anyone to tackle projects if they have the desire and time!!!!!

I'm going document as much as I can I put this boat together and ran it for 3 seasons xt did a great job on the interior and cabin. just realized in the end of July the transom is rotted as we had a water leak. so on to winter projects just getting a early start lol. I had all the new billet handles made when we did interior and try to update as much as we could with modern power plants and keep it reliable. boat ran a best of 83.3 this year its a light lay up boat and motors have had a few things done to them. let the projects begin...…...

I was able to do some updating and make it work with the paint job. hoping to be done early this year with projects and maybe hit the water on time for once always seems to be late June by the time were ready every season so I was hoping if I started early id make it next season lol
