You need to have a paid membership to directly upload pics or you can host them on a photo sharing website.

A friend of mine at LOTO has a Hawk 40. Cool old school wave crushers.

The boat sat outside for 5 years because of a knock in one motor the motors were supposed to only have a few hours on the and they were right I have pulled the motors and have them in the shop tore down. 2 cylinders on the (bad) motor don't look like they ever fired. The motors were built by someone without the knowledge to change oil. I think they just tightened the rocker till the bottomed out. The cams were new voodoo marine grind but are trash now. I have all the new parts for the motors just waiting to get them back from being bored. Also I drained 75+ gallons of fuel out. I have ordered new impeller kits for the raw water pumps and have cleaned the bilge. The boat was painted right before the motor started knocking but faded really bad so I got interlux brightside paint and am going to try out the roll and tipping method I just need some warm weather. I have cleaned, sanded, and refinished the teak flooring and removed the windshield, polished the frame and had the glass tinted at a local shop. All of this and I have only had the boat 2 weeks and I work full time so I haven't slept a whole lots haha.

Looks like you upgraded to a Gold Membership so you should be able to post pics directly now.
Here is a thread with some hints/troubleshooting about attaching pics.

Looks like a cool project. Sounds like you've already done a lot in a short time.
