Default Magnum Sedan Outboard

I've finally decided to post some pictures of my Magnum sedan that I rebuilt a couple of years ago. My dad had bought the boat in 2008 for the trailer that it was on, and then we ended up storing it until 2016. My dad rebuilt one in the 80's and put twin 200 mercs on it and my brother rebuilt one about 10 years ago with 2 250 Yamahas on it. So it was my turn to continue the tradition. After the last two we had a good idea of what we wanted in this one. We decided to use a hydraulic bracket made by Porta-Products and we also had a low-profile plexiglass windshield custom made. It took us about 5 months to complete, and it was a challenge but it was definitely worth it. I am going to attempt to upload pictures but I've had problems in the past with them not showing up so feel free to let me know if they aren't there.

Great job you should be proud of your accomplishment!!......but In my opinion, there is however a weak point that should be addressed in the sedan concerning the hull/deck marriage.
If you haven't done it already, I recommend glassing the hull/deck seam with a course of 1708 (preferably the bow) you did replace the rub rail so you know how superficial that bond is.
God forbid if you ever stuff the bow that hull/deck joint will not hold up and could cause serious injury or death........it's happened before to a twin ob sedan and the latter occurred.

Scippy, thanks for the positive feedback. I agree that their is an issue with the sedans when the caps was bonded to the hull. I had to replace the bulkhead in the bow of the boat and when I re-glassed it I also glassed the cap to the hull. As you also mentioned, when we did the rub rail we re-drilled the entire hull and also used 5200 on each of the screws.

That is an amazing looking boat, and an excellent job bringing it back to life.

I remember when this sedan was for sale a few years ago, it looked good back then. I would have bought it but I found my sedan close by.

One of my friends in Florida sent this pic as they know I like sedans, I guess this one is also in your family's collection.

Thats funny. The boat was in decent condition when we first bought it but we let it sit in a field for around 8 years and it went downhill quickly.
