I do it all, I have a sense of security knowing its done right, if by chance its not done right I know how to correct

Woody is so bad that he buys boats and then strips the rigging and rigs it again with different stuff.

I do almost all of my own work. I leave drive upgrades / repairs to the experts.

I have to do it all, around here they won't touch a boat like mine. But I don't mind that way I know it's done right or I only have myself to blame.

Do everything so far, including some drive and motor work. I like it and enjoy it, I have messed with all types of mechanical things and never owned a boat so that is 1/2 the fun. Know what I can't do though so no paint or gel coat in my future. Painted a couple things in my life and they all looked substandard in my view. Plus another bonus besides the $$ or own work is that I am very picky on stuff and my dad used to say "nobody loves anything as much as its owner" and I find that very true.

I work on breaking it and leave fixing it to the pros....actually I do tend to tinker with alot of stuff on the boat but leave motor and drive work to someone else...especially when warrenties are involved.

Could not afford not to. It also allows me to know it was done right the first time and if not I know who to blame




















The other half
