Thank you!!I hear you man!! This stuff is not really time consuming, the re-rigging and putting it all back together is going to be crazy! I hope to be in the water May or June.

lol! For real who needs a sink on the water lol!! Bring some hand sanitizer if you really need it!

I love everyone's restorations threads also! It does keep me moving when I see yours and all the other threads! Good luck with the move! I do as much as I can in the garage then head to the driveway when it is nice outside! I wish I had a garage big enough to fit the boat in! Not sure how long I will be stationed here so don't want to buy another place yet (the wife and I have two rentals in MI).

I don't do any sewing. Side panels and carpet are easy. My first post has the link to my photobucket from work done a few years ago. I did all the wood and purchased the vinyl but I had a local company sew the covers and then I put them on. I have been using the same vinyl this year and need to find a local company here to sew the sunpad in the next few months.

Got some more work done I took this week off of work since weather was nice!

The new to me transom assembly had the wires for the trim senders cut since he didn't need them, my boat needs them and I was able to just pull the hinge pins and get access to the bolt and replace them with some "pull string".

Then I got everything put back on the transom and the new transducer in.

I haven't posted in a bit so here are some updates. If it stops raining this weekend I will get some pics of the inside of the boat, I got some re-rigging done last weekend. I got my CP order this week so I finished the new dash/switch panels and the rear seat base ready for install, and the engine is ready to go back in. I made the dash panels out of plexiglass and covered them in white 3M Di-Noc, and used BEP Marine switches on the switch panel. Those are really clean nice switches.

So here is where I'm at now. Didn't work on it as much as I wanted to the last few weeks due to either weather, work, or honey do list. I wanted to get some work done tonight and it started to rain as soon as I took the cover off to get these pictures. Got it mostly re-rigged, cabin interior back in, etc. I put some vinyl cord around the hatch blocks so I hope the edges of the hatch don't get beat up as bad again. I took a few days off of work next week so I can drop the engine in and get more done.
