Great project!! Keep up the work! I hear you guys on the splatter paint, lol. Next time I pull my engine I will be painting over that.

I found that " Super Clean" sold at O'reillys auto parts actually softens that splatter paint when I was cleaning the grime out of both my Kachina and my Eliminator. If this weather stays dry I will be able to get back to work on this thing. Randy

Default More Floor Away

[ATTACH=CONFIG]502455[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502456[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502457[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502458[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502459[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502460[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502461[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502462[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]502463[/ATTACH]My new roto zippy tool made mince meat of the glass holding the floor down. Even though the floor wasn't "bad" I am glad I decided to look under it. The drain skupper things moulded into the steps were not very well thought out & are plugged up holding water. I made as it looks quite a bit more work but at least I will know what is under me. I will have to cleanup these drains & reshape the matt in the center so water will drain correctly. I am glad to see another stringer in there, I was kind of nervous about being able to tie everything back together. Randy

How's the progress coming along Randy? Everything looks good in the pictures. Now that I look again maybe you should just drop that power plant in now. Look at the weight savings! Plus it looks like you have a beer holder intact yet! Find yourself a lawn chair and you're good to go!

Oh man...take it easy on yourself. Hope you get better soon. I couldn't keep myself out of the boating scene long come to find out. Stumbled on a guy getting completely out of his boats and all gear in Oklahoma. Made a trip to the "garage sale" and came back with a few goodies. Gas powered blender with handle bars (simply bad ass), (2) 5 blade px5 props, bunch of ropes ect, and a 2001 30' Daytona with 80ish hrs on 2 572's/xr's. Yep wife is pissed and I'm back in the dog house again

You bought a 30' Daytona at a garage sale? We all know that was the "reason" for going to the garage sale...your wifey doesn't read these boards right??

Dave, well I didn't want to come back empty handed! No, shes not on here but that actually not a bad idea (a helping hand is always a good thing!) . Shes only 5 weeks away from popping out our daughter so not that she'd be any help anyway....Randy, I don't even need to make reservations for my dog house. Doors always open and fridge stocked

Daytona baby seat?

[ATTACH=CONFIG]503374[/ATTACH]Well Chris don't keep us waiting we need to see pics of your "garage sale" find. Then maybe we can help figure out where the boat seat will go for your new boater beauty. Randy
