Default 32 Target Build

Got this 32 in from Canada. Boat wrecked in 2009(?) i think. Was structurally repaired by the guys at Target. (I also, think) thats the story that came with the boat. Anyways, Boat was started at another shop then brought here. Bustle was cut off to accept outboards. Boat is getting 400R's.

This is pics as it arrived. Will be getting a full windshield, and full paint. All work (except rigging) is happening at Upstate Powerboat. If you are on social media, @upstatepowerboat on facebook and instagram

the owner of target (Laurent) died in a late fall testing on the st-lawrence river near montreal. flipped or hooked and flipped, can't remember. he was found the next spring... not sure if that was his boat or not. I just know they were fast hull.
Nice project! keep posting pictures of progress !

Nice project! keep posting pictures of progress !

I heard they were fast! I’ll tell you what, this boat has a beautiful build. I think this was the boat that wrecked. I’m not sure how fast it was going when it went , blew the entire hullside out which is surprising as to how tight this build is. Full foam core and epoxy.

I know they run really flat. This tunnel has no draw to it. You could put this dang thing on the trailer backwards if you wanted to lol

going to be a fun build. For a good friend of mine. I couldn’t convince him to put the bustle back on and stay with arnesons. I’m not an outboard fan. Should go quick as most of the brunt work is done already.

we are re facing the transom. There’s a 3/8” foam core on the faces of the wood transom. Never seen that before. So we are doing 3 layers of 1700 and epoxy on both sides of the transom and closing all the holes so there’s no room for cracks and some extra strength against the foam.

not deep enough into the project yet. Our job will take about 3 months. Plus or minus depends how bad it wants to fight. Waiting on a windshield and motor brackets right now.

Sharp looking boat! Do you know windshield and receiver they’re using? I could have used that bustle! LOL

After a good week of just looking. We got the game plan going. Transom holes is cored In. Tomorrow we’re going to layup the transom and get the scarfs going to cap the bustle area. Cleaned up and trued the bustle sides also.

have a little bit of work to wrap up on the 46 this weekend , but next week after we post cure the transom laminate , we’ll cap in the inside bustle areas with pre built panels of nida-core

Transom is closed, and bodyworked. Have the bustle all capped and in bodywork now. This pre laminated double sided nida- core is some bad ass time saving stuff ! We also scarfed the entire transom, closing the arneson holes. So the entire face of the transom now has 3 layers of 1700 and epoxy , so no worries about old holes coming back down the road.

Is that screws holding the curve potion on? Do they stay when you glass?
