No truer words spoken!

sorry Archer my service is sketchy at this shop and just caught this, if thatís the case Iíll switch to the rear pickups when I do the bottom of the boat so I can delete those ones. Iíll be in touch with you when I get to that point

Deleting a bunch of holes and the rear pickups, found some cracks and glass that was delaminating so my quick job has inevitably changed. Most the parts are blasted and ready for paint. I keep staring at the engine bay and I think while itís apart Iím going to scuff it up and repaint, maybe itís a mistake but I want to do black...

Iíd like to get some advice from some of you boat proís. I have the heat exchangers out and the ridiculous amount of rubber plumbing. Where this is going to be 99% a fresh water boat now is there really any advantage to reusing this stuff? Itís heavy and a lot of potential leaks (I had a couple last season from clamps that loosened off) Iím debating going open loop and ditching all this ****

Well everything is painted, itís not good... but itís done. I screwed up on my way out the door this morning and grabbed my primer gun with a giant tip and didnít realize it until I had the epoxy primer mixed, so I rolled the dice... primer went down good but the paint not so much, needless to say Iím going to be sanding out some runs😂

Good to see your woman working on the boat with you. Only downside to that is when they start asking questions about the cost of things.

I've become a master at keeping boat expenses so confusing that I don't even know what the cost is half the time lol! She's a trooper, her only demand is that I have to put a head in it...

Got back on the boat, spent the majority of the weekend sanding. Pretty sure Iím going to itch for the next month lol also found some rot, the firewall was made out of 3/4Ē melamine so it looked good but was toast behind the white face. Back seat was rotted along with the side panels. I have a different plan for repairing most of this from the hot rod world that I think you guys will like so stay tuned for some aluminum vood




oo
