Boat Project

I bought this boat about two years ago. I didn’t have it out at all last year due to time constraints. I thought that I’d restore this boat and add some things to make it nice.

Here are the goals.

1) Rip out all old hardware, include chairs since they’re fairly weathered.
2) Rebuild the transom section.
3) Add floors to the back (between the back seat and transom) and to the front for storage/standing places.
4) Repair the back corner that lacks a reinforcing aluminum corner.
5) Add wiring for lights, trolling motor, and bilge pump. Install a switch box/distribution center for it. Add an “outlet” for charging the battery in place (e.g., connect the battery charger to the boat so I don’t have to remove the battery.)
6) Paint it nice and perdy.
7) Add a drain plug and properly weld some holes that are now filled with silicone.
8.) Replace necessary items on the trailer (tires, jack, etc.)

Up first: Ripping out the hardware, seats, and stuff.
