Finished the interior install today, hats off to my guy who did some awesome work. Lights in the shop make it look white, but the vinyl is more of a cream like the boat...

Anyone in the Chicago area that wants good work at a good price PM me for details, these guys were top notch in my book.

After I install the rubrail the boat is officially done for now. Cant wait to hit the water.

Thanks guys I am finally starting to finish up alot of things on the big list I made for the boat about 6months ago. I am happy with the way it turned out and cant wait to share it with the family.

Yes I did post this on the facebook page, I was shocked when I realized that this boat was built some 28 years ago and every single screw, nut, bolt you name it was reused. That is saying something about quality. Everything went right back in the way in came out, even the holes in the fiberglass with the anchors held every screw factory new tight. Pretty amazing.

My father owns and operates a bike shop with a large heated storage area and that is where the boat spent most of the winter so I could work on it.

Thanks for the compliments, hopefully today I can get her out in the sun wiped down a bit and really take some quality pictures. I couldnt have done this without such a great group of helpful people on this site helping out along the way so thank you.

In his sig... 1983

Looks beautiful O3!!!! the colored MC logo on the motor box makes a subtle custom touch compared to just the embossed factory one.

Thanks man. Yeah the embossed area was not able to be reproduced so what I did was cut it out of the rear section and gave it to my embroiderer to scan the exact size and shape. He then used the same color thread I used for the stitching on the cushions to make the logo in the exact same place it should have been from the factory. I was happy with the results.

Thanks again for the props coming from you guys it means alot.

Is the back seat original, or did you make it / have it made?

I would like a back seat in mine as well...

Great job, the boat looks awesome.

Do you own a bicycle shop?

That is the same thought that I had. I definitely know the neighbor that I would go to for my mountain bike repair.

Boat seats are all original, nothing had to be remade which was nice.

I wish but thats a long way to take my girl from Chicago. Besides once I get her on the water I am going to start restoring the paint and fenders on the trailer.
