I used a hand-held sanding block with 60 grit paper to refinish my teak deck. The rough grit wasn't a problem because it was hand-powered. A finishing sander with 80-120 grit would probably work...

You say that the starboard glass is broken, but your picture shows port side.

that's called "engine turning", traditionally done with a drill press. I doubt that the dashboard pictured is real engine turning, probably plastic or a vinyl overlay.

If you were to cut out the fiberglass to make a bowrider you would lose a LOT of structural integrity, not unlike cutting the top off a car to make a convertible. It would be a Very Bad Idea IMO.

Thoughts:

1) I think your tires were just too old and beat up by the sun
2) ST tires are rated for 60 mph; you say you drive 60-70 mph. Some say you can go faster than 60 if you over-inflate them...

Kumho trailer tires are 82 section width, so the size they list of 205R14 is more accurately a 205/82-14, which is dimensionally very close to a more standard-sized 215/75-14. The capacity is 2270...

You may also notice it when making a sharp turn to the right. My '92 did that, and I fixed it by adding 1 pint of fluid to the transmission.

So true, but it is not a roomy boat. I sold my TriStar two years ago, picked up a '92 205, couldn't be happier.

the frame doesn't look level to me, you should level it. You can get a trailer ball wrench for $10-12 at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc, definitely worth it IMO. Leave the ball mount in the receiver,...
