Update: I have been skiing my *** off. Snow skiing... My 7 & 9 year olds are skiing in the trees with me @ Royal Mountain and my boat has been taking up space in my garage. I had one weekend off from skiing and I started wet sanding the transom. LOVE how effective it is. I'm needing to take down most of the gel coat - it's in horrible condition. Learned that the blue flake is under all of the gray - made me think about taking down all of the gray and making it an all blue flake boat, but changed my mind.

I have about 1/2 of the transom wet sanded- went really light with 240 grit, 400, 800 and 1200. Buffed with starbright polishing compound - looks great. My goal is to finish the transom, get the swim platform back on, pitots, etc. I need to get plywood for the floor and get the inside functional.

No money left for new upholstery, so that will have to wait. I'm debating how to finish the front bow section. I'm not putting foam back in, so I'll have storage, but I have a battery and steering/throttle cables to deal with. Anyone have any pictures of how I might be able to best finish off this space?

Two more weekends of snow skiing then it's full-time on to the boat.

More posts to come.
