Hi Jim,

Your efforts and patience were inspiring. Is there anything left to restore/fix replace on your boat? Seems like a lot of boat for the price.

Well after long thought about selling the boat. I am going to keep it all winter and repaint the out side of the boat. Not sure if I am going to keep the flake or two tone it in different color all together. Then put it back up for sale in the spring. I will keep you all posted as I get working on it.

Well ok had a change of heart on selling the LTD. I will be keeping it and finishing up all the little things in the spring.
Trailer refurb
Fenders redone
New carpet
Swim platform
Last but not least finish wet sanding and polishing the boat out to original gel coat.
I will post pics as I move along.

Makes sense. You've done all this work already, may as well enjoy it yourself.
