The clear gelcoat has just worn away over the years. The clears did not hold up as well in years past as it does today. You can always have someone paint over the flake with todays automotive clear urethane topcoat and bring it back to life.
This is a common problem also on the older metalflake bass boats!

Thanks pan. I just scratched the surface on my boat. You got a real project on your hands! Good luck with yours.

First of all, fantastic job on your restoration. What size tires did you put on your trailer? I have the same trailer with F78-14. I found a conversion chart that shows 205/75/14 to be the metric equivalent, but I was wondering if I could find a 15" tire with similar overall dimensions that would fit.

Anyone know where I might be able to find one of these back prop/rudder guards. I don't want to bang up my prop. My trailer did not have one and I have 4 bolt holes instead of 2 holes on each bunk rail.
Also has anyone heard of flipping the axle over on the trailer to gain some extra clearance for the prop and rudder.
