hopefully I'll be able to find the number on the transom over the weekend and the year of manufacture mystery can be finally sorted..

in the meantime..

the rip out started within 24 hours of me getting the boat home..

the reason being the inner (engine mount) stringers are more like mush than wood.. the front mount had dropped by about 1"



real comfy rear seat area.. lol


now gone..


and the front now gone too..

with the carpet ripped up it was time to get onto the floor itself..



the ply bulkhead panel you can see under the dashboard is now removed as that had also rotted due to the fact when the later windshield was fitted it hadnt been sealed correctly




the rip out is a bit further on than pictured at the moment but I didnt take any pics from last weekends work.. I'll get some done before I start this weekend (hopefully he says cause its snowing at the moment)

Nice pics, nice boat, and nice project. Thanks for sharing.

The HIN should be right below the rubrail on the right side of the transom. The info is killing me already, I can't believe you've had the boat for a week and haven't found it yet.
