Pkreusch, I know I will have to add avatar soon I might get one up today. I am not doing anything with the windshield at all. Mask around it just to spray some clear to make it shine again. For the inaugural tour looks like the end of may or the second week of June I hope. I am just taking my time getting it done and not rushing to get finish it.

Good choice to leave the windshield if nothing is wrong. Your painting efforts are really paying off. You must be well equiped and experienced in painting.

Didn't think you were using rattle cans, but that explains why your work looks so good.

Thanks Mr.MC , LOL no rattle cans to paint the motor or the trans. Just alittle paint and a ton of clear to seal it up from the water. I put the motor mounts back on today I painted them black but I didnt take off the trans mounts I will have to paint them on the boat. It is comming along, next week I am going to get the wood for the floor and start cutting the patterns that I saved when I took off the old floor. I will have more pics of all the wood work soon.

At least I can live vicariously through you and the rest of the guys on this site until I get my boat back in town.

What is your choice of wood for the floor?

I am going to go with marine plywood at least 7 ply or more. I can get it here from Michigan Lumber Company. I am not sure what it will cost per sheet I will give them a call in the morning.

I replaced the decking on the other boat (non-MC) last fall and used exterior grade plywood. Has the same adhesive just fewer layers. It was less than half the price, but I 'm not sure if I would have economized on my '77. On suggestion from a local marine shop http://www.shipwreckboats.com/contact.html I put two coats of urathane spar varnish on each side and four coats on the edges prior to carpetting.

Are you planning on glassing the marine plywood?

I was going to glass the wood in but I have been thinking about putting a pice of 2x2 around the border where the old wood glassed down. I would glass down the 2x2 so I could screw down the floor to it. I am thinking about going this way incase I would have a problem under the plywood then I can pull either side up to work on it.
