We typically put the boat up on blocks when repairing the bottom. To the best of my knowledge the deck is not designed to support the weight of the boat so keeping her right side up is in your best interest.

Sanding the bottom is not fun, get some eye, nose and mouth protection. A floor kreeper is pretty slick too.

The resto is going great! Can't wait to see the finished product.

You may want to think about replacing some of those bolts with stainless one's.

Thanks Corey, I was looking at it today and it shoudnt be to hard to get it up on blocks to work on.

Thanks Yellow, I am going to paint the bolts head to finish them off. Everything has been tourqed down I dont want to tear it all back down to change the bolts and have to buy new gaskets again. I should have done that before reassemby of the motor.

They will do fine being painted. I just didn't want to see all that hard work get ruined on the first trip to the water.

LOL I couldn't agree more with you. How do you like the heads ? Should I paint them blue or leave them black?

Get some Rustoleum Rust Reformer primer to hit those bolt heads prior to painting them. It neutralizes the rust and is a very good primer. That should keep the bolt heads looking good, otherwise any little corrosion under the paint will eventually bleed through.

MrMastercraft, I will be spraying some on the bolts to help stop the rust I did spray that on all the steel parts I did paint to help slow down the rust from forming.
