Talking My new swim board

As I have noted in earlier threads, I bought this boat from an idiot (hope he doesn't read this) who left the boat outside without cover for probably years. Well, needless to say the swim board was probably never cared for since new in 1998. A couple of the boards were cracked, and instead of fixing them, I figured I would build an entirely new board. Here is my finished product. I am very proud of it.

That's awesome. Looks like a factory platform. Nice work!

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Thanks guys

That means a lot coming from you folks.

If anyone wants to tackle it themselves, shoot me an email or PM and I will give you my tips and tricks.

It wasn't terribly difficult, just some careful de-construction of the old one, and measuring twice. I made a couple mistakes, but luckily had some extra teak to fix them.

Man that stuff is expensive. The whole project cost me about $300 just in wood!
