This is My new Craigslist find. Looking to restore/ repair this ole girl. Not sure the extent of restoration that is going to happen but, For me It's all about a bit of down time work/fun. This is my first Aluminum boat restore - so I'm starting small.
|Just picked this up from a craigslist find in Defuniak Springs FL.||She is home safely|
|Time to measure and build racks. New home for the winter.||No that is NOT rust. it is a boatload full of carpet glue. ohh the joy!|
|Decoding the serial. Could not have done it without this site.||Anyone up for some Swiss cheese? Looks like I'll need two rolls of FLEX SEAL. HAHAHA|
|Opened the rear seat for 1st time since 1956. WOW! that was nasty! What did that Styrofoam do? besides get nasty?||Had a few color changes over the years. 1st - Gold Anodized aluminum, 2nd tan, 3rd- brick red.|
|Started to clean the bottom side. I see a few weekends here! Removed 90% of the paint and now the fun 10% is left.|
