Resto working right up to end of October.. Last week another sand bar cruise to creek island... For a polishing boat we have ten boards to match stain & build up varnish.. Also step stool...There are three floor boards, under bow shelf for life vests, etc... Both seat backs are double sided to varnish.. and the paddle.. .All four seat boards , get a AL metal edge trim cap to polish.... Today we got first polish buffer on the side,, starting to get reflection. ..... Last Sunday took wife to JASPER Highlands , for preview of new restaurant opening.. Called "Top of Rock" this is along I-24 west of Chattanooga.. Many lodge type homes to build for retirees across country . looking down into Tenn river gorge at Nick - a Jack lake...

Keep at it. Looks like a fun boat.

What is the beam length, it looks wide from the picture?

I went to buy a boat about five years ago in Chattanooga., Tenn.. Guy was friendly , but a boat, sport car hoarder , not lowering price. Each spring would E-mail each other, even stop back and look at boat, uncovered.. He did have all cushions , floor panel in garage as windshield, cone top, etc. Finally last week he lowered price to make space and I just recently sold my smaller 58 Al boat. Brought home a few days ago, 30 minutes , towed great even with old cracked tires... Since have opened up the wheel bearing & ordered 7100 size set. Old race punched out easy. . Under the tan is Yellow GATOR tilt , & rear bunk Shaker lever trailer, NO hubcaps. New winch.
Seller had last nine years of Tenn registration tags, but never worked on it. . All six red & white cushions were in garage, Lots of wood seats, parts to varnish , paddle with this boat. 15 ft step thru front seat , cigarette 12 volt light in dash & rear seat floor light. . Attwood steering wheel , two tone & cables work back to rear... New roll of vinyl material to replace the sun top. Tuesday got paperwork at our D.M.V. Harbor freight new tire / rim , nose JACK with dolly wheel. Set of wheel bearings at Tractor Supply .. Wed was LAUNCH and swim in our 95 degree heat . Tilt trl is a dream ..... Wed Oct 9 still low 80 temps here & went local Sale Creek testing the 2 hp Yamaha , Sand island is good swim stop , along higher rock ledges.... Started front deck polish. Three coats of varnish on both seats. Windshield soon.
