Joe asked the question about lifting the boat by the bow handle, I just wanted to show how the bow handle is attached on a 56 Rocket, if the welder was awake the day this was done it should be no problem.

A few weeks ago, Ray and Nick replaced some rivets in my boat. Ray showed me a bad dent, and today, Ray and Nick straightened it out and put in some more rivets. There is still some work to be done on the hull, but it's a lot better. I'm about ready to buy a motor, I plan to get a 30HP Tohatsu, if I don't change my mind again. My boat came with a teleflex, but I would prefer a cable system. If anyone has a steering hub for sale like the one in the picture below, let me know. If you recognize your boat, I got the picture at Arrowhead last fall. I came down to AH one day and looked at all the boats. The other picture is Ray and Nick putting in a Rivet.
