Well I drilled out the back seat to see if there was any damage underneath. There is. 4 out of 8 cracked stringers where the seat was riveted in. No biggie . But due to the tumblehome the rear seat is impossible to remove without removing the front seat back. That isn't going to happen. Rear seat will have to be repaired while in the boat. I need a squeeze riveter . Anyone have one to loan or rent ? Oh well guess I need one anyhow. Sell more robots ! :lol:

Mark, that thing really is looking great. I'm still amazed at how pencil thin it is. John

Sept 3rd All of the yellow paint is gone . Repairs to start Wednesday. Easier to tilt the boat up to let the debris run to the back. Looks like the Naboo on a gantry ! :lol:

Geeze oh petes . I started sanding today. Whoever prepped the Naboo for paint did two things wrong. First they used a hand grinder to rough up the aluminum ,,,,just time consuming to get them out. Second and worse they used something that actually Gulled the surface in a lot of places . It heat treated the surface and is difficult to sand down. I got 1/2 of the starboard side done today. I need to use the 5hp compressor for this job. Still, I enjoy every minute of it.
