Yeah line up a couple moderators to move stuff around ! :lol: Troy, the stuff is selling as fast as I list it. Guess I better jack it up a bit. The Pug Robby has 6 days left and I started it at 10 bucks. Robots are hot again !

The moderators suck on this site, oh wait..., there are none. Luckily I know the administrator and he moved it to its correct location...

Howdy 'Eagle,'

I'll 'see' your "bot" and raise you an "M-715." :|

Someone else will now get to enjoy these "things" that we once cherished and admired so we can work this wonderful hobby.

It's a "win/win" situation.

Just my 2¢ worth.

Sincerely,

Troy

Day 5 continued final stripping and started sanding all of the grinder marks from the idiot that painted it. Went to surplus city and found a 4 ft by 10 inch piece of .125 aluminum for 8 bucks !!! Teonia threw in a couple signs for in the garage. I think I'm tearing the rear seat out tomorrow. Decided to sell a 55 yr old bot to finance the 65 yr old Vagabond. :(

If I had your metal skills I would cut out all the bad metal in the bow strap and bend a new piece that extends past the cast keel piece (which would become an interesting paperweight or object d'art) to good metal. Not factory original, but as you say, subject to interpretation.

By the way, on the old forum one of the moderators would have moved this thread to Restoration long ago.

Tipped the boat over today and removed all of the bondo to reveal ugliness. I don't know what happened here . It looks as if something heavy was dropped on the boat. It's moderate damage,,not too bad. My buddy that builds race cars came over and looked at it. We are going to tig all the cracks and holes. I got all of the dents out of the hull. EASY !!! This is not the same alloy us my 58 Vagabond. These can be popped out with a 1lb hammer. Something is missing between the leading edge of the keel and the trailing edge of the bow strap. See the lap joint where the left and right hull pieces are joined at the factory. Check your 40's boats guys . See if anything could go here. If not it is open to artistic interpretation . The rest of the hull is clean. As the rivets popped off during time,,the bad rivets were bondo'd over. I still have a pretty good supply of 90 yr old American Chestnut in the basement. 3"x15"x100" . It needs re-sawed.
