So this will be my first attempt at any type of boat restoration. I was given a 1967 starcraft aluminum deep v 16 footer from my father in law, and its been catching Pine needles for about 6 months now. I live 5 minutes from the cape cod canal and ive got the itch to get out there and land some stripers(or just float around to escape the wife and kids for a few hours). Boat was bought from original owner. Was also lucky enough to get a late 70s 50hp evinrude that came off a running boat in the deal. Today i finally got around to deconstructing it. I ripped up the carpeting and found two layers of plywood, the bottom layer basically mulch at this point. Top layer good enough to reuse for a pattern. Will follow with pictures. Any tips greatly appreciated, i am winging this one hard for sure so go easy on me through this, we'll get there.
