    started a topic Floor replacement.

    Floor replacement.

    So I am taking on a project that I know some of you will think I would be better off getting rid of and buying a newer boat, but i like putting in the work. It makes it that much more enjoyable once it's done. I picked up an 85 bayliner capri 18' at some point someone half *** patched the floor. Over time it worsened. I have been a big car guy over the years. Done body work/painted for 15 years. Never done a floor on a boat though. Anyway I started ripping out the old wood. My question is what is the best way to get the panels out from where the steering wheel is and on the opposite side? Once panels are out dies the upper part just hang there?

    Was there not another name for those entry level Bayliners,--------AKA ----" Paperliners "------A shame that they allow these shoddy boats on the market.------Very few standards on boats and RV / Motorhomes as far as construction material.

    It's a volvo penta AQ125A I seen a few posts saying AQ125A with 270 , but not sure how to tell if that is what I have. Just trying to look at posts and videos to see what it takes to get it off. Any help with a link to walkthroughs that would be for this drive?

    That is an older Volvo "AQ" drive. That's about all that stands out by looking at the leg/ transom assembly. A Mercruiser is more forgiving, but it's not an OMC Stringer drive which is good.

    I can't believe the person I got it from was actually using the boat still. Thanks for the positive replies. Now to research on how to get this motor out lol.

    I also hoped that my transom was spared even though my floor and stringers were mush. A lot of the first part that I chiseled was actually pretty dry I wondered if I'd wish I hadn't started the process... but the other half, and mostly the inner center towards the outer hull, was wet and rotted. You won't be sorry that since you've gone to all the trouble to replace the other wood in the boat, you know the transom is new as well.
