    1963 16 ft Starcraft Jupiter restoration

    Super hot today so got out the umbrella and went to work on taking apart the boat. first thing was to make a motor stand out of scrap wood I had and get the motor off.

    Please don't post to old threads marika. It's not looking like V8 is coming back.

    V8's last post was after ezmobee made his post over two years ago. So I'll echo ez's post with a minor change - "Please don't post to old threads caswesm. It's not looking like V8 is coming back."

    Uhhmmm Caswesm You should familiarize yourself with our forum Rules and Guidelines. They dictate that only the OP can open a thread that's more than 90 days old. This one is over 2 years old. Start a thread with pics and descriptions of your boat and you'll get a lot of input from the members here on the forum

    I am still here EZ. I have been on vacation LOL. actually I am retiring this year and was saving my projects for then but I still am lurking around and sorry I have not been active but will try harder as I have been working but* loads of overtime to help my early retirement. and I only used 1/2 inch plywood for my floor because I beefed up the support structure under the floor.

    What type and thickness of plywood did you use? I took the old deck out of my Jupiter and the trash guy was very ambitious and hauled it away before i had a chance to use it as a template....ugh. So I'm not exactly sure how thick it was. I am planning to use exterior glued plywood, my guess is about 5/8", but not sure.

    Just reading up on the jupiter resto and I was wondering where I could buy some of that lime ZC fuel tank primer. I want to repaint my boat and want the most durable product for a aluminum boat.

    thanks for all the great pics and ideas..just brought my tired old '61 Jupiter home for a new floor and transom (2nd one)..seeing what you've done makes a full resto look like a better idea but am short on time with fishing season fast approaching & boat has 6" of fresh snow covering it

    What did you use to patch your aluminum? Looks really solid...
