    Enjoyed the initial history! Looks like a great project for you. I also like the boat-full-of-snow pictures...for a minute, I thought I was looking at craigslist!

    Curious to see what you'll do with this one...

    Ah sheesh budski, that hoggs so much space on me back there. Yah, I really don't think I can let it go. I'm nearly certain we'll be chopping it out. Kinda like...


    Knowwhattamean?

    Yah, the trailer frame is sold, everything else is junk and will get a full rehab. Trailer rehab, so much fun eh

    I can't make out anything on the Data Plate as it's completely faded...


    .....but this hull would have to be rated to at least 90, maybe a little more. I should dig a little see what kinda data is on the ol interweb.

    Cheers

    So after those initial photos I went ahead did just a little work, tore the bimini out, that's trash...


    I also tried to shovel out all that snow. Well, all the while I was being bombed with snowballs by these two rugrats!!!!!


    Darn kids! I taught those boys well (maybe too well)

    One thing about this boat I really don't think I can live with is the stern OB setup, check it out...




    By my calculations I am looking at nearly 12.5 square feet of potential cockpit room taken up by this giant splashwell and stern decking. Sheesh, that sure is a ton of space eaten up on this boat!

    I'm not so sure I can let that go. I may cut all that out and run a small splashwell to try and gain some of that back. We'll see.......

    Anyhow, thanks for stopping in fellas, cheers!

    I'd be lying if I said it hasn't crossed my mind. Several times actually

    This boat was really pushing around my Yukon XL on the haul home, she was really heavy with the 2' of wet/heavy snow. And now doubt the super heavy soaked expanding foam that lies beneath

    I think she'll fill the gap nicely

    By comparison to my former Sea Nymph I know for sure she's a 1/2' longer and I'd guestimate probably about maybe 5" deeper and another 4"-5" wider. She'll be a bigger, more capable, roomier rig than the previous. Cool!

    Thanks man! She won't see any action for a while though, I yet have another that needs my attention for at least the next few months

    Yah, me too buddy, I have lots of ideas swirling around at the moment, we'll see where I actually land I suppose
