I am new to this forum and would like to say hello to all the members. I purchased a basket case 1986 Winner 18.5' center console about a year ago and began a restoration shortly thereafter. I am posting a few pictures from the day I drug it home. If any members would like to see updated pictures throughout the work I'll be happy to post them. Thank you for your time and hope to hear your input and experiences with your Winner boats.

As long as the foam is dry and not water logged.----They still did have wood in the transom I think.

The foam in the stringers was not waterlogged and the transom seemed solid (banged the hell out of it with a rubber mallet and it sounded dense as it should)

Gave the inside a good cleaning. I opened up the rear hatch and noticed the previous owner had removed a through hull transducer with a saw😡

Had a hole in the fiberglass hull patched and did some transom work.

A bit of teak work to duplicate and replace missing hatch covers.
