removed floor,Had three pop rivet's loose.fix them,still taking on water.so i removed aluminum deck in back.found the live well hose split in two places.this was completely in cased in foam behind aluminum.the plywood was good,the front foam was dry,only the foam from the console to the back was completely waterlogged. so i don't see how not having a shed had anything to do with it.
Think about this just for a couple of seconds.
A man goes out and buys a 4 wheeler for 6 grand and he parks it in his garage or builds a garage for it.
A man goes out and pays 3 grand for a lawn mower and keeps it under a roof.
A man pays 150 bucks for a rod and reel combo and he doesn't leave it laying in the yard.
Yet the same man goes out and buys a 15,000 dollar boat and leaves it sitting in the yard.
The word "boat" does not mean impervious to water and the elements.
Folks just have a completely wrong attitude regarding boats.
I'll pay absolutely zero dollars for a boat that sits in the elements. Too much trouble.
If you tear into them and do full restores on them like I do you would see what I'm talking about.
The reason full restores are required is because they sit in the weather.
Atleast 3 grand in materials in the one I'm restoring now. Several hundred hours.
A boat aint a duck.
