Ok guys... First off.... heres a side view of my new old boat. Now, heres ONE of the problems with the boat. It say for several years. The drain holes got plugged up and water filled under the deck and sat there, rotting the wood from the bottom up. I removed the frame and trap door for the ski stow area and below you will find the links to what it looks like now. I am thinking that I can just carefully cut it an inch to either side of where the side walls are, put in a couple of inserts made from marine grade plywood on each end, screw it down and cut out the new opening for the frame and trap door and cover it all with new fiberglass material then recarpet. Will that work???? If not, what SHOULD I do for a permanate fix? The ultimate goal here is to restore this boat back to very good condition so I can sell it for a down payment on a real cat boat.
