    Ive decided to share this process with ya'll. I bought the boat and trailer for $100, I removed the bad pieces of floor and replaced them.(you can veiw the boat when I first bought it in the general conversation section under "the veiw from my backyard " post.

    , the guy began to saw up the storage locker. Other then trying to fix it back the way it was, instead I extended it to the splash well and carpeted the top of it to double as a seat.( pic 1)

    ive reglassed the live well and installed an areator (pic2)(which I already had) the tube was alittle high on the areator so i shortened it to fit.

    in pic 3 you can see the keel on the boat is flawless,in the past when ive restored old boats a common problem was the keels were almost always damaged from sand and gravel landings.

    I will keep updating here as this boat progresses.

    total investment right now $148

    Barry your the man. With a little tender love and care, that boat will be up and running. I think you found a bargain. Good Luck.:lol::big_smile:
