started stripping the paint on the 18 ft. flat bottom I bought last friday . Removed 2 bench seats and a transom unit on back . Looks like it has 5 layers of paint on it . I found some interested lettering on the sides that said m.v.admiral in orange lettering . I believe it may have belonged to the admiral casino boat in st.louis . which is now the president . Will have to check it out . getting all the paint off is a pain in the rear . Once I get the boat stripped and painted i have to start the trailer . Will start taking pictures tomorrow .
