Hey, I haven't been around much lately, been crazy busy at work and since I can't buy a fish when the water gets cold, I decided to tear down the ol' barge and go to work on it. In between commuting from KC to Minneapolis, L.A., and Canada for work, I got the boat in the garage and stocked up on some tools (welder, air compressor, picking up cylinders for my torch, etc) to rework it. Got it gutted and by spring I plan to put in foam, new decks, new storage, and convert it to center console. Also getting a fresh coat of paint. Oh, yeah, and to fit it in the garage I had to cut the hitch of the trailer, so I've got a bit of welding to do there to make a quick-release hitch:smile2: I've got 10 days off around Christmas, so I plan to spend it in the garage (or the lab, as I like to call it:wink finishing up the boat. I s'pose I need to keep an eye on the board for Cuz's lead fest as well, I'll be ready for a break by then I'm sure. Anyway, hope everyone is doing well and has a great holiday season! Attachment is progress to date on the boat.
