You know, cleaning up those wheels and painting gloss white or black would really highlight the boat. Port side wheel looks good, but starboard side is rusty.

Prob gonna just put new ones on it.  To much work to sand and paint em, lots of old grease on back of rims.  Plus I didn"t go cheap on rest of boat so no time to start now.

You got that baby lookin good Eric! How"s the old Miss over your way? It"s a mess here with all the rain, but I did manage to catch a few cats last week.

Very nice.  Excellent attention to detail.  You might consider it entry level, but it sure looks like quality workmanship to me!

Miss is right a flood stage.  Water to the rails on dock at ramp.  Cats are hitting pretty good.  Good time to stay out of main channel, lots of floating stuff.

Very nice job there dahogman !

I have a 19?? SportCraft, fiberglass that I"m going to rebuild when it gets cooler.

If work stays like it is I might just pull it in the shop where I work and start.

I got a couple new tires and rims today. I got some eight spoke white wagon wheels with 530-12"s load range C. It had B"s on it but I thought C"s might be a little more suited. Makes the Trailer look like a new one now. I"ll let the old tires go as spares as they are in pretty good shape not checked or cracked and lots of tread left, the rims just looked terrible. I must be getting lazy  as I didn"t even try to sand the old ones. $130 for the new ones, I wasn"t going to sweat it for that.

Eric,

You"ve done a great job on that old boat. I"m sure someone will be proud to use it.

I really want to do a 18 ft dual console.  Starcrafts are my favorite but are hard to come by in decent enough shape and cheap enough to make it affordable.

Wow!!!  12,700 + views, it's been a while since I've been here.  Thank you everyone for taking the time to view my build.  This build was pretty fun and I gained a lot of valuable advice and knowledge.  I'm looking forward to doing another one.  I've been doing refinish and restoration on old oak furniture.  I think I like boats better.
