Well since Hot boat is taking it's sweet ole time about restoring pic's I will atempt to move the thread over here.
Ok here goes.I have been wanting to write a thread following the progress of the restoration of My Kona,for a while now,but havent had the time to spend on it.
However I will try to make the time When ever I can.
Please keep in mind that some of the pics that I will be showing are of work that I have done on the boat more than a year ago.That being said and My limited budget,hopefully the tread will catch up to the present day progress.
These first pics are when I went to Huntington beach to pick up the boat.
I bought the boat less engine,but it did come with the basset water injected headers,and all the stain less braided hoses.
The pump is a jacuzzi 12wj freshly rebuilt about 4 years ago but never ran after rebuild,with a place diverter.
A litle story about the previous owner.Aparently he had
a prety good motor in the boat ,and was running it at lake Mead,as He use to live in Vegas,when He got pitched from the boat.I guess He got scared of it and never ran it again.
I guess before he decided that he was'nt going to drive the boat again,He had the pump done and new interior and carpet put in.
The boat has been regellcoated,but the deck has a bunch of tiny cracks all over and other spots that are crazing. I later found that the cracks in the deck were in the glass too,but the other cracks were only in the gell.
