I acquired this hull from where I work. It was going to be scraped. I offered the owner some money if he had a title for the boat and would include the trailer. He agreed and it came home the next day.
Got it home and found several problems.
1. Floor & bulkheads rotted to topsoil.
2. Bow supports rotten.
3. Berkeley E pump just siliconed in.
After cleaning in out, 1st day home.
Floor removal and old 460 out.
Today I went all the way and cut out the old half rotten bulkhead and 5 garbage bags full of foam. The deck is pretty bouncy now!
When I glass in a new bulkhead and deck support, do I really need to re-use foam? In my opinion, it just traps moisture. I remember seeing other peoples jets with swimming noodles stuffed up in the bow. Any opinions on this?
I will update this thread as work progresses. Wont be to much this year as winter is right around the corner.
