    Default 1977 sleekcraft build.

    my dad and i bought this boat maybe a year ago for $250.00, the inside of the boat had 4 inches of water and maybe an inch of leaves on top of that when we first saw it, we asked if the guy could jack the front end up and drain the water, and when it drained out if he'd call us. he never called, so a year later we were in the area and went to his house. it was dry, and we ended up buying it then and there. we brought it home and tore it apart. the floor was actually really good despite all the water, and then the project began.we got it color sanded and buffed, and we built an engine for it. didn't drop it in, but we lifted the boat off the trailer and painted the trailer. let the paint set and then dropped it on the trailer. dropped the engine in, wired it, did the upholstery and then did some little detail stuff, and then went to the lake to test her out.

    Default Thanks Guys!

    there was a problem with the carbs dumping to much gas into the intake, and my dad didnt want to hassle with it so he ended taking the tunnel ram off, and i believe he put a edelbrock torker manifold on. still a nice cruiser, i would say a 55- 60 mph boat, not to bad.

    I don't know if I believe you on the wet sanding part. Are you sure that's not new paint. Hahaha. Looks great!!! What do you use to paint trailers and do you media blast them or sand them? My trailer looks like the "before" pic and I want it to look like the "after" lol.

    My Dad uses a wire wheel for the rough stuff, then sand them the applies the paint, and i believe he clears over it, i'm not sure, but i think he does, id have to get back to you on what his procedure is.
