    Default Helping a friend

    MY friend (my tow ho too and one of my best buds) bought this jet, had new stringers scabbed in, Put a motor in it, then brought it to my shop to plumb and rig, new cables, etc, after some thought (about two seconds) I decided he was getting a new subfloorClick image for larger version.

    Hi I am guessing That much rotton wood you pulled out,, The bulkhead and transom before glass is shot, Check the strinngers were holes are already drilled for water damage. ??

    Well he got a deal on the boat, so I told him we could get it going, affordably complete budget build, using all my spare parts, which is good and kinda bad, some I probably would of saved forever or never used, plus giving to a good friend so he can make some noise in the water, plus fun bitching at him

    I wanted to torch it...a few times, to date my toughest time with a glass job, just wont cooperate the way I wanted and was not up to par, my buddy said "eff it" "it will be fine" but I couldnt stand it, cut and sanded, reapplied and sanded and the carpet down.
    Seats and fuel and he will be water worthy...i think....

    Let me see if I understand this. You don't have time to work on your race boat buy do have time to work on a raised Titanic?

    Must be good practice for rent house repair.
