    Will post pics up later. The hull is in great shape. Original paint is faded. Speed coat on the bottom. Theres a lot of small holes for a snap on cover and lights. We started on filling in the unneeded holes and sanding the boat down last night. Plans are for my wife to paint it, new rubrail and carpet. New upholstery on the seats. All new white faced gauges, anodized blue bezels, fuel fills, steering helm, white steering wheel. New cables, etc... Installing a berk pump and dropping our 460 in it. And we have approx. 4 months to complete. lol.

    Any ideas on how to flip this thing over for paint? We were told to flip the hull and set in on some tires, but the sides are so thin that we are almost positive it will crack if enough pressure is applied. Not sure what we can set it on, and hoping you guys can help us out.
