    Default 81 bahner build

    well about a year ago i picked up a 77 can am bubbledeck with a 468 bbc berk pump ran it all season long, knew their were a few fiberglass problems with the hull and had plans to glass in new stringers , do some bottom work , fix the stress cracks and repaint the entire boat... well i figured after i stripped the boat and started into it that it would be more cost effective to just pick up a hull in good shape and swap everything over... after getting some cash together and selling a few things i picked up the 81 bahner up in flagstaff from nick.... the stringers are solid, he painted it, cleared the top but needed the bottom speed coated and finished ... the trailer is a competitve tandem that was orange with overspay galore ... this is where im at at the moment. just figured id post

    Is that cooler supporting the boat or are you just keeping it out of the sun?

    Great project by the way.
