    16 and got a boat, that's awesome!! looks like a great project for you and your Dad. There's a boat load of lessons to be learned (pun intended) right there. Good luck, I'm looking forward to seeing the progress as you go. Take lots of pics. Greg

    Congrats on the boat. What's the story on all those classic Chevy trucks? That 67/68 hood looks odd to me with the 71/72 grill.

    Thanks! I'll be sure to keep you updated with lots of pictures! Today i was referred to as "the son my dad never had." Guess i gotta keep my rep up!
    You know, I'm unsure about the trucks, they are at the shop my boat is being held at, ask Ketlinski, they're all his!

    Tim - you made my little girl pretty damn excited! She can't stop talking about "her" boat. Got to admit , I am kind of excited too.

    That's even cooler! My baby girl is 24 and I would have loved to have done something like this with her. Funny, she would have probably been all over it. My son has to be forced just to maintain is own motorcycle. I tried to get him involved in building a sand rail, he said he wasn't interested unless it was going to be a trophy truck.

    Default Day 1 complete!

    Got the boat home and tore everything apart to see what we have - the boat is in pretty good shape. We will need to do some glass work to the stringers but the floor is very nice. The interior is in great shape and cleaned up very well. I will need to pull the tanks and get the old fuel out - is there a specific way to clean the inside of the tanks out before I reinstall them? Now it's time to make a list of what we need and go rob a bank! More picture when my daughter gets them put up.
