    Cool Newbie from TN...

    Just joined the PB forum and appreciate the threads that are out there. I'm rebuilding a 1075 Apollo 18' jet boat with Olds 455 and Berkley pumper. Have taken boat all the way down to just a fiberglass hull, replaced the stringers, cross bars and am finishing up all the glass work. It goes to the painter next week. I have a local engine builder plowing through the engine that was running when I got the boat. I've completely rebuilt the pumper and blueprinted it. Added stuffer and hydraulic trim nozzle etc. Looking forward to getting back from the painter & then putting all the pieces back together.

    The boat did not have seats in it so I've got to start from scratch. I've seen several pictures from earlier posts of some incredible looking seats. I need to get in touch with some other members to see if I can get dimensions etc so I can build the frames for front buckets and rear seats as well.

    Great joining this group. There are a LOT of AWESOME boats and boaters in this group!!
    Best regards,

    Magical Mike 58

    My first boat was a 1975 Apollo BBC. Bought it on Lamar Ave in Memphis in 1980. Why two bulkheads? I cut some 3/4 plywood on a tight fit between the stringers. Carpeted it. Had one bulkhead at the rear edge of the floorboard just in front of the engine. 1" hole drilled in the bottom of the bulkhead. Sardis or Pickwick?
