Believe it or not I actually have been making some progress on the old Belmont. It has been very slow but steady. Here's a little teaser. Doing some mockup and Dy-Chem work, getting ready to machine the intake manifold top plate for 6 of these beauties😁

Hello. I know a lot of us have tried to re-flake a boat in our long list of boat projects. Most of us that have tried, swore that we would never attempt it again.
We have tried many methods...many guns...many mixing ratios..many intercoat clears for flakes...waited forever for clearcoats to...

The motor is in I added a new high torque starter, one wire marine alternator, Holley electric fuel pump, impeller, all new plumbing, valve covers serviced the vdrive and transmission and added all new led lights to the trailer with new bunks too.
So I have the transom wood all removed, most of it fell off.
The rot was incredible.
I cut the back 18" of the port stringer off, and am going to cut enough off the starboard stringer to make room for prepping and installing transom.
Questions! The transom plywood measures 1/2" thick...

All these hoses are hooked up the cooling system is all together. I got a little carried away because I had a bunch of used stuff and the boat was raced at Parker so it came with a bunch of NO 12 heavy duty stuff. Each one of those hoses is connected Somewhere to something else !!!!! Fuel rail...
