    My buddy and I recently bought an old K boat that was named "War Eagle" K-777. We plan to build an SE or 100 MPH class boat with it. It is in the glass shop getting the hull pretty much totally rebuilt. We are getting new floors and are in need of some stuff so we can cut holes in the bottom...

    Hey everyone, I've been reading and searching away for quite some time to learn as much as I can about rigging my 69 and still have a couple questions I could use more clarity on. Story on the boat is that I bought it from a co-worker of mine who's family changed it over from a drag boat to a...

    January 2016---No better way to start the year off than to start a full "cosmetic" restoration of my 1968 Steven's 17 foot wood deck v-drive!. I've been dialing in the "hardwear" and engine over the last 2 years & the boat has been a lot of fun.--- But it kinda looks like one of those classic...

    Just bought this 63 Stevens...I know some of you on here know this boat.

    I bought a 68 nova with the intent to restomod it with a 540 I have. Once I got the car and started to decode everything it was originally a 327/ 275 horse with a 3 speed on the column.

    A little while ago I acquired a boat known only to the buddy that I bought it from as a '69 Sea Ray. All I knew is that it was 18 feet, had a Chevy 350, an OMC outdrive, and had some cool lines to it (in my opinon). The fiberglass was solid. I could tell before I bought it that the transom...

    Any suggestions on how to take my boat off the trailer and leave it on blocks while I restore my Panther Trailer? Leaving it in the water is not a option. I will be having the trailer acid dipped to remove any and all rust, then it will be zink dipped. After that I will be painting it. I...

    I am in the process of restoring a Rayson Craft 18.6' which I have owned since 1970. I am replacing the original Aeromarine Thoroughbred V drive with a 12 degree Casale split case. I have had to move the v drive aft because the tail is shorter than the Aeromarine. Has anyone come up with a "jig"...

    I am moving UP-DOWN to the restoration of a Molinari 17' tunnel. The boat is apparently one of 6 that Medury brought to the US in 1960. The boat is in good shape, considering it has been outside for years. I need pictures. I will have to build a rear cowling, after replacing the transom...
