    Well at the 1st. of the year I will be starting a very big project that is pretty close to my Heart. I have owned a Brendella 19 Tunnel V-Drive for 26 Years. I restored it back in 92-93. Loved the Boat and never thought I would ever sell it. I did to a good friend of mine that is paying me to do...

    I love holidays! No one works which means I can get some work done. Spent New Year's day rolling around in the Schiada trying to get rid of the diseased wood. In my first thread I mentioned that we thought this hull was set up as an I/O then converted to an outboard. After getting down through...

    Hey Fellas I was wondering whats worth saving and whats not. IMO all wingers need saved no matter how bad of shape minus the hull is in 20 pieces!!!! My boat had been sitting in guys back yard uncovered for almost 10 years. It needed everything, and still needs a ton of work. But in less than...

    A guy called in and said he had a nice Rogers with a trailer that needed " a little love"..... lol When he showed up at the shop I could barely believe it made it home with out leaving the boat on the road around Barstow.. The frame had literally been broken in half and patched back...

    After on and off searching for a clean Executive for years, I found this one 400 miles from So Cal last summer. This boat has 260 hours on it. It has the rare, for this era, power package of a 454 and Bravo outdrive. I can't believe the popular power for this boat was a small block and a jet...

    Well I've been meaning to do this for a while, so here goes. It's a 77 Sanger Circle Runner formerly owned by my Uncle and been in family for 20 or so years . He was the greatest guy you would ever meet and my Hero . Unfortunately he passed a couple years ago and I have ended up with it. It is a...

    Thought some may be interested. A little project we picked up for Resurrection Marine.com out of a little town in Pennsylvania. Been sitting in the weeds for decades. Pretty much everything has to be rebuilt or replaced. Should be done in a couple months. Already made some progress just waiting...

    Anyone know much about these boats? I saw one at the lake. Looked like it performed quite well actually. I have a Vee Bottom VDrive. I forget the exact length. Its 18-20' It has chines on it like a Rogers, hooked with about a 3" flat surface on them. Has a cap similar to a Biesemeyer (if thats...

    Hi all. We have decided to start a thread on our last minute speed boat project. 5 of us decided 1.5 weeks ago that it would be fun to buy a speed boat for our Newquay trip on the 6th of august (just over a week away now). To cut a long story short, after looking at many, we won this on eBay, a...

    Does anybody have any tips on how I can restore the shine to the Blue metalflake accents on my boat. I am very fond of the boat and want it to SHINE if it is possible. The interior is in nice shape and I think hull should follow along. Also I would like to try and find a Rogers badge in decent...

    78 Brendella Restoration Here's a resto of our boat. It's so close to being done (if there is such a thing) that I'm gonna have to find a new hobby. We picked up this 78 18’ Brendella in Oregon about 5 years ago as a bit of a basket case. It had a stock big block Chev and a Panther pump. It’s...

    I have a 1979 16ft Cobra Jet with a berkeley JE pump. The jet is fitted with a diverter. I was wondering if that is a good hull design and good model pump. The boat had a 396 that was junk so I'm starting to build a blown 454 for it. The blower is off a 6v-92 detroit. Its being upfitted by a...
