Just kidding. Heres the real one. Its my friend pauls boat. 81 Miller 21ft mini day. 454 and a panther. Im hoping to have a thread like 78nordics where we document the build hopefully as well as he did. It needs a TON of work but its mostly there. It looks like it needs stringers but i wont know till i get the carpet up. Many pics to come and the teardown starts tomaro. He got the boat from a tweeker(obviously) so we got our work cutout for us. What would you guys say this thing is or could be worth in nice shape? All opinions are always apreciated but if its a negative opinion you can go kick rocks. Heres the pics from today

I've tried calling miller a few times but no response. I'm pulling the motor this week so we can gut it and do a major clean up and polish everything. We picked up new carpet and seat foam today and new seat frames are on the agenda aswell.

Call Tom at Jet boat performance, he has some experience with these boats. Miller makes a very quality product. I have an 19 foot miller and love it.

Whats up dude, I cant find your number but next time your near sacramento i welded up an 11" brace for your trailer so we can cut the temp one off and fix it up good and paint it. My neighbor has a pond that he runs a lil peddle boat around in and he said we could launch your boat in it while we work on the trailer.

The boat looks like it will be alot of fun and alot of work. My buddy that owns it is going thru some really bad shiat right now so were gunna get it ready to roll and probably sell it and the suburban that he tows it with. Im heading to the fabric store this morning to get some material for the seats and the new foam then it will be time for some serious tear out.

I was cleaning all the junk outta the boat and i saw this. The light spots all have daylight coming through. Is this a bad patch job or is it nuthing to worry about?
