MY friend (my tow ho too and one of my best buds) bought this jet, had new stringers scabbed in, Put a motor in it, then brought it to my shop to plumb and rig, new cables, etc, after some thought (about two seconds) I decided he was getting a new subfloor ImageUploadedByTapatalk1361460402.917026.jpg

Then as u can see I noticed the stringers were Mia under the glass completely rotten so they got cut out

Well he got a deal on the boat, so I told him we could get it going, affordably complete budget build, using all my spare parts, which is good and kinda bad, some I probably would of saved forever or never used, plus giving to a good friend so he can make some noise in the water, plus fun bitching at him

what the heck is this? looks like you torched it...

I wanted to torch it...a few times, to date my toughest time with a glass job, just wont cooperate the way I wanted and was not up to par, my buddy said "eff it" "it will be fine" but I couldnt stand it, cut and sanded, reapplied and sanded and the carpet down.
Seats and fuel and he will be water worthy...i think....

Let me see if I understand this. You don't have time to work on your race boat buy do have time to work on a raised Titanic?

Must be good practice for rent house repair. :p

Good politics there. Make sure he has the pit setup and the beer cold by the time you get there in your private jet or Ferrari.
