So I haven't worked on my bubble deck in months due to the last incident. I had a good river weekend and came home motivated to work on the boat. I'm less than a minute into it I screw something up. I took it apart to rebuild it right but everytime I put my hands on it I'm just making things worse. I'm just about ready to throw in the towel on this jet boat till next year. Maybe I need to just drop it off somewhere and pay. Rant over.

OK, I give up. Those of you that know me, Im not saying what I did this time...
I think the best thing will be to take the boat somewhere and have some things done as my small budget allows. Looking for some shop recommendations to have small holes in the gel coat repaired, holes in the stringers filled and glassed, maybe color sand and polish. Also need a recommendation for a Berkeley rebuild. I'll post more later but lets start with these.

2nd GS Marine. My Dad's first CP was rigged by him in 83'. Since then we've both had stuff done by Greg. Never been disappointed with the craftsmanship, quality or value for the money spent.

Very close to you now in Norco.

did you screw the boat down to the trailer???

We've all made mistakes, it's from being in a rush, you wanna get done for summer. Just relax and try again the next day.

With a boat it's always one step forward 3 steps back and just when you think your done, well guess again, you never are. Good luck.
