Very pretty. Super transformation on the Hallett. Tell me it doesn't suck to have to bolt the tank supports through the bottom of the boat. :D

That is a major undertaking! Killer job so far. There are only a few brands worthy of putting that kind of time and money into a resto and Hallett is definately one of them.

Keep the pics coming and good luck, you are soooooo close to getting it wet!!

What year is the hull and how much power are you putting to it?
its a 76 hallett and the motor is just a stock bbc:D it is actually a 454 bored and stroked to 496 with dart pro 1 heads hyd roller cam with somewhere around 12.5 to 1 comp. i dont know for sure what it is putting out i will tell people it is around 375-425 hp , i appreciate the compliments on the fab work , my main obsession has been to keep it clean looking

Real nice looking boat.

Whats going on in this pic. is the aluminum plate there just to give you a flat surface or did it fet glassed to the boat? My bro has a panther and we have been comtemplating the berk switchover...We had contemplated filling the necessary space with aluminum...not sure if we will still go that way or not.

i was just using the flat aluminium to follow the shape of the keal , it was waxed so it came off real easy after the glass kicked off

that flame job looks great. I really like it. The tie down cleats inside the boat is a cool idea too. Really nice job on everything!
