Hey all. Im new to the site and new to wingers. I picked up 1986 TX-19 and have been in the process of bringing it back from the graveyard. Its nice to see some semi local wingers. I live in South East Kansas. In my home town we have a several wingers in the small town i live in. Last me and my buddie counted was 7.
Well about my boat. I picked it up about a month and half ago down in Tulsa Ok. I was lucky enoughto be the first caller and the guy let me have it. The deal took about 5 days which had me worried i was going to lose it. The boat was in total disrepair. The transom was trash along with half of the stringers. Paint was gone. Trailer is in bad shape and the rubber terrrible. Pump was in fairly good shape but needed pulled and sealed up. I put a new Transom in, 2/3 of the stringers, new gunel supports, few coats of primer, glassed the tanks back in, ect ect ect. This has been a fun exsperinence building it. Just about everything in this thing is new.Gauges, Feul fills, wiring, seals, and diverter. Picked my motor up last friday and its coming along. I should be ready for a test run this weekend if not next week and hope to be on the lake Memerial Day at my local lake with my fellow wingers.
