    Default Starting a boat restoration project

    Howdy everyone. I am going to be starting a restoration on an old boat I picked up this winter. I figure on starting on it around March or whenever the weather allows. I was wondering if ya'll would be interested in seeing pics of it in the various stages and if so could someone tell me where it would be best to post them?

    Yes, I know I would like to see your project. Place your posts concerning this project under the "Boats and Motors" sub section of this forum.

    I will start on the boat as soon as our weather here in MO warms up. Mo being Mo I may get a few odd days here and there but I imagine late March or early April will be when the weather will warm up and stay warm. I will be posting all of this in the Boats and Motors section. God Bless All. Dave

    Have you considered what you're going to purchase? I've recently replaced the carpet and side leather in an older boat. There's some stuff I would recommend and some stuff that I wouldn't use again. I also added many layers of epoxy resin for waterproofing and reinforcement near the back end support for the motor.

    If I were you I'd make a post detailing your boat and what it's made of, what you plan to rebuild, etc. Just to get an idea of what you might be looking for.


    Just a thought.
