OMG, Gorgeous work.
Thank you for sharing.
Post kids are cool,
I'm heading to the marina to throw rocks at mine.......
How about chips and spilled beer. No Post deserves rocks.
Been a while since I posted an update on the restore, scratched off a few wish list items this spring/summer: Starting with port/starboard fish-boxes:
Nice. Is the bach deck balsa cored on a 75 ?
Fish-boxes in use (kinda), at least you get the scale:
Got the Props redone on a quick haul out and installed underwater LEDs and new thru-hull sounder:
Installed new Axiom 12 PRO:
And got a buddy to build me new mezzanine/cockpit cushions:
Now, just got to finish up the starboard tackle center and install additional tackle center/garbage bin underneath the mezzanine seating and the cockpit is done. I might get to that this winter.
Fantastic work, Daniel, I would dream to be at the same stage... How did it take you overall?
I'm almost at the 3 year mark in the project. But, I have been using it after the second summer into the project
I remember when i cut it back in late April this year that is was ply, but looking at the pics again it looks like balsa.
Balsa in the deck???
For some reason it does not look like ply in the photo, here is a closeup:
Looks like balsa to me.
Any wood or plate where the fish chair would go?
Looking good! I know my buddy's '79 had balsa cored deck. We replaced lots of rot under the fighting chair.
I grew up on a 75 42' and the cockpit deck was just teak planking over framing. No fiberglass liner. I think that has all been replaced since the factory build. Only fiberglass on ours was the hull, bridge sides and helm station.
