    Well here she is, my next and final project boat. She's a 26' hurston. Over this fall and winter I'll be removing the fly bridge, gutting the whole thing, replacing the transom, stringers, floor and installing a pod

    Very nice choice in hull! I've been on wolfs and it rode through chop like it was glass on a lake.

    Wow………you picked a big one for your last project LOL

    Is this going to be a charter rig?

    Looking forward to see how your vision turns out, I would love to do something like this but I am positive I would be so upside down in it when it was done I would have to be buried in it:(

    I like what I see -the layout was what you see in most pilot house boats. Obviously you got a deal on it-nothing appears salvageable-maybe the stove? depends what it runs on -diesel? New Wallas's are extremely expensive-just a thought-often wished I had an oven. Good Luck-can't wait to watch this progress!!

    Very ambitious project and more than I would want to take on. My first restoration was a 12 foot fibreglass boat that my friends said I should not turn into a boat. They suggested I turn it into a "planter" . Name stuck to the day I sold it.
