Hey all, went to the dump today and got rid of 370lbs of transom, stringer debris and galley items, I would say there is at least another 200lbs left to be removed and disposed of...

No motors or legs,was being prepped for a pod but backed off. It looked good in the pictures,should be a simple job if there's no rot to deal with.What are the odds on that?

I paid 9k for mine with no engines and I thought I got a good deal. It was in pretty good shape though. If that one isn’t rotten it’s a steal. Just need another 50k to get it ready for the water haha.

Want to save money on Epoxy and cloth? Ultralux Plastics in Richmond near the casino.
I was told that it is not advised to use epoxy over resin, maybe it's different now?
Nice work!

Well hello to all... hope everyone is doing well!

Update: I just spent a week working in the Vancouver area and had an opportunity to run around and collect my pre-purchases which include the command bridge, 2106 scotty's, prop touch-up at Percision Propeller and even bought an unplanned 2015 Road Runner 6500 capacity trailer with elec/hydr disc breaks.
