well it's been 6 weeks and i am just about finished with my boat repairs. had some leaks when i had to drag it on a concrete ramp last fall. so with the changing patterens i deciced to fix her back up again. had my trolling motor fixed at de-shields and the only thing left is the painting of the bottom hull from my repairs. paint should be here tomorrow. i know the boat is old [43 yeras] but it still has plenty of years left in here. now i just need to get back to fishing. tite lines JIM.B

Sounds like you are getting her seaworthy. Is it fiberglass?

it's a old tide craft and yes it is fiberglass. the top section turned out great. i just hope there are no more leaks because this is the last time i'm going to redo her. this time it was not a total redo but will have almost 40 hrs on repairs. looks new again.

too funny..... I like to refer to it as the bathtub, if ya ever see it youll see why. but its one sweet boat... Id fish it anyday, fast as heck! Did you paint over that pretty piece of mahogany you used for the transom? Sure was a nice piece of wood
