yeah it does look nice without the bridge. I would do it but I want the added room of the salon, but if I went with the hard top, I would not want to keep the sliding doors between the salon/cockpit.

hey man, good to hear your almost out of the woods.

the "C" word is a tough battle, and it hits close to home for me.

I wish you the best, I hope your recovery is swift, and you have time to enjoy your boat, and resume your normally scheduled life!

I will try that, thanks! I figured that if I can pull the cap I wont loose the actual shape of the cap, and I will be able to properly laminate into all of the corners. All of the penetrations would be taped from the outside prior to working, this would act as a cheater guide when reassembling the b...

unfortunately my roof is probably 80% saturated with water. I was looking at possibly removing the upper cap, flipping over and re-laminating it as if it was in the original mold. I removed the drip rail, and I have brakes int he seam on about 30% of this seam. I removed internal switch panel where ...

1 riser on each engine is rotted out on the bottom. I will be ordering 4 new ones soon, along with full gasket sets. I will be pulling the engines for full re-gasketing, cleaning and a new coat of paint over the winter. I am relived that they run as smooth as they did. While the engines are out, I w...

success! engines are running!!!!!

As the project continues, it has come time to start the old pigs up. The 360s havent run in somewere between 3 and 5 years. I pulled the plugs, sprayed some croil into the cylinders and let it sit overnight. I charged up some batteries and rolled the motors over with no plugs using the starters. I p...
