This is my personal project.  I got it for a good price not running.  
I have rebuilt the motor. Buffed the hull redone all the teat reupholstered
everythng and added bolsters.
Change the canvas to teal to match the hull.
Rewired everthing  instuments and lights.
New switches and fuse panel
Almost ready but I have to bottom paint and change the gas sender and oil sender

Then the real fun will come with chartplotters and stereo Ect.  
I almost forgot to mention she's a 1982


Right on Mike! Looks nice! Teal rocks! Are you going to sell it or use it?

Just needs some dingle balls around the T top.

planning on using it. its all set for lifting on davits wich i have a set here/ id like to get a lift when i can and maybe a comfy cruing boat. then again this one may be all i need .  the way boat sale are is why i got a great deal if i wait till prises go up i could probly make a decent profit, but then what ever i replaced it with would cost more also. i sold my last boat a 32 baliner due to a 10' brigge to get to my dock it was worth it for a guy in texas to come get it .
thanks btw


I hear you about boat prices. We're getting an awful lot of customers bringing boats up from the states. More than I can count. 3 good customers brought up 50'+ boats this year. 48' was the biggest local I've seen till this year. Crazy though, since they all want to be put inside heated for the winter. They tell me that starts at 10 grand. In-out and heat. Yikes! I guess there's still money somewhere!

Yours seems like a sensible boat. Really, how big do you need? Not like the fish'll care. Are you far from the open water? Must be nice to be on the canal. I'd like to dig one here. Not sure the town would like it though.

I the red dot  10 mins at headway and I'm in the open water of the harbor then the gulf of Mexico.
Here some  info on The area


Looks really nice, Mike!  I like that you bothered to get the name embroidered on the seat and coaming bolsters.  I need to find someone around here that has access to the trademarked logos for doing that kind of work.  So, what's next?  Going to add Peppy's dingle-balls  8)

Thanks June I found a grafics place here that did them all three for $35.
Nice now Incan offer it extra also already did a glacial bay with logos.
No dingle balls I think peppy bought all the teal around. ;)
