    I totally remember that dual-trailer setup! I always wondered what it would be like to tow that rig.
    Very cool boat project there - keep us updated on your progress. That one looks like it will be fantastic.

    We did some tapping and poking around in there and it appears to be. No visible damage ...

    It's not very thick. Barely 1 1/2". Thinkin I might beef it up inboard with a piece of material behind the new stringers and knees. Figure that should prevent any problems?

    Got her almost all cleaned up:

    Got the knees cut out, ready to laminate. Need to pick up some resin tomorrow.

    Many thanks to Dago for the 3/8" Nidacore. Three 2 x 4 sheets and one with a tiny rectangle off of one corner. More than enough for the floor and to beef up the transom. Much appreciated Mike!!

    Looks like I have plenty of biax and mat. WooHoo!

    Sadly not. Was goin good til I wound up in the hospital again with this friggin diverticulitis.

    The C500 is in my buddy's shop now. This boat is next.

    Did scrounge up a running '79 flat back 115 w/good compression. Need to go through it and add my spare bubble butt exhaust, etc. That'll go on the Baja after we swap my 140 over to this one.

    Oh sorry to hear you been in the hospital. hope everything goes ok for you.
    will the bubble back exhaust make much difference to the motor ? I mean is this a very noticeable gain ?

    I know the difference to look at, but never realy got into knowing exactly what is inside them.
    My friend has a1977 Johnson 140 model ML77s that has the bubble back and the special tuner, I had the Johnson 85hp flat back.
    also know its a pain to do the thermostats with the bubble in the way !!
