    Thats too bad. Yeah, I seen the pics of it when it had the big goofy knees on it and goofy seat and nasty paint. Thats a shame after seeing the work you put in to it. I dont plan to sell the Vulture ever or in anytime in the foreseeable future but that why I would have a hard time selling something I put so much work and time into. My luck some dummy would buy it or end up with it and it would cross my path later in life and make me really sad if it was neglected or half ass rigged together with no cares given. lol

    In the process of leveling and squaring the boat and adding 4 more bunks under it to support it for wood replacement. The previous owner bought it from a guy who apparently painted and rigged it without checking for rot. When he found out the transom flexed, he sold the boat. I am pretty sure it will all be rotten. I had asked a question about whether Allison filled the shoebox joint on these boats on the Allison Owners site but I think I got the answer laying under the boat installing the new bunks. The nice new paint appears to be automotive base/clear with gray primer under it. I'm gonna stick my neck out before I grind on this filler and bet that it turns out to be pink Bondo. Looks like I don't get to save this paint work after all...

    Got the splashwell removed and enough floor out to check core near the transom, tapping sounds solid. I'll drill to be certain but don't have anything to fill with and working outdoors I will wait until I can seal it back up. Transom, floor and three out of five stringers are toast, no worse than expected. If I could just get the weather to cooperate....

    Yes the weather has not been nice. It's either to cold to work, or raining.

    You do have a great head start. Spring "will" get here.....
