Thanks for the rersponse, I think I will be looking into installing the keel guard. As for the year of my boat it is a 92.
I was wondering why my post has been moved? Did I post in the wrong place? thanks
Scott

er.. actually the lump you can see on the inside is not where the console is fastened. It is two of these trays under the deck of the searider. One in front and one just forward of the transom. These are (at least in my boat) filled with foam. They are just glassed to the hull and deck. What had happened on my boat was that the grp between the trays and the deck had cracked. Water seeping into the deck, and rotting deck as a result. The raised part in the deck is actually a plywood pate glassed under the upper grp of the deck.

This is the boat right before it went in to get the inside painted. Also included is a pic showing the contraption we used to flip the boat right side up again. It bolted right to my transom using the motor holes and then we were able to lift it up with a fork lift and tune it like a chicken over a campfire. I wish I had been able to take a pic of that. I also through a picture of a nice copuple of motors ....a little big for my boat though.

finally

Boat is finished painting and back at my house. I will be installing the motor again this weekend and then start thinking about what I am going to do for a seat and a frame.. I still have to install the keel guard when It gets warm again. Didnt get to do it when the boat was upside down. too bad..
I hope these pics can help someone out. Feel free to ask me any questions you have. as I finish up the boat I will post more pics.
