I'd like to do that one of these days.

Of course, not having a wife or kids, would mean that I'd have to take it out and play...

Did you have any issues with the bolts on the inside that held the flange that clamped down the inside skirt of the tubes? If so what do you plan to go back with??

Hi Ryan,

Did a search and found this dead thread. Did you ever finish this build?

I have the same boat and am going to start refurbishing it in may. Interested to know what issues you had with the floor (was it wooden and rotten?) and what the structure underneath looks like.

-Mark

on the shelf

i put this project on hold as the entire floor was done! i need to put in a all new floor and it was just more work for the boat than i thought it was worth. So i have put it on the shelf. not sure if i will ever make it back to that build.
