That's amazing, from the first picture they looked like a lost cause.

The boat looks great so far.

A lot of work and a few good men go a long way!

They sure have, our tub guy is really good. He fixed all the leaks and reconditioned them then we painted them yellow and we have some good looking tubes now for a grate price.

Starting up on this one again.

Ok, sorry i have been focusing on the Willard 730 for a while but im back on the 640. I made a new starboard insert today to cover the old cutouts in the dash. Dash layout in the days to come.

Sorry No.

If we had a hull we could make one for you but im not sure the strakes are the same on the 733 and the willard. Since we extend the strakes into the bracket we need to match the hull.

733 transom extention

Thanks for the up date ryan on your build. Been wondering how it has been going. Currently rebuilding a 640 and have gone a slightly different route. On the 733 extention, I would suggest contaction Robert Fouder at Sea Master Services, in Dartmouth Nova Scotia, rfunder@seamasters.ca. He has a source in that area that makes up aluminum brackets for ribs. He is very familiar with 733"s.

That would be more turn key!

Aluminum is great for brackets, but i prefer fiberglass and since i have such a great glass guy that is our preferred method. Armstrong brackets is just down the street from us so if we wanted aluminum we would have a great option. But fiberglass is my friend.

640 Project

Clearly you have a great glass guy. Your project is looking awesome. Tom was on earlier and he is from the maritimes, looking for a 733 extention, so thought Robert Funder might be of some help with to him. Just got a call from Armstrong today to say my extention was ready to ship. Any suggestions on who I might get to ship it from your area. I am in Ontario Canada. Thanks for any help.

Both options are just that...

I would just get Armstrong to ship straight from their factory. If you have issues with that for some reason let me know and i can help arrange shipping for you.
