It's about time for an update. I no longer have a hole in the transom. Next step is to start in on the deck. Or flip it over and work on the bottom. I have to remove the leftovers from the transmission cover and make a box of some sort to hide fuel filters in. I think I might use the existing structure rather than making a whole new box like other people have. Maybe cut out the green sections and build in the black with a big hatch in it.

I'm still thinking about grades of Al for the engine bracket but haven't gotten the quote for the 5052 yet.

Oh, and I got it registered with the DMV!!! Only took three trips to the office but they were actually very helpful. The trailer still needs some more official blessing and I have a trip to the CHP for some new stickers next week.

I also have a ex-Navy owned boat with just a bill of sale. Could you go into the details of your successful registration process.

Cheers

I got my boat from Government liquidation. Initially (trip #1) the DMV told me they couldn't register the boat without a form SF97. They did, however, do all the DMV paperwork for the registration but told me to come back with the SF97 to make it active. I requested an SF97 from GL (for $60) and they sent me an SF97 for the trailer and a notarized bill of sale and transfer of title for the the boat (all for $80). Perhaps I got lucky but the next person I talked to was perfectly happy with new forms and completed the registration process. But I had registered the boat in mine and my wife's name and the GL documentation was only in my name so I had to get my wife to sign the transfer of title from me to us hence the third trip when they finally gave me my stickers and CF number .

My fourth trip back was for the trailer's required visual inspection, which it failed, because the safety stickers are unreadable. Also there is a sticker that is supposed to have a second VIN number on it, also unreadable. I have an appointment with the CHP to get new stickers then I can go back to the DMV to finish there.

All for a trailer I am probably not going to keep and isn't worth anything but I need to be able to move it around.

So I have heard that being in a small town the DMV people are a lot nicer and more helpful. We can still walk into the DMV and be seen in a very short time so that might be true. YMMV

until I can flip the hull to work on that I am finding other things to do, like the console. It doesn't need to be so big since there isn't an engine under it.

I plan on adding some storage, relocate battery switch, and make the front flip open like a few others do so I can access under there for electrical work and storage below.

Next will be a new rear deck hopefully with a big hatch in it.

Yes but "soft" neoprene looking tubes I looked for a wing id but didn't see one. The hull looked to be fiberglass. The deck layout looks to be upgraded from the the porn seats to suspension ones and its using the radar from the 11 meters not the usual 24 mile radome. If i got Any closer they would have had to clean up the drool..
