BVI Balistic 7.8 rebuild

Hi Folks, here's a hurricane IRMA survivor, but only just!
New stringers, new floor, new Henshaw tube, a surviving Yamaha 250 and ready for action again!
The story follows.

The low down and dirty.
Pre Irma damage/problems were a sun-baked
royal blue tube (it only lasted 5 yrs) and a rotten floor.
Post Irma damage was a twisted gantry, other SS damage, screen gone and every electrical component blasted by 200mph winds laden with salt. Some hull damage but these hulls are tough! Once the floors were up every bit of plywood was found to be saturated and rotten, apart from the transom. The plywood floor goes right out to the rails, so any fix involves removing the tube coamings.
Here you go.

Nicely done. Is this an ex-Necker Ballistic?
