What have you guys got planned for your tugs before summer?

I am flipping the boat in the next few weeks, Sand the Sides of the hull, Bottom of the hull have some cracks repaired, Glass over the Wooden Keel, Take the old Bungs out and get some new style Bungs in there.
Then respray the old girl, it has been over 30 years since its last spray.

Sort out some mountings at the front for the tower my brother in law is making.

Repaint the Floors, and re carpet, And change the Rear Seating arrangement to cover the fattys.

Thought you all may like to see what we achieved in an afternoon.
Still needs to be welded, probably about 3 hours worth.
Not to bad for Under $300 including all materials.

Cheers guys,

I have just brought some Fusion Marine 7Inch Coaxial Speakers for the tower, and a small Sound stream amp to put some juice into them.
We have made our own Stainless speaker pods and are still deciding on the mounting system.
I am going to individually switch the sub amp, boat speaker amp, and tower amp. So depending on the mood etc we can flick them on or off on the dash.


I took the boat off the trailer again and pulled the motor off, as i was wanting some cracking looked at on the hull of the boat.
My boat builder decided that it was most likely caused by an old trailer which was setup wrong.
The keel was in a bad way from the roller system and he told me that the timber/Ultra 5000 that they use in truck liners to make hot asphalt slide off with ease would be the key.
So as you can see in the pics below the rollers have basically gone to give the boat even weight distribution on the keel to stop odd pressures hurting the keel further.
Also he reckons it will slide off 10x better than the rollers.

New windows are ready to go in and i have almost finished a light sand on all the varnish for a few quick coats of protection.
