Well, I am almost done. Finaly.

I had the T-top powder coated to match the leaning post and it should look great.

Not bad look'in for a 1976 Beachcraft.

tim,

the wood is just temporary, the old supports didn't provide the propper support to rebuild. The trailer is for sale if anyone is interested. I plan on purchacing a newer trailer, must have brakes.

Thanks for the comments guys.

It would be great if there was some type of Bateau boat show get together so we could see all of the great boats that have been built and rebuilt. I would like to see some of the other jobs people have done in person.
Thank's

Andy

Great (First Class) Work! Did you ever determine the original builder? ...somewhat resembles an old Seabird, an older very solid hull, built mainly in the 70's, I believe out of Florida. They built some 21's and 24's.
