Thanks for the feedback Jeff.
I haven't bought this one yet, and I might not still. If it were just floors needed, and cosmetic, then I would go for it, but I really am saving up for the RB18 build so I don't want to take on a "money pit" that pushes that project off further.

Also, I don't know what is going on with the pictures. If, and when, I start a new project I'll be sure to work out the bugs. Sorry for the confusion everyone. I know how you like your pictures...

jtdums, I am not saying the project will be a "money pit" but the problem is with these re-builds is you can never know how bad it is until you really start tearing it apart. I would bet it will require stringers and a transom and that will require labor and reasonable building supplies!! In the end, I love those old boats and remember them on the lakes in GA!! Let us know what you decide!! Have a good holiday weekend, Jeff

Save yourself the headaches of tearing apart a POS boat and build a new stitch and glue one. A lot less work IMHO.

Tom

Make sure it isn't a balsa cored hull. That is a waste of time if core rotten.

I had a '74 Starfire that found the landfill. Core gone.
