Hey man! Looking great so far!

 

Also in the process of restoring my ‘87 375v, too!

Ordered my carpet material and now I’m just waiting on that, before I get my Marine board and build a new deck and recarpet everything!

Central CA native here as well!

 

Keep up the good work and keep us posted!

That's a slick looking boat, looks pretty good already, good luck. 

 

Hit me up if you ever go to the Delta.

It's been a while since the last update. However, new season brings new things:

 

List of addition/changes:
-Changed carpet color and density. Didn't like the color before, plus I didn't like the job I did. This time it's much cleaner.
-The old seats were on their last legs. Bought new seats.
-Rebuilt the casting deck. Last year, I just wanted something functional. This year, I wanted to make something that operated and looked better

-Added keel guard

-fixed electric choke switch, had to bypass a wire

-Rivet nutted the holes where control box attached to hull. I had used a bolt and some gorilla glue for attachment. Definitely not ideal. Rivet nuts are great. 

-rebuilt carbs, changed impeller, some various gaskets

-replaced glove box lock

-wrapped wires and cables with nylon cable sleeves

-Added a hot foot

-Fixed some minor wiring issues. Fuses that needed replacing, incorrect connections etc.

-Replaced trailer suspension. this was a pain in the rear. Conceptually, not hard. Physically, a pain in the ass. 

-Finally bought a pedestal for the rear. Help a fishing partner out. 

-Bought a flush bag. Can I say these things are so freaking overpriced. $215 for some plastic canvas material and pvc pipe. Utterly ridiculous. I had to do it because my motor won't flush on muffs, and it's not possible for me to drive to a body of water on demand. It needs water to be above the impeller. And it is nice to be able to properly adjust the motor as you need proper back pressure. Still though....way overpriced. 

 

I can say that this boat is close to 100% as anybody can make it. So naturally, me being a restless m fer, I had to find something to do. And that would be console dash. I bought a switch panel and new gauges and a sheet of abs plastic. Want to modernize it a little. Some of the switches are finicky anyways. Might as well go 100. I would LOVE to have a digital tachometer. I know how many pulses my motor shoots out. With a potentiometer and some resistors I should be able to make any tach work. I'll save this for sometime later. It's time to fish.
