We've all been working on removing the varnish and bottom paint. We'll start repair work next.

I've finished touching up and painting the bottom coats. We'll lower it off the gantry crane and start to reinstall the ceiling boards and engine. Gary taught me how to replace the water pump.

We've completed the final coat of varnish. We will re-whiten the top deck upholstery and start putting the re-chromed hardware back on next.
Jacks got all the new screws tightened and fastened. Now he's replacing a broken transom plank.

We took the Lyman out for a sea trial and everything went off without a hitch!

We've scraped away all the varnish on the top deck and now we've flipped the boats and started on bottom work.
We got all the clench nails done and sealed the new planks with a primer. Next, I'll tape off the water line and start painting the bottom coats.

We flipped the Ski Boat to strip all the bottom paint, and Jack is exposing the heads of each screw for re-torquing.

We received and installed the brand new fuel tank. Perfect fit!
Jack finished putting primer and a coat of bottom paint on this week.
Shane has varnished the ceiling boards, rub rails, coamings and seat risers.
We hope everyone had a restful holiday weekend. We're back and busy as ever!
Jack just got started on this one. He removed deck hardware, seats, fuel tank, engine, and is starting on transom repair.

We've got the deck hardware removed and now we're tackling ceiling boards, motor, seat backs, rub rails and props. Next we'll flip them and get started on bottom repair.
This week Shane installed the windshield, deck hatch, bilge pump, electrical, and some small hardware pieces.
Finishing up some keel repair before we're able to start repainting.
