  • Hey Wilson Ayala

    We haven't heard from you in quite some time. Have you quite on the boat? How about an update?[]

      Sorry boys, Iv'e been caught up in school lately. I need to get some pics to you, Eddie. I Painted the boat with awlgrip and it came out great. I was busy using it and too lazy to send those pics. That deck came out alright, but I wasn't overjoyed with it so I am stripping off the gel coat and want to paint with awlgrip.

      I am starting to look into a transom job. Eddies was so damn good! Lots of work to be done, but not as much time and money. It is seeming sort of overwhelming right now so I have been avoiding it.

      Warthog is your boat still on this site?

          I came close and sometimes it feels like I did, but where should I mail the pics, directly to Eddie or to the "webmaster" or are they still one in the same as I suspect?

              The webmaster and I are one in the same. Although, I'm really quite the amature webmaster, but I make do.

              The above listed e-mail is fine. You can also mail to [email protected]

                  Yeah, you were a huge help, thanks again.

                  Finally got off my butt and sent Eddie those pics.

                  Once you start to figure it out its not that bad, just takes time. I'm doing things one at a time, unlike you. Trying to use the thing between restoration projects

                    Nothing wrong with that. You will not get burn out that way. HeHe

                    Does your boat have the grid system in the bildge?

                      Not sure what you mean by "grid system". I think it looks similar to that, but the bilge is not something that I have yet gone through very well. It is coming up, I'm just a little timid about getting that deep in.

                        All that white fiberglass is a stringer grid. I know you can't see very much of it looking thru the inspection hatch that we talked about. The motor is in the way to get your head down there to look in.

                        The floor in that grid system is not the bottom of the boat. There is about a 1 to 1 1/2in space there and it may or may not have foam there.

                        They stuch that grid in the boat and cut 2in holes in the top part of the stringers. They then poured it full of foam. The foam may have not got all the way to that area in a liquid state.

                        When I steped on that area after the floor was out it oil canned on me and I throught I had a delamination. I cut inspection holes thru the floor part of it to see what was going on. That's where I also drilled a 1/4in pilothole thru the bottom of the boat. HeHe

                        That grid was also used for the engine mounts for an I/O.

                          So I would probably have to have the floor out in order to see that, right?

                            Yes, but you should be able to tell something about it thru the hatch.

                              Hey Wilson, Can you give me some proformance numbers with your boat?

                              I'm thinking of 2- 115hp Suzuli's for mine.
