        My only fear is the floor. Ideally, id raise the floor an inch or two to get better self-bailing. This has worked for a lot of people. But I need to be realistic with my budget and time frame. I think doing the transom, rear stringers, and rear floor should be plenty to make this strong and seaworty. Then I need to do fuel system, console, wiring, paint, and repower. Got plenty of expenses ahead.

        My plan was 2"-6" floor raise. depending on float test. The downfall is how low the sides will be or floor dead-rise.
        My take on time and money is you are there and already and spending a "dumpster load of money"..
        It wound be a shame to do paint and all and need to do something 2-5 years down the road and have to tear into what you already halfway re-did.
        So I am allowing 3-5 years on my total build.
        When I'm done with this build it should be DONE... unless I need to change something around. Tweak Design...

          My 69 had a steel 25-28 gallon tank under center console.
          I plan to keep it for Aux. and adding twin 25's under floor,. Had planned twin 60's but they got away/sold before I could go pick up.
          So, using what I have in hand right now. unless something else turns up.
          No highjack intended. Just confirming my 69 as well.
          Remember,. 69 was "some" of the first early Dino's Saurs.
