Hi everyone been lerking around reading posts thought I should introduce myself. I'm josh I live outside Houston. Basically first time boat owner I just acquired a 78 220 the outside looks great needs a wash and the wood trim re finished. But a great looking boat. However that's where it ends. The floor is rotten and at least the rear stringers are also. Basically anything not covered by the hard top. The motor is a 188 mercruiser with what I believe is a alpha 1 gen 2 out drive. Was told motor was good but its full of water up to the intake. The cabin however seems untouched by time I wasn't looking for one this big but it fell in my lap for free. I'm a great mechanic and know wood work and fiberglass. repairing the floor and stringers seems fairly straight forward. Already see a few things I will do differently to seal the wood better as well as fiberglass over the whole floor when done. Basically I plan to strip almost every inch of this and restore it back close to original. As far as layout Plan to add a live well as I like to fish possibly two one for live bait. Will upgrade all electrical and new digital gauges. I'll be around asking question as well as posting some of the repairs. Thanks in advance for the help. PS how do photos work here?
