      Idk what is wrong with me.

      $500 Sleekcraft SST, twin tunnel, ModVP race boat. I go into the history of ModVP racing, why it was so dangerous and the marine equivalent to Group B rally, and start tearing into this complete basketcase. I did all this stuff on my Aristocrat, so I know what I'm getting into. If you don't know how to FG, follow along. It's messy, nasty, sticky work, but it doesn't cost much and it's pretty easy to do. Boat restos > way easier than cars. No rust. No suspension.

      Will post updates here since you guys dig fast ****.

      Wow! That is an ambitious project! Cool boat. That hull definitely looks like something you could get yourself in trouble with.

      My Dad and I restored a 38’ sailboat many years ago, including a bunch of epoxy work on the hull and rebuilding the rudder. None of that is fun.

      What's it have for a motor? I got my hands once on a Mirage race boat with an Evinrude 6 cylinder looper race motor that hand all kinds of custom land and sea billet parts, flywheel, dual spark plug cylinder heads 12" mid housing. Thing was a monster to say the least.
