    Alright, well i guess an update is overdue...

    I reinforced underneath the cap where i intend to bolt in the tower. I cut to fit a piece of wood, then epoxied & clamped it into position. Then I came back and smoothed the edges with fillets and glassed it in with 2 layers of 1702.

    Here's a shot of the underside of the cap, with just the wood expoxied in, before fillets & glassing.


    I didn't have the right clamping setup, so I had to improvise.

    Repaired / rebuilt the seat bases..

    Basically all of them were completely shot except for 2 where I was able to patch in just the corners that were rotted out. Here's an example of one where the corner was patched



    Built a new sun deck...i really need to consider getting more clamps.



    Here is the finished sun deck and a sneak peak at the color scheme for the upholstery.

    Got the upholstery done for the bow playpen area. I think it turned out pretty decent for it being the very first time I've done any upholstery work.







    It will look even better once the cap is good and cleaned.

    Slowly I'm starting to have more boat parts in the boat, than in the basement

    Couple of more seat bottoms complete





    1st stab at the carpet around the seat base, hopefully the next ones will turn out better.



    Luckily you can't see too much of the crappy carpet job when it's all dressed out.

    I still have to go back with a hidem strip, and mount the seats in the boat but otherwise done!

    Wow Coose - it's been a while. Thanks for the update and it's good to see that you're still making progress. I would assume that your goal is to be on the water this summer. How's the engine coming?

    Hey TitanTn, Yes I'm targetting this summer for sure, hopefully sometime in the next month or so.

    The engine is coming along, I should have a couple pics to share in the next day or two.

    This was a great read being that I'm looking at buying an 86 Saltare with soft spots in the floor. Keep it coming cause I plan on following this till splash down
