    Default 81 Sport Restoration

    Hello All,

    I picked up an '81 Sport this past March. My son and I are just now in the process of rebuilding this rare old boat. 30 years of rot has left fiberglass shells of what once was the stringers. We already pulled the cap and started demo. Removing the mountain of foam in the bow so far has been the biggest pain.

    A couple of questions
    1. what was the thickness of the plywood used in the transom? Due to the rot I get varying measurements of 1/2" to 3/4"
    2. The ski pylon over time has rust welded itself together. I guessing I would need to cut it out and then replace. Has anyone found an aftermarket ski plyon replacement?
