    Main bottoms are 3'' high density foam with 1/2 '' added it the front for leg support. My wife has been sewing since high school I build the seat frames and do the
    stretching and stapling. We have been doing this for years and have gotten better at it. It is very labor intensive and the cost of materials has skyrocketed. Its truly a labor of love I would never want to do it for a living.

    Awesome job on the restoration Michael. Going back with the rainbow color scheme is the way to go! My wife and I did the same on our 88 comp when we did a cap off stringer job back in 2020. Keep up the great work!

    Maiden voyage. After the engine was installed we had a little setback. The red stream of oil coming from the bell housing said it all. Trans had to come back out. I ordered the new front seal 4 days later they delivered the wrong seal. The good news was I was able to get the number off the old seal. Thanks to Napa I had the right one in less than a day. So yesterday we put it in the water and when wife put it in reverse to back off the trailer it went forward. I installed the wrong prop I currently have 9 boats and its getting hard to tell what's what anymore . So a quick switch and we are on the way . The boat ran out beautiful . The oil gauge , fuel gauge , tach and both speedo's are dead I will check them out today.
