Ordered carburetor rebuild kit and gaskets. Its time for some open carb surgery! mmm, the sweet smell of carb cleaner (fyi its super toxic)
found a couple of soft spots in the floor of the boat, but most of its good. Worried that the spots may lead to some structural weakness. Going to add a plywood deck on top of org deck. (the deck is covered in a thin layer of fiberglass so it not easy to simply replace) Thinking that a sandwich of new deck screwed together to the soild parts of the old deck will tie everything back into one solid structure.
found new marine carpet (8' wide) for $6.75/ft. but the online color samples are poor. need to stop over to their warehouse and look for myself
Trying to source good 5/8 or 3/4 AB exterior grade plywood. youngblood lumber looks promising.
edit-EEP! over $50 buck for 1/2, didn't even have the heart to ask about 3/4. Guess I am going with cheaper home depot 3/4 AC exterior @ $34. I am all for quality/longevity, but I need 8 sheets total and dont need the plywood to outlast the fiberglass shell
