First Boat /project 16ft Aluminum (Starcraft)

looks like the other brace on your seat is a pop rivet. easy to use. when I did mine I used pop rivets where it wasnt really a structural element. And used solid rivets for things like the z brace that the transom wood sits in. https://www.forum.tinboats.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=36664&hilit=open+sta...

GoneFishin - quite the opposite...... Spar varnishes are typically designed to not only protect the wood, but also give it the flexibility and UV protection it needs to last for years. And the name “spar" varnish comes from the boating world, where, on a sailboat, the long wooden poles that support...

One thing with spar is it needs to be covered i believe. As in not uv resistant. So where ever you use it it should be painted, vynled or carpeted.

I used spar urethane. I meesed up though and sealed them then glued them together. You want to glue them together and then seal them.

Dang near the boat as mine. 16 ft star craft ss. Wish i did the ski locker when i had mine gutted for additional storage. Once you have yours gutted you can see you stringer layout and go from there. Find a lid on c list and frame in a box. Most use aluminum. And there you go.

Nice size john boat you got. When replacing any wood make sure you do not put any pressure treated wood in there. Its not friendly to aluminum! use good exterior grade sealed with Spar or other means!

That pop rivet gun with the mandrel catcher is a great Idea for these boats. When I removed my knee brace I found a clump of rusted ones under it. Who knows how many are under the ribs! Good choice there!

Nice boat to start with. That circle near the light makes me think it may have had trailer guides if there is the same thing on the other side of the trailer?

Got the motor on and tiller installed. It wasnt a direct fit though. Had to make a bracket for it go on. That still needs work and the key ignition needs wiring in still. Work is on hold I think until I can buy everything I need to get the rest done in one shot.
