I am calling the paint done, need to touch up some areas on splash well. Not happy with it but it looks good needs a good wet sanding maybe this spring. Also received my flotation foam.

Okay people need some help please, see photos below. There is a lip on sides of the boat that removes,
Does the wood set on the lip or under? The wood I removed was so rotten I couldn't tell.

Based on holes I think the wood go under the lip.

Probably the top but I would go by whether or not it contacts the two runners in the middle.

Poured one side of foam, I will have about twice the amount of flotation versus what was in it to start.

I just bought a 1987 Blue Fin 17' Fish and Ski with a 1995 60hp Mercury. I just started stripping her out for new flooring and transom, Also changing it to center console...

Was the pour-in foam pretty easy to do? I'm in the process of redoing the floor on my 1986 SeaNymph 16ft and removed a bunch of the waterlogged foam as well. I'm trying to decide what to replace the foam with.

Sorry I been missing but life happens. As King Solomon say "there is a time for everything".. I got my boat about 75 percent complete, enough to take the kids fishing four times.

I epoxy covered the wood decking both side so water shouldn't be a problem, tossed in some carpet, new tires on the trailer, and wheel bearings.... Still need seats, navigation lights, wiring, and four seats ( boat is rated for five people, and 50 hp). Need to paint transform inside... ah well I am on the water!!!

Seems like a lot of boat for a 15hp motor. Great job on the build though. Is that a 15 inch transom or 20 inch?

It's a 20 inch transom. Yes, I was hoping to get a 25 HP Yamaha or Honda but this one popped up on c-list and was a good buy and in great shape. I'll still keep looking for a larger one as the boat is rated for 50 HP. I did remove alot of weight since I no longer have console and upper deck framing.
