i got the boat today and it is a 1968 sea king 12' "v" hull. i took the boat out on the canal today and it has a few small leaks: down the edge where the hull meets the starboard piece of aluminum and in the front where the "v" is. other than that the boat is great! I dont know how im gonna modify it because its not really wide in the back, but its only 12' so if yall have any ideas im open to them.
