Looking forward to seeing the result.

The fun part starts after you get done with the messy glue stuff.

I took mine apart (to fix cavitation issue) & have to reglue it too.

Good luck!

Its been cold but it started warming up the last couple of weeks. Started working on the JJ again. Got the ski insert trimmed and the hole cut in the hull. Just waiting for it to get a little warmer so I can start gluing and glassing. I'll get some pics up soon.

It goes faster once the structure is together.

Nice!! 8) The engine and the pump is the hardest part. Once you get those components installed, it's smooth sailing from there.

So I got let go from my job= no money to put into the boat
Started my own landscaping company = all extra time + all extra money going back into the business
Summary, I havent touched the boat in months. I am at the point that I need some tig welding done but just don't have the money right now. Once I get that done I should be able to chug along at the rest as far as getting it operational. The fit and finish will have to wait until the financial situation improves.
