Purchased this last month. Since then I've been working on refurbishing the trailer.

Seller even had the original brochure.

Once I finish with the trailer, the whole thing goes into the garage as a winter project. Front deck, rear and side storage, rod locker, livewell...the works.

With the trailer done and the boat in the garage now - the 'destruction' begins.

Using the cargo strap to make sure the hull doesn't bow outward...did the same when I modified the canoe that preceded this.

Close to being done setting the feet. To keep them in line bow-to-stern, I'm using my 'long straight edge'. Set the foremost one, set the rearmost one, place the straight edge between those and set the rest against the straight edge...and they all line up.

Feet installed - working on the main runs for the subfloor now. Right side is done and riveted in place, almost done with the left...couple more risers to rivet then the main run to be cut to length and riveted.

There was a short hiatus while the wife was in the hospital...she's home now and I'm getting back to this.

Main runs done and once I have the cross-braces in it'll be time to set up for the pour-foam.
