97 SeaArk 1872 Build

Post by erictetterton »

Well... after having just about every size tinboat out there, I have finally found a SeaArk superjon. Its an old NC wildlife boat that was auctioned off at a surplus sale. They used it to shuttle fourwheelers across the sound to the outer banks. its seen a lot of use but its still a good boat. SeaArk makes a great boat. It has a bunch of corrosion on the transom that im concerned about. I want to stop it and do a permanent fix. I have already sanded it down really good. I am thinking about painting the holes with self etching primer and putting fiberglass resin inside the holes, then priming and painting with rustoleum bottom paint from lowes. (Any suggestions to stopping this corrosion would be greatly appreciated).

Here's some pics of the boat the day i got it. I have since sold the 115 johnson... I want something a little newer and less hp.
Heres Pictures of some of the worst corrosion spots. From the water line stains in the stern of the boat, it appears that this boat sat with the plug in and water was halfway up the transom... leading to this corrosion problem
