Progress report in my '79 Vector

Post by TNRIVERRAT » Apr 16, 2012 6:28 pm

Just a few pictures of whats done so far. Waiting on some stuff from Express Composites right now so have a couple day break :up: then back at it. Need to thank 265mercman for all his help so far not too much longer and we'll be :boating:

Here's the day I got her home. Good project alot of the hard stuff was done.

All the core around stringers was already done along with new stringers and transom. Needed the float boxes removed and the core underneath replaced.
Image

The float boxes were a whole bunch of fun :lol:

Now as it sits this afternoon waiting on some materials :up: Hope to be putting floor in it by the first of the week. But when the boat gets done got to rebuild the 2.4 200 thats going on the back ;) Shooting for around June 26th for completion. Would be a great birthday present to myself :D
