Very pleased, just flipped hull and mocked up the rubrail. 

Trying to decide if I want to build a polling platform or not.

Still have to cut and Interlux / Roll & Tip the false floor, may wrap both sections with a high end outdoor carpet to resemble the look / color of teak?

Thinking about having two custom cushions made, quick dri foam, white track on the front with a hidden zipper on the rear. 

I want to stay away from snaps etc.  Im trying to keep a very clean look.

So far so good! 

Decided to run the bottom coat up 1/4 inch above the mahogany wrap to prevent spray from working its way under the wrap. 

Seems to have worked well.

Prepped and installed the first coat of interior non-skid, hope to have the final coat on tonight. 

Next will be installing the rub-rail, bow cap and then put a finish coat on the bottom.

Here is the hull-sides after removing the numbers and remaining adhesive.





Next I had this really spontaneous idea to do the hull-sides in Wood Grain.  Don't ask...





It showed up today and here is a quick tease...

Decided to sweeten up the o'l 13 Gheenoe / RiverHawk... Previously it had a trolling motor and used in various millponds etc.

After a few weeks of looking for a nice two stroke 15 inch tiller I somehow scored.  Given the size, weight and lack of torque down low of a four stroke the decision was easy.

I've been a big Yamaha fan for a long time and purchased a brand new 1993 6hp.







Don't ask me how, but the engine is new...  As a precaution I serviced the carb, jets and float etc. reassembled and she fired right up on the second pull. 





Next I have a few ideas on the exterior, so here is where we came from and where we're headed...




This is a quick test run of the engine after I did the carb and prior to disassembling the boat for the refit...





Drilled out all the rivets to remove the rub-rail, sanded, acetone'd and applied spray on bed liner.





Sprayed now only waiting some drying time!
