    Well anyone who has ever owned a boat will tell you that BOAT is short for...
    Bring
    Out
    Another
    Thousand

    I have jest started what I hope to be a quick and dirty refit of my boat.
    It was a working concern, however trimmed terribly, the instruments didn't work, none of the lights work, and has had a bunch of corners cut by its original owners. My son bought it but sold it to me
    untouched to put the money to another car.
    So far it owes me $1300 to buy it.
    And about $45 worth of timber and screws.
    I am hoping to get it done quickly for not much cost.
    Any boat Guru's watching will probably see glaring holes in my methods. Your advice is welcomed but if it costs me more $$ will probably get a, "Oh That's Nice" and be ignored :)

    Anyway.
    Here is the first round of happy snaps in its crappy state after I begun to strip out the old instruments, inner bed if you could call it that and wiring.

    Wow, looks nice,

    I've been on a boat before long time ago somewhere near Johor to Singapore.. The guy drove it very fast, it was very windy..
