KoO
I've never built a boat before but wouldn't be easer and more cost effective to build new rather than re skinning an old hull ?

no this is the easy way out, the thought of building a boat from scrap would be a very long one. i would like to be in the water in a month's time if i get a chance to work on it.

Sure wish I could have re skinned the boats I have done from the top down instead of from the bottom up.

I like your "redneck" way of getting things done.

You might be a redneck if.....
you use and old axle and a forklift to haul your boat around.

KoO your new trailer looks a lot like one I have here. Mine is A 3/4 ton ford rear end 8 lug with 9.00X16" military tires. Should I check and see if mine ran away to the Great White North?lol
