    last Pictures. Now the work begins. Today, I sprayed the Port side down with a bleach mixure to kill the mold. Then sprayed it down with hull cleaner. Tomorrow I will start buffing. We found out the three hatches on the bow will need to be replaced. They are Taylor hatches. West Marine has them listed:

    The large Hatch: $499.99
    Two smaller hatches: $359 ea.

    Any suggestions were I can find them cheaper?

    Excellent! Should be a little more comfortable than the wooly for those long trips!

    We bought the trailer in Tampa and the Boat in Jacksonville. For the few years it will be at my folks, then we will ship it via tractor trailer to Seattle for the long ride north!

    What an adventure!

    Smile New Experience

    working with fiberglass and not aluminum. I have to take it easy with the rubbing compound!!

    Still haven't figured out the head yet!

    I put bilge cleaner in it yesterday. Everything is different than a jet boat.
