Default Finishing up my latest Off-Roader Project

I was given the remains of a boat and trailer 12 years ago. I parked it out back and let it become overgrown. Then in August of 2019 I decided to restore it. Because I'm... Reserector.


I have posted the thread on other forums, so if that interests you, here is a link: https://mississippi-mud.com/thread-20480.html


Here are some before pics:











Here is a walk-around video that I just did the other day (4/14/21) It is almost ready to go in the water. Just a handful o things to finish up

It needed EVERYTHING refurbished or replaced. I did all of the work myself with the exception of some of the heavy lifting.
Enjoy!

I don't know how to make it show up as a YouTube thumbnail, but please click the link. It's really short and will blow your mind.

There were some good trees going on there.

Good for you. I probably would have repurposed it as a doghouse. lol

So, is she sea-worthy now or still have more to do?

Just a few things left. Minor stuff. I should have ti ready to launch in a couple of weeks or so. Getting kind of nervous to be honest.

WOW! That looks like lotsa work!!! (worked for Bayliner Valdosta, 40+ years ago) Nice job!



LOL:: OH, had my earbuds in when watching and heard the quad running, in the background. Thought it was "here". Oops...

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.
