I just wanted to say thanks to jimh and all who make this website so informative and interesting.
I just finished my restoration on my 1959 13' sport. (Seriously, are we ever really finished?)
New Awlgrip paint inside and out. New thwart seats, steering cables and rub rail.
Fixed up the old console, cleaned and buffed up the old steering cowl,norman pins, and bow light. stripped and repainted the original Kainer steering wheel. Put my tired old '56 30 hp Evinrude back on. fixed my trailer(was a roller trailer, now with bunks), and in about a half an hour I'm leaving work to go drop it in the water for the first time in 5 years.
I showed the finished boat to my Dad last Sunday and I swear I could see a little tear in his eye, it was his Fathers boat and I'm sure a lot of memories came flooding back.
P.S. I had been spending just about every waking moment for the last three weeks trying to get it ready for the Fourth of July and I was sitting in my boat, on the trailer, in the back yard Saturday night after just having finished putting on some final touches, and my wife walked out of the house and said it looked great. I said thanks but theres just one thing wrong... She asked what that was?... I said it's to small, we need a bigger one.
I think you can imagine how that went over!!!
