Thanks to this site for all the help in rescuing #10141 to some decree of new usefulness. I did raise the transom on it and here is the story and some pics. Feel free to use any part here.

ArizonaBill, a beautiful job! And now I am back to my quandary -- just this weekend I have been reviewing all of the re-gelcoat threads and building up entusiasm to do my Outrage 22, and now I see this! It just seems like paint (and of course the requisite prep work) makes the hulls look so shiny. Now I am debating again -- paint or gelcoat?

Again, a beautiful job!!

Hey "Capt. Bill"
Beautiful work, this should be an inspiration to others with old boats to clean them up or restore them. You did this little boat proud.

You did a wonderful restoration. Did you ever weigh the boat. Chain Saw Whaler suffered from problems from being in the water for long periods. Could yours have suffered the same fate.

Thanks for all the kind words.
With respect to the core, the boat sat in my backyard for three years. This is a very dry climate and summertime temperatures routinely are over 115 degrees. There were no core problems or delamination issues (I thouroughly checked for that).
What I was suprised about, that after so many years of standing rainwater there was no dryrot in the original transom core either. These boats are really something.

Hey Bill....pretty neat!

Keep us posted on what "comes up" after a job like this. by that I mean where(if any) cracks start creeping up or how well all the spiders stay away, etc. Will be neat to see how well restorations hold up in the short run.

Bill,

Great looking job, but only one problem I see, is that the starboard side decals are wrong...

If you want me to send you the correct picture of the port and starboard side decals, let me know

Bill,
Your website is very nicely done, and the restoration project of the 13-foot Whaler looks just great.

Many thanks for the kind words you lavish on the continousWave website, too.

Thanks for posting the link; it is great to see your work. It's a welcome addition to the gallery of restored Whalers.

Vinyl Works,
Whats wrong with the starboard side graphics?
The reason I ask is I think I did mine the same way.

Jimh,
Thanks for the kind words, I actually owe it to this site for the modivation to do it and the outstanding resources here.
Graphics: he meant the port side. I checked he is right and I had NO clue. Ordered right ones.

Ditto on what is wrong with the graphics ? Showing my ignorance agan, but what is wrong, or rather what is the correct orientation. If one is wrong, shouldn't they both be off ? I am about to put mine on, I assume that as long as I get the sticky side down they should be right...

On the starboard side they are correct note the word "Boston" is over the "w." On the port side the "boston" is also supposed to be over the "w" with the harpoon AFT of the "Boston" instead of forward of it as on the starboard side.

Great job!
Story is too familar. I paid $100.00 and most said I got taken. I been sanding for 3 weeks now and it seemed like there was no end but this site & your pics have gotten me re-motivated. I have to raise my transom as well. The inside was empty when I got the boat so I have gotten some great ideas including your approach. I hope my "finshed" pics look as good as yours!
Signed
Still Scratchin!
