I have just recently purchased a Nauset with an 1984 90 horse merc. with low hours. The boat runs well but has many cosmetic problems 1st. the wireing is just about gone. I need a paint job which I don't perceive as a major problem but the inside of the boat is a mess. The seat has been replaced with a cooler seat, the center consule has been remade with regular plywood I need to know who to call on this one. The interior although it doesn't have many stress cracks and is the origanal color needs to cleaned up very badly what could i use to do this. The bow railing has been welded many times and I need a new one. The transom seems to be in good shape we applied a lot of pressure when I went to purchase the boat and nothing happened any other suggestions on the transom. I don't know of anything else except I have the origonal wind screen but need to repair it with new rubber gaskets does anyone know were I might buy them. I need some suggestions from the pros.

Thanks for the information. What about the transon is their any other way of testing to see if it is alright not that it matters I have already purchased the boat but just for my peace of mind.

If you are worried about the transom, pull one of the engine mounting bolts off. Get an icepick and poke around in the hole. If there is rotten wood, you will soon know it. Get some good silicone to seal the hole back up before you reinstall the bolt. Good luck with your project, don't forget to take before and after photos...
