Already started prepping today at Bass pro.
Going to make the 250 mile trip back to my parents to pick it up in a couple weeks.
Thanks for the help guys. ...

Wow, that is almost the same boat. What year is that?

| Money Talk|| re: Have you ever taken a significant pay cut for another job? - lilsnappa on 2/27/14 at 11:34 am|
I'm thinking about taking a dramatic pay cut as well right now. As much as 40-50% to be home and sleep in my own bed every night.
It would only be for 12-14 months, though, and then I could probably get back to my current income, but it's still a hard pill to swallow....

The more I research, the more I think I'd be in way over my head if I started tearing the transom apart trying to convert to a center console. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Boat restoration/refurb advice - lilsnappa on 2/26/14 at 5:09 pm|
Yeah, other than the transom the boat is very solid, just worn from years and years of use. I've done some work on the transom a couple years ago and its solid enough now to get me around.
I would love to put in all new wiring, steering, and completely restore the entire console as the current s...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Boat restoration/refurb advice - lilsnappa on 2/26/14 at 10:18 am|
Thanks fishfighter, my plan is to work on it as much as I can over the next 2-3 months and at least get it so I can at least be on the water a little this summer. After that, I want to find a professional and get it completely restored, maybe even converting it back to a CC.
It could potentially...

Thanks PP, I will check it out.
And that picture is about 4 years old. I've put probably another 50 hrs on the motor since then and it was still running the last time I took it out.

Oh I definitely will. This boat has a good story to tell, so I plan to keep it forever, which is why I want to get it completely refurbed and updated.
It was built by my Grandpa's brother, a man by the name of Leonard Hughes who is pretty well known in the NHRA ...

I don't have the time, tools or experience to do this correctly.
| Outdoor Board|| Boat restoration/refurb advice - lilsnappa on 2/25/14 at 2:39 pm|
So I have an 1983 17ft. McKee Craft Southporter. It was my grandpa's boat that he had custom built and kept until 5 years ago when he gave it to me. It was the last thing he did before he passed away so needless to say it has quite a bit a sentimental value to me.
I've kept it up the best I can ...
