Default My latest project

back in February a guy on the ODT put this old boat on there for free, I agreed to take it if he delivered it ,, and he did!!!. its a 170 Henry O , it was made in NC by Henry O McKee of the famous McKee craft family. it was a dual console foam filled hull like a Boston whaler or McKee craft. When I got it , it was in really bad shape, had been stripped and abandoned and left out under a big oak tree. I only got the hull and hatches, I decided to restore it and make a center console for the coast. Ive slowly been working on it for the last few months, after a ton of repairing holes, cracks and fiberglass damage, , filling, sanding , priming , and cleaning, and a ship load of hours she went to My painter buddy yesterday, I picked her up today and she turned out beautiful,
Now it time to start putting he back together. Ive got a 90hp Johnson , a console, trolling motor, bimini top and a bunch of other stuff to go on it . heres a few pics of the project

pecking away at the list.....in the past week n a half Ive got..... the rub rail installed, the running lights, cockpit lights and bilge pump installed and wired, I also installed the front bow eye, cleats, and front deck with hatch door
Yesterday I picked up the 50qt cooler seat I ordered and set it in the boat to see how it fit and its the perfect size!
I came home today and the new steering system was settin on the porch, Ive been waiting on it so I can install it in the console and then get it mounted in the boat. heres a few photos of the progress
