I bought this boat about 10 year ago and have used it sporadically as row boat. I had the opportunity to pick up a few cheap 6 hp outboards and decided that I would spend some time and money to get it fixed up and looking good.
In my prior use of the boat, it had leaked a little. So before I plan to spend some long days on the water I decided to look into how to seal the rivets.
In my research I found a repair kit that Cabelas used to sell that utilized a 3M product called Scotchkote 226p. In some other forums it had great reviews. Problem is, its no longer available for sale. I ended up having to buy a 5 pound box of the stuff for $160 opposed to a small $7.99 kit. My plan is to sell the rest on ebay to recoup my investment
Now with the boat all sealed up, I plan to repaint it. I want to keep the original paint scheme but I plan to paint it blue and white instead of red and white. I contacted a vendor on ebay to make custom Lone Star emblems that are the same height and length of the current script painted on the boat.
