How about some photos?... hard to make any suggestions in respect to line of text. Personally, my view is that every resto includes some level of mods, though I prefer these do not affect the lines of the boat, with the exception of the necessity for some to increase transom height. I also feel that color is of no matter, but changing the lines isn't something I would do. I made plenty of changes below the skin to increase transom strength and longevity of Bandit.
Hmmmmm, Chris Brown and a G3. Sounds logical! A bit over due but a very good thing none the less. Glad to help any way we can Chris. Will you do a feature with updates of your work on Seabuddyonboats.com Of course we want you to post some pictures here to. We love Pictures.
I know how long you have wanted this. I think it's great.
Welcome aboard Chris.
Happy New Year Sir and welcome back to the website!
Glad to hear you got a G-3 and plan to restore it! Like Dean and Al, I look forward to your posts and pictures. What color is the boat now and what kind of shape is it in?
Like Dean and Al, I will also be glad to help you in anyway I can.
As you know, our G-3 did not require as much work as Dean and Al's did or even our friend Mike D. But, it did take me awhile and I did learn alot from doing it. I agree with Dean on not messing with the natural lines of the G-3, but raising the transom I think is alright being that all the new outboards have 20" lower units.
