We just finished the "resto-mod" of a 1982 Ski Nautique. Among other goodies, she had a sub-woofer/separate amp and a 300+ HP 351 Windsor. Here's the web address of the Restoration Photo Log:

I mentioned my upholstery lady in another thread awhile ago. This boat has six seat cushions and an engine box. All the seats needed new 1/2" marine plywood and the engine box needed a little carpet. I provided a sheet of plywood and a carpet remnant but she did all the work and provided the material. Bottom line: $840...for high quality work at a very reasonable price. That's why I don't try to learn how to do upholstery! When in doubt, sub it out...but to the right person.

Well, my website crashed so the Restoration Photo Log is not currently available. For the record, WordPress sucks! Here's a photo of me bringing her in after the shakedown cruise. With the 300+ HP engine, this old girl really moves but I think she could use some more pitch to take advantage of the available power.

(If you click on the photo, it enlarges. I've been here for over two years and I just figured that out. DUH!)
