So I bought this boat with a 55hp Chevrolet motor and the Tee Nee trailer in 1996 in Hamburg, NY for $700. I launched it at Bemus Point on Chautauqua Lake, NY about 5 times with friends. Then I parked it at my parents house since a few weeks ago when my Dad insisted I pull it out of the weeds. I brought it to my house and decided to bring it back to life. The motor was mouse infested so I just pulled that off and put it on a pallet. I am no expert and just teaching myself here. I never plan to sell the boat so everything I do is just so my lady friend and I can enjoy taking it out on the water soon.
Now it is time to separate the two parts. I used a jack to lift the back part up. I also needed to hammer a piece of wood to separate the epoxy between the fiberglass top and seat connected to the bottom.
I had to angle grind the fiberglass around this part
