This is a 1986 Ozark - donated to my non profit. The donor - requested I not only take kids fishing but make the boat capable of also taking them Bowfishing.
After digging into this project - it turned into a full restoration. The transom was toast. The floor was toast. I thought I was going to be able to save the front deck and part of the floor but after further review the entire inside of the boat had to go.
Once I reached that point after about a week of steady research, demo, clean up and more demo - I split the boat, finished most of the demo and discovered the - what I would call the super structure or floor support system - was delaminating and poorly constructed from the factory.
I'm at the point of finishing 'THE GRIND' - and so looking forward to that.
