Nine Minutes to Four.
before anyone asks why i'm starting another project when the gt lies waiting for attention,let me state that this one was started way,way before the triumph.
i'm just finally getting to the end run on this one.that's how my projects go sometimes.
i was given this some years ago,and at free,i wasn't sure if i'd gotten the better side of the deal.
well,i love a challenge.it was to be my first boat.
while it cleaned up ok,i didn't like the huge engine well and kick-up at the back,so it got some surgery lovin.
after rearranging some bits,the back was a bit more streamlined.now,about that orange color
played around a bit and came up with a red i liked.that,with white on the hull made for a good combination.
i wasn't really excited about the original windshield,so when a guy offered me the old windshield from his bayliner after i'd made a new fiberglass hardtop for it,i thought i just may be able to make it work.
to make it fit i had to remove the center bar,increase the angle at the middle,and reshape the side panels.but,there it is.now i need to do more fiberglass work to blend it in.
and some gellin'
and the old girl's looking pretty good.
but,of course.....i'm not one to leave 'good enough' as good enough.
more to come.
just the facts,ma,am-joe friday
