Unfortunately, that appears to be where you have breached the depth (thickness) of the gel in that particular spot and the black is the material on the next layer. Remember, gel is sprayed into the mold first then the next layer of material.

Go easy on the heavy grit. I'd consider going to 800 and work with that to see how it does for you.

There is a distinct possibility that the gel could be oxidized all the way through (in some or all places).

Had the same thoughts, but I do wonder why I donít see any in the gray gel. Sanded evenly in another area and the gray stays clean.

Dash wiring done: every connector and 95% of wires are new. New switches, fuse holders, Ign switch, and a handful of new gauges. still need to tidy it up with wire ties, but other than that, itís resdy for a test.

Probably my first point of advice on any of these type projects...the willingness to get in and jump on it...no hesitations on cutting, prying, modifying, drilling, or anything else to talk one's self out of doing the work.

There is nothing that can't be corrected or resurrected on these old floaters.

Success. Used the boat a few times this weekend. Worked well. Clean instrument cluster and fresh switches and fuses helped, and I found a bad ground at the engine that was giving me hell as well.

I donít mind the noise of the boat, but itís got old mufflers and itís loud. Weíre trying to get a course permit, so the next area of concern is getting some new mufflers and some additional inline stainless silencers.

Last night took me from dirty bilge to new mufflers. Ran it on the hose a bit and did some timing adjustment and carb idle mixture tuning.

I have to ask....did you fix the oil leak?

Bilge looks good and the mufflers are a good call. But the dirty bilge looks like many I have seen where the dirty deposits are likely from an oil leak...engine or transmission seal, etc.

It's coming around....new carpet will set it off just fine. Wait until last for the install. It's an easy install. Keep your carpet in tact as much as possible for a template...makes the new install much easier.

I see you have the sliding hinges on the engine cover.

Both valve covers were leaking so they got new gaskets and cleaned up. The transmission leaks a little bit as well, over the winter Iím going to pull the drivetrain, along with just about everything else, and start the real restoration. Right now, just trying to keep it skiable!
