    Here it is at home




    Not sure what this means exactly but it is posted on the hard top of the boat







    Are these steps a factory step?

    Still has some cool gp gauges.





    The rudder vision!




    302 fwc motor, turns over but no spark




    Found some newer fuel tanks in the boat. 2 side mount 25 gals each and a 50 gal main tank

    That decal is strange- not seen something like that before. On the dash one switch is labeled "strobe light" does it have a "strobe light"?

    I will seriously take the fish corner shelf!

    Pictures of rotten wood stringer boats are like birth control for people wanting to buy them.

    Years ago the State of WA had a buy back program of commercial licensed fishing boats to reduce the pressure on the fishery. It may have been an outgrowth of the Boldt decision awarding a portion of t he catch to natives. The idea was if you bought a boat out of this program it could not get a commercial license.
    JJ I'm sure you will get your $300 back even after subtracting dump fees.

    The dump fees won't be too bad compared to the rebuild. Unless I die and my wife throws the boat away I plan to rebuild it.

    Binford you're slipping! I know you've used this one before:



    Google came up with more graphic versions but this being a family site and all...

    Maybe I'm one of the crazies, but I can see a really nice boat in all that mess. Is it the same model as our new member Moonraker's boat?

    I've got a 21 and it's an '88. I read through this forum enough prior to my purchase to realize that I didn't have the cajones to take on a project like jjc23 is getting into.

    Good choice! I thought id never buy another wood stringer glasply but i let a 23 go a few years ago and ever since then i decided the next cheap 23 im buying, so here it is. I have no imediate plan to restore it i need to finish the other 2 i have. In the end im sure it will be more $ to fix this then to buy a newer fiberglass stringer boat but at least ill know everything about it.

    You and me both, brother. You've got to be an idealistic young buck like Josh to take on a task like this, but if anybody can do it, he can. Josh, I'm thinking we'll see this baby at the Glasply Rendezvous in -- what, 2015? I'll look forward to seeing the photos that document your progress!

    If all goes as planned which it never does, next year ill bring my other 19, then in 2015 my 21 then 2016 the 23 or a center consol 21. Thats a lot of work tho so probably wont happen.
