Anyone want to see my new fix-er-up-er?

  1. Late 1970s 23' Mako Inboard. Believe it's a Mako 236. Don't know specifics on this yet.

    Floor is rotten most of the way around. Deck is rotten. Motor runs, but looks like it needs help. Maybe I had beer goggles on when I decided to take this on, but it's going to be a great Erie boat when I'm all done. It came from saltwater (ugh). It is amazing what that stuff can do to a boat when it's not cared for.

    I've had it for a while now, but just really getting started on the rebuild. Took all the hardware off the deck and all the teak that was still in good shape when I picked it up last winter. Now comes all the glasswork.
