I has this thread on the other not to be named site so I figured I would put the info here instead. I bought this 22-2 Mod V from a guy here local. He bought it from a person in Miami and so the saga begins. Here are the photos of when I got it home and before I started my Demo.

Photos of the transom area and cap ring.
That is the boss in the corner checking out my progress and saying what the heck did you get yourself into

Image

Image

It has the original Lee's rod holders along with the original Lee's outrigger holders.

Image

Image

The disks you see on the ring cap were installed from factory should the owner ever want to install a bow rail. No holes under it and they were never welded on. Pretty cool.

It appears that the prior owner put in a below deck livewell in front of the bulkhead in front of the fuel tank. There was blue gelcoat inside and this high speed water pick up. This thing is pretty cool.

You can see the blue in the lower right of this picture.

Stringers were cracked in this area and there was wood in the smaller one. Port

Ok, got the hull sides braced up and level on the trailer. Due to the transom skin being so thin, I just gut it out and did the entire grinding for prep. Will be doing a complete new skin with 1 1/2" Coosa Bluewater 26
Image

Get it into my grandfathers garage. Put up a damm, make sure everything is square again. Wax, wax, wax, oh did I mention to wax the board

The entire boat will be rebuilt using 2 to 1 Us Composite Epoxy When you buy in 30 plus gals, it is only around $39 a gal. For Vinyl Ester in 5gal cost break down is 35.9. Not to bad of a difference and I don't want to deal with secondary bonding issues due to my lack of prep should a screw something up and not get it just right. People have their opinions as to using Poly, Vinyl Ester, etc. I screw up so much that I try to limit it where I can :1898_: When I go to build the pieces that are built off the boat, (deck, transom cap, etc) and installed later, I might build them out of Vinyl Ester then tab in place with epoxy.

I put in the 2 layers of 1708 with 6" overlap. I will be putting 3 more layers on the outside. First against the hull will be the 1708 and the last 2 will be 1700 no mat. Might do a 4th of just cloth to help with fairing but not sure yet.

Well, my grandfather had to have me move the boat prior to the transom glass being finished getting hard. Caused me a little issue at the bottom, Nothing that a little mixture of cabosil and epoxy won't fix.

Now it's time to fit the Coosa. Here are the steps. Make template outside, cut template. Install template inside, remove and trim to fit. Reinstall mark, remove trim. Do this till you loose your mind, then do it some more :753_hammer_hitting_head: Now when template fits just right, move it over to the Coosa. Mark and cut outside. The dust that is made really is not good for you and will go everywhere. Put in new transom, a realize the template is a thin peace and you need to cut the bevel to match the hull. So back to the mark, remove cut, reinstall, steps till you again loose your mind. :1898_:

Image

Image
But when done, it fits really good. Install put a fillet of homemade peanut butter all around the edges filling the gaps.

Prior to installing the core, I marked and drilled holes to hold the clamping braces. Once done, I spread a nice layer of homemade peanut butter with a notched trowel on the new inner skin. Put a layer of epoxy on the inside coosa as well. Installed the core and the braces. Tightened the braces and let it sit. Also tabbed in to hold in place.

Let it sit for a few days and found a hollow spot where I didn't clamp to well. I will drill a hole, and fill with epoxy.

Image

Image

As for the bubbles, I put in a little peanut butter and will cover with 2 more layers of outside glass.

Casting deck removed and can see the stringers much better up front. If anyone wants it let me know. You just have to come get it.
Image

Image

This picture you can see the damage pretty good and where the below deck well was
Image

This should have been a clue as to what laid in store for me

I picked up this 90 gal belly tank from Marine Contractors Liquidators on the east coast for a nice price. $3.00 a gal and 50 for sender. It will fit perfect and go with what I have planned for this boat.

Now comes the remainder of the demo with a few surprises.

Stringers anyone
Image

Image

Image

Image

Under each stringer were tubes made of fiberglass as to take up space but nothing more. It was a single layer of roven.

Remember the smaller stringers up front. Well here is the shot of the wood inside and it appears original
Image

All cleaned out and ready for grinding and inspection

I have the boat off the trailer, leveled, squared and braced. This will help with the repairs of the damaged area and making sure all fits in nice so no issues in the future.
