    Well, the boys and I have been at every weekend in March except this one. Here is what we found so far, 9 broken ribs, 4 on port, 5 on stbd, 2 broken hull planks on stbd, A couple bashed up hull planks port aft, those I think I can fix and not replace, scuff marks in the paint on port no biggie, and oh yes the transom is screwed. I think thats it I think. here are the pictures I have so far.

    Your spring-time will not be boring, will it?
    You have your work cut out for you, but the boat looks worth the effort.
    Good luck and thanks for sharing the photos.

    Got back from the boat and yet another very productive weekend about an hour ago. We got all the rib sistering done just have to get the new hull planking done and we will plug everything at once. We did however find 3 more broken ribs stbd mid ship it looks like they were broke for A while, those I will do laminated bends. We also found 5 more broken hull planks. Here are the pictures.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement guys. So far everything is going smooth, even the weather seems to have been cooperating. I just hope my luck holds out, I still want to replace the transom. Oh and she's on the schedule to be re-splashed at the end of April.

    Getting A little closer now, got the final 4 ribs bent in and the remaining broken hull planks cut out, there were 6 total all on stbd side. I ended up lucking out and got another Pacemaker for parts and planks and so the planks went right in. Here are some updated pictures. Hey look I finally got in A picture, it's the back of my head but it doesn't happen often, usually I'm taking the pictures.

    Good looking project and nice to see how it is done as not all of us have these kind of boats to play with. It would be interesting to know, how she came to have that much damage?

    Well here is an update Y'all. My 2012 season has officially started!!!
    Last spring all went cording to plan, we got her all put back together and got put on the schedule for splash on July 4th morning at 10. the idiot marina owner actually showed up on time and drove the truck I did the set up on the trailer. I backed him up and set the pads right on the lift points, I mean I nailed it you couldn't get it anymore perfect of A pick, I told him to not touch anything till I get back, I am going to the launch to make sure were clear and set up some cords for the back up pumps I would be back in 10 minutes,,, that said I went to do my thing and when I came back 10 min later she was sitting crooked on the trailer, while I was gone he managed to break her all to hell. He never took into consideration that when I set her in fall for the repairs on the bow I had him set her bow down so I could reach everything. when he picked her up that morning he lifted level and put all of the weiggt of the hull on the 2 rear jack stands and the one on the port side blasted right through the hull and she almost rolled off the truck. Well needless to say, I LOST IT!!! ALMOST CHOKED HIM TO DEATH, and packed up my stuff and left, I decided to just wait to go back when I calmed down enough to see him and not want to make him swim with the fishes which ended up being November. I went up to winterize, and clean her up. THEN I get A letter in the mail and BAZINGA! THE IDIOT LOST THE MARINA!! the bank foreclosed on him and resold it to 3 guys that are actually trying to help me, they gave me winter for fee and are helping me out any way they can. I went up again 2 weekends ago, got A solid material list and were off and running already. This spring will consist of A new transom 21 new ribs and 10 hull planks and beefing up the lift points just to make the new marina owners A bit more comfortable.
    Here is A photo for your viewing enjoyment.
