    The same question, but I am more interested in buying this boat, even if it is broken.Since I repair them and use them myself or sell them. And it's not a problem for me to find some details, since I recently came across the scrap car prices website, where I can sell and buy what I need. So I'm just curious to know if you might have something that's already impossible to recover or if you're just too lazy to recover it. And I would buy it from you for the price you offer. Yes, I understand that this sounds stupid and not for this topic, but I will still wait for any answers.

    Well, I ended up covering the tunnel cut out from strake to strike with a piece of glassed plywood and the tied it into the hull with glass. She has been in use daily for about 6 months now. Was definitely worth everything I went through to complete it. With my honda 130 hp and 1500 lbs of fish she rides like a dream and runs 35 by GPS loaded. It was one heck of a learning experience. Pretty regularly, someone will stop me at a gas station and ask about it. Boats are just not made with the lines and ride this one has. The only straight lines in or on this boat are the floor that I put in it. The gunners and chine are sloped and rounded just enough to make it easy on the eyes, and very fast in the water. By the way, a huge thank you to all who inputted on this. Your help was greatly appreciated.
