Make it pretty.

Gunnels are pretty well done. I'll post more pics later. Now it is time to make it pretty. I pulled the motor off and put it on a stand I built:
You can just make out the ghost flames. Put it in water, made sure it was running, and deiced it will need a tune up shortly. Pulled the boat off of the trailer, and flipped it over (by myself). Had the wife help get it on the saw horses. Man it is ugly.
Spent 2 hours this morning sanding it. Under the black anti-foul paint is a couple dozen mollusks of some kind. Somebody in the past didn't clean it up. Just painted over it. Must have been kept in the water for a while.
