    Ahoy, just picked up this baby in the beginning of August and thought I would share a few photos. Would love ideas, tips, and especially any leads on getting my hands on some flexiteek or nuteek in rolls that I can install myself, I am having a heck of a time finding any. Also looking for a 390 swim platform if anyone is trying to get rid of one or can advise on building my own from wood (to be sealed and treated of course etc).

    We gutted everything, have finished the floors in the salon, began the refinishing of the galley and ripped all the horrid carpet and headliner nonsense out that was glued to damn near everything Before pic). Engines and hull are rock solid, just installed a new transmission on the starboard side.

    Anyhoo, just figured I would ask this fine community for input since you guys know much more about these boats than I do at this point (bit i reserve the right to get smarter).

    Cheers, hope everyones having a great end of summer.

    Thanks mate. I have a quote from them (approx 3k all said and done). And price aside, I kind or like the classic wood look however. Has anyone seen a swim platform made of a synthetic wood material like that which folks build decks out of etc? Seems that it could be an interesting solution (albeit a tad heavy), or redwood?. Or if snyone has a lead on a salvage boat I could buy the swim platform off of, I am open to that for sure as well.

    I would add make sure those windows are bedded and sealed so leaks don't ruin your interior work.
