Handy Husband had purchased what I thought was a piece of junk years ago. It sat in our barnyard, surrounded by weeds, until we finally decided to tackle the job of fixing it up.
After removing the seats that we had decided on not keeping, we started general clean up and removal of the old hole patches.
The boat is an old aluminum, flat bottom boat.
It cleaned up rather nicely, and the old patches sanded off with just a bit of elbow grease.
Everything is smoothed and sanded.
We used a spray-on, liquid, rubber sealant on all rivets and seams.
The actual holes were patched using the rubber sealant as well as a mesh screen to help
cover the holes in. Several coats of rubber sealant will be needed on these areas.
That's as far as we got on this phase.
Stay tuned for the finished boat (hopefully soon!).
