Board - Original Condition

The board and engine were in pretty sad condition, but it the engine did turn over and was almost complete. There were many areas where the hull had slightly corroded so that small holes were visible. We played around with the idea of getting them welded in but the idea of the internal foam and the heat of welding seemed like a bad idea.


Someone had decided to paint the entire board from the original orange to a metallic blue. The bottom was painted primer grey and some of the small holes in the deck had been filled badly with bondo. The entire jet drive was filled with leaves and cob webs, and I really can't even guess at the last time it ran.
