  1. Tuffishooker, For your reading pleasure and education: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_of_materials
  2. DavidA, thanks... I have an extensive BOM for this project. However at the wife’s strong suggestion I have decided to hold off until spring when the itch is strong and the window of opportunity long. I would rather enjoy the project than stress on it... Hopefully by then the lack of materials will be better as well. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. Very nice DavidA! One can certainly tell you have some work in it.
  4. Looks great! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Wondering if someone could recommend a good machine shop to recondition my 4.3L, preferably in the Geneva/Auburn area. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Personally I appreciate this kind of review and information. Thanks for letting someone such as myself know where to go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Nice shop! Looking for one around 25’ or 8 meters for my project. Would you mind share info on it. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. A warm hello to my neighbor on the North side of the pond... Thanks for the invite to your thread. I had taken a look before and noticed the nice cover you have. I was wondering what size, I’m looking for one at least 8m long. My focus this past weekend was my wife. Last chance to spend some quality time together before things start to get busy. As they say: Happy wife... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. On a positive note, thought I would share a picture of my son on his maiden fishing trip with his new to him boat. The old man and his good looking kid got lucky and just happened to see a fish jump by a floating log some 30+ miles at sea. Nothing like limiting out on Mahi on your first trip!

  10. Appreciate your concern and questions. Wife often thinks I need to get my head examined as well... No worries on my capabilities. I’m not in a great rush, plan to have it apart and motor pulled by Thanksgiving. I truly appreciate positive input and experienced suggestions. Not looking to reinvent the wheel.

  11. Greatly appreciate the info thus far. Had been wondering how to check the rivets. Wasn’t thrilled about the thought of making a bathtub out of a boat... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Tip my hat to anyone that can accomplish so much for so little! You did catch my attention about the bulkhead. By any chance do you have pictures of what I should be looking for? I’m optimistic about the corrosion as I’m not seeing any around the exposed areas. Great tip on the rubber channel! There is one triangular window busted on the starboard side. The shape looks sorta formed rather than just flat. Any information on that? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Fortunately the wife forgives most of my transgressions, but I’m prepared with: Baby your new car is going to depreciate more than that boat ever will.... [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Knowing what you have in the end as well and not paying for something that just gets tossed is why I decided to start with this project. I'm sure I'll be upside down as well as I have a bad habit of biting on shiny things...
  15. So before I get started, thought I should set a reasonable budget and decided what better way than to reach out to some experienced people and ask for their honest opinions... What does everyone feel is the value of a late 80's Starcraft Islander in good working order with a freshened up 4.3L, new deck and transom is really worth? Is it really worth replacing all the canvas ( it has a two piece top with the sides and back to make into what I believe is referred to as a "camper" top) adding new electronics, a decent trolling set-up and possibly a newer Kicker motor? I'm not taking on this project to flip it, but I don't want to foolishly toss cash at this without having some idea where to limit myself. So I ask: If this was your project boat, how would you spend the money and what would be your limit?
