Icarus,

I agree with Snookdaddy that you have covered all the bases with your restoration list. I did not do the latch pulls because I wanted the skiff to be as original as possible. So far it has not been a problem. Having said that, the new latches are very nice, and at some time in the future, if any problems arise with my 'old school' latches, I wouldn't hesitate to have them redone. Congrats once again on your new project. I couldn't be happier with the way mine turned out.

Icarus,

I may be wrong, but your hull looks pretty damn good as it sits now. The outside is very glossy! What are you doing with the hatch plumbing? Are you filling in the front drain holes?

HB has the correct latches in stock and you can order them directly from HB.. Better yet, just let Glasser get them from HB for you. He has a good relationship with HB and Bluepoint for the platform.

Snookdaddy, the hull looks super nice. Once Jonathan has fixed the unnecessary holes in the transom it will look perfect. Regarding the plumbing Jonathan is going to remove and refinish the front drain holes in each of the hatches and re-plumb the remaining drains. Also, I am actually going to just replace the old carriage bolt hatch pulls with new stainless ones made for this purpose instead of going with the new modern latches. In the end simple may actually be better.

Hard to tell the condition of the rub rail but I would consider getting that replaced.
I had mine done and it looks a lot cleaner than having an old chewed up rail on a nice new skiff.
