    Tender rebuild

    My brother in law has this little Tender boat that he keeps down in Mapelton at his dock. Mainly used to work on the dock.
    Not even sure Who made it as no information on it but this little sucker is Wide and shallow so good for a lake anyway.
    Never the less, its as a Sinker due to being banged up during storms and when the river flooded.

    So, lots of holes and dings to fill so here are some Before pictures of it.

    And now to practice some pattern making

    I will cut a opening in the lower area as so he can stuff his life jackets it like he did before as well as out a stiffener in under the top as I know they will be standing on it.
    That thing gets beat up pretty good so will double up on the glass tape and then cover the whole box and transom area in fiberglass cloth.
