    Interesting, it has the later model windshield (61, right Bruce?) and later rub rail and the step pads along the sides were either removed at some point or never installed.
    Cool pics, thanks for sharing!

    Are the cabin windows surrounded by rubber or was the aluminum painted over?

    Pretty sure from his history of the purchase in Marysville that the boat didn't leave the factory like this. Owners previous to the father altered the boat heavily- rub rail, changing cabin windows, upper windshield (may be evidence of holes from original windshield detectable), transom cutouts, brackets, step pads, color of paint, etc. Still a bit rare to find original Skagit hull ID plate attached to boats. Plus, so many are registered with wrong year. A beauty worth restoring, for sure. Would love to look it over.

    Rubber surrounding windows, Plexiglas tinted, I'm sure there has been many mods alterations.
    Ya, Bruce we'll have to get together some time I would like to see your boat also, I haven't seen a working complete Skagit 20 yet.

    Definitely cool. What's your target date to get it on the water? I'm hoping to have at least one of mine sea worthy by late winter.

    I have no target date, my goal is to make slow steady progress. There' s lots of money to spend, motor, rigging and interior. Glass work in this cold wet weather and my day job being similar just with cars,I have limited motivation...

    Since it was barely above 50 degrees today, I could finally epoxy my 5 pieces of 3/8" transom boards together and clamp them in the fixture I made to the shape of the transom before cutting the old wood apart, making the transom wood just under 2" thick. I decided to epoxy the wood together, then I will grind/sand the edges to fit in to the boat and remove the epoxy from the outside of the wood so the polyester resin will adhere. I laid up mat and p-16 polyester to fill the Swiss cheese transom I had. My plan is to add at least one layer of 1708 fiberglass then a layer of 1 1/2 oz mat to the transom shell with polyester resin and press the transom board into the wet mat after saturating the backside of the transom with thinned resin. After that is cured I can fillet the ends for a smooth radius and add a couple layers of the 1708 and mat alternating.
