I’ve had this boat for a few years. It’s a 1975 15.5’ Livingston and when I purchased the boat it had water in the hull issues and for the past 4 years I’ve just patching and plugging issues. The options were to give it to someone and have them re-do it and fix it properly... or do it myself. I’ve been researching a bit since the start of California lockdown, the delay of salmon season, and plenty of other life issues.. I’ve decided it will give me a better understanding on how it all works! Simple enough. I have other boats to fish on if and when season open up and to be honest, my boat touched water two times last year because of reoccurring issues... so time to just fix it all! I don’t know a whole lot about glassing, but have plenty of friends who do. And with no time frame and a head full of ideas.. I just need to do more research on products to use (different fiberglass,foam, fairing compound, etc.) other wise things only go together properly step-by-step and with 10 years in construction, I feel pretty confident about this. The boats just going to sit there and get worse anyway! So here are some basic photos of my platform currently. I’ll be updating it as much as I can remember on here! I’m stoked to get going on it. I love this boat and have been everywhere with it. I don’t have a truck to tow a much bigger boat, I don’t have the money for a new boat and bigger truck for now... but I do have time and this boat needs a proper once over. I thought about selling it, but I can’t sell this boat!
