I picked up this Skipjack last year and it ran fine till it hydro locked on me. Long story short I'm getting the motor rebuilt. I did the top half already just waiting for the bottom end to get done. In the mean time I started messing around and here is where I'm at now. Started to lay down some Seadek, not very complicated if you're able to remove everything. I'll be redoing the side panels and also re-gelcoat the bait tank. Motor should be ready in about 2 weeks.

I made some seat boxes too. One with cooler and other storage.

Ended up tossing them. Take up too much room and a nice cooler with pad works better as a cooler and seat. YMMV.

Looks good.

So getting closer, finisher wiring everything including adding some blue lights cuz my buddies asked for. New reupholstered side panels, seadek coming pads, some work to the trailer and making a new engine cover. Got the radar working on both the 12” & 9” screens and wired the transducer.
