Finally!!!!!!!!!

MaY\Y 09 I picked up a 1988 Majek RFL, pretty well used for its age, but not in terrible shape. The bow deck was soft so we decided to rip it out and redo it, and at same time raise part of the deck and re gelcoat entire boat. The heat last summer kind of ruined working on it so it sat until about 5 weeks ago. At that point we got back to working on it pretty hard and its finally useable, about 98% complete (few lil cosmetic things left). Have run it but have not fished from it yet, that comes this weekend FINALLY!!!.


Pics When bought:






After the new glasswork/gelcoat.




Today:









Motor is a 94 model 120 Johnson, fuel tank is now under the raised deck area. 10" setback jackplate, 4 blade 17 pitch prop

Still left to do:
Get backrest re upholstered for the front of console
paint and re decal cowling
Have backrest and rod holders added to leaning post
Pick up a stiffy push pole
Replace trailer (Freshened this one up, but I want a stronger one)
gelcoat a couple of dings on the hull from previous owners poor work.


All in all I am very VERY happy with it, beats the hell out of my Carolina skiff j16. Performs great, and having less that $5000 invested in everything, I can't beat it. Took a lil longer to get done than I wanted, but it was well worth it!!

Wow! Man you do some nice work. How much more do you think the boat weighs with the extra goodies on her? Did you add a larger gas tank too? That looks like a good rig to catch tailing reds with a fly setup. Some guys have all the toys

sold the leaning post already


the new tank is actually smaller, i could only fit a 25 gallon under the deck, no biggie though. Figure I haul 15 less gallons of fuel, but added all the extra deck. I may be 100-150 lbs heavier than when it began overall
