New to the forum and finally got my feet properly wet in the wood world. I picked up at 14' Priwing from Bill Wingo's grandson. Just here to share knowledge and learn as much as I can. Oddly enough, my grandfather built all those Priwings and I am the first one in the family to own one....
Looking forward to getting her squared away and wet later this summer.
She has a few things that need some TLC, cleats rechromed, the deck has been sanded, sealed and poly applied. I need to do some digging into that and see if I want to varnish the rest of the hull or poly that as well. She needs some joints sealed here and there. I have found a guy to go through the Evinrude for me and hopefully get that running. I have all the steering and throttle controls just have to route them. I definitely plan on using her. Some decent sized lakes in North East PA and I have a friend with a house on the water on Md's Eastern shore.
Considering making some replacement benches that I won't feel horrible about upholstering... Ill just store the originals.
Other than possibly a hide-a-way panel with a VHF comm and a radio and maybe the upholstery work I want her to be as original and period correct as possible.
