Air traps are there.  We have glassed the deck.  My next step is to flip it and sand and glass the bottom.  Pictures to follow.

Your boat looks nice! Maybe you can post a picture of the bottom? It would be cool if you had air traps to give the boat some lift.

We were finally able to get outside to work on the boat.
Comes with steering, deadmans throttle, killswitch, Mercury factory manual.  Trailer has new tires, rims and bearings.  Motor is a 1952/53 Mercury KG7, (not an "H" lower unit) approx. 10+ HP. Probably needs a carb rebuild.  Search it on Facebook Marketplace, this site refuses to let me post a picture.  I can send more pictures if you are Serious!  Everything is located in Ingersoll On.  Email me any questions.  $1500 obo.

I just got in touch with an old friend today and the topic turned to sea fleas.  It brought him back to his adolescence.  He told me how he desperately wanted this Mini Max and talked the owner into trading it for a copy of Deep Purple's Machine Head.  The album was new at the time.  This is the coolest acquisition story I have heard.  Does anyone else have one like this?

Oh, and I forgot.  I found a picture of the original Minimost 1.  Summer of '69 on Morrison Lake.  Me at 17 going for a spin.  Boat has original Scott McCulloch 6.5 which I upgraded the following summer to a 9.8 Merc.  Great fun a long time ago.  Appropriate to launch Minimost 2, 50 years after the original.  Never too late.  B.

Great to see you back online, jmuskoka.  Our thoughts are with you and your family.

So on the outboard front, from your perspective, I have some good news and some bad news.  I have located a motor.  It's a 40 Johnson.  From a friend of a friend.  Know very little about it other than 1 picture and assurances that it runs.  Picking it up this weekend.  Know more when I see model number and serial number. Stay tuned. 
Boat is in semi-hold status until I have warmer weather and maintain good temperatures to cure the epoxy. Still formulating ideas for final color scheme.  But I have a plan.
Stay tuned.   B.

Looks fast just sitting in the workshop.  I like the raised cowl and cockpit.  Gives the boat some vertical aspect which I think this design can use a little of.
Nice job. One new look ready for Fleafest.
