MCKENZIE DRIFTER RESTORATION

by MIKE
(YUMA, AZ.)

SELLER TALKED ABOUT A PREVIOUS CRASH/REPAIR.

JUST FOUND IT.

STARBOARD INSIDE CHINE IS MISSING BETWEEN RIBS 1 AND 7.

I USE THE BOAT ON FLAT, SLOW WATER IN S/W AZ. BUT AM THINKING ABOUT REPLACING CHINE JUST FOR ESTHETICS.

GOOD IDEA OR NOT?

ALSO, INSIDE PAINT APPEARS TO BE A SANDED OFF WHITE SOMETHING. ANY IDEAS?

THANKS,
MIKE

I agree, replace that chine.

The paint sounds like it need rubbing down and replacing with a good quality paint, one that will preserve your boat.

The chine was not put there for asthetic reasons.

I would replace it, even though you expect your boat to have an easy life.

Things happen..at the most inconvienant times.
