Hi all, I'm Kyle. I'm new to the forums and looking for good resources on doing a build myself. I recently inherited our childhood family boat from my dad, a 1971 Schiada flat bottom. About 15 years ago the boat sank at Saguaro Lake in AZ with my sister at the wheel, and it has sat on the trailer in my dad's backyard since. Now that I have it and a family of my own, I want to put it back together and raise my kids in it the way I grew up in it. I am currently living and working in Saudi Arabia for 2 years, but as soon as I get home I intend to get on it. However I want to make some unorthodox changes to it to both make it my own as well as make it better for family use, but I have never set up a v drive drivetrain before so I was hoping to find some help here. I'm an aircraft mechanic by trade so I'm certain I'm capable of whatever I need to do, I just need the knowledge. Anyway, thanks for the add and nice to meet everyone! Here's a photo of the baby!
