I was just telling my buddy that. I said 4 hrs to strip it and 200 hrs to put it back together. Lol
Minimum 200hrs:). From here it's a slippery slope they always just get nicer and more involved ..........but worth it

I love it. Nice to see love given to this Schiada.

I just can't wait to see how big this snowball gets. Just ask Rivergames
lol I know. I don't know how much bigger it could get unless I built a new 20'!!
I'm doing new rigging new trailer new floors and new gel coat.

I'm not sure about that. I'm dead in the middle of our stoker snowball and I think we would have been better off building a new one.

I already went threw this with my Howard just not to this extent so I knew what I was getting into. I have a sickness of really enjoying the building process. Lol

I feel your pain. Project is looking killer. Now I don't feel so bad about mine. Lol
Thx. Ya I just said to myself I don't want to deal with this shit again next year. So I'm hoping the gel coat is done August 1 so I can start the rigging after and use it after Labor Day in Parker.

I'm hoping for 4th of July. But that's being optimistic. I think.
