Stripped the floor out. It came out fairly easily and the structure looks. As I work more on this boat the more I believe the hull and deck were purchased as a unit and boat was completed by a group or individual. The workmanship is not is not quality you would expect to see from a manufacturer.

The transom will be the biggest job.

It’s that time of year again. Today was the last day to harvest the garden. We did pretty good and have lots of canned, frozen, and fresh veggies.

The squash and pumpkins are still growing.

Next year will be even better with some more soil conditioning

The hull is in very good shape except for the transom which needs rebuilding. The bow deck which you can see is sagging. New oak supports and some glass work will fix this.

The transom needs some work but it’s shape is good. It has metal reinforcement. Just lots of time needed to repair.

The new project in my shop is my project and not a customers which is a change. I’ve had the Mondetta Sport for a few years but have not had the time to work on it. Overall it is in pretty good shape and solid. The transom needs rebuilding, the bow deck needs to be beefed up, and a new wood floor needs to be put down. I will post photos and such as I progress. I am trying to find out who built this boat, in which country, and when. I’ve been on forums and done many searches and found nothing. If anyone is familiar with this boat please let me know. I do know 90% of the hardware was made in Canada since it is stamp on the pieces. Below is a photo of the company ID tag. I can’t find and serial or model numbers.
