does anyone know what happened to the molds I heard the guy made one boat and closed his doors. reason I am asking is a really long story but here it is . Back in 88-89-90 I worked for Sunsation building the rocket which was the predisesor for the aggressor. had the flat deck. well about a month ago I bought a rocket out of Waterford Michigan and drug it back down to Georgia where I live now and started rebuilding it. when I picked it up it had 6 of the 8 rods spun. the transom was replaced somewhere down the line someone replaced the cockpit interior and the cabin interior. and honestly I think I could have my 14 year olds do a better job of it at some point the gas tank was replaced and whoever did it did a bad job I haven't gotton to looking at that yet because of other things getting fixed first.. so far I brought it home cleaned inside to see what I had to work with. pulled the 330 7.4 sent it out to a machine shop bored .30 over crank turned .10 .10 hot tanked and cleaned I had another set of heads that were better the 049 castings and an aluminum performer intake and a bigger cam put it all back together and back in the boat. the wireing was a mess so I started tracing the wiring and straightened it out. then pulled all the interior out of the cabin to replace haven't gotton past this yet this is where I am at. motor in not hooked up completely cabin stripped down bilge and transom repainted since it was bare fiberglass removed everything off the transom and remounted it with silicone this time. sealed any open holes in transom. rewired the console and switches remade a new gauge cluster since the old was horrible. the reason I am doing so much is this is one of the boats I built so I get to build it twice what I would like to get is a few of the parts if possible . fiberglass swim platforms, the new dash, and there are 2 pieces that attach under the dash and on the passenger side. plus a cockpit liner if possible

above the day I bought it in Michigan


above is now gutted going back as close to stock as possible.


all brown in this pick is now gone




the motor before I pulled it out has cmi split tube headers don't like where he made them exit the boat but to late to fix that now just have to work with it .

A black boat down in Georgia? Oh boy is that going to be hot.

I like the new graphics but I think you need some white in places.

thought about painting it white also. but since I do all my work myself on all my projects. painting a boat might be just a little above me. I have painted 3 cars in my garage so not a big deal to paint but fitting the boat in the garage well it would fit but it would be tight and there wouldn't be a lot of room to navigate around it then what to do with the bottom from what I have read base clear doesn't hold up well for the bottom is that correct?

There are some guys on Offshore Only that have done great boat
painting. They would be able to tell you what paint to use on the
hull.
