OK, here's a good update.
We have previously prepared the underlying S10: Cage, wheels, bigger brakes from a Blazer, etc. Here is what it looked like:
Friday, we picked up the boat, as seen above.
We had a lot of deconstructing to do. Here is what we started with inside
We started removing all of the trim, then the carpet, and then the 4 layers of completely rotten wood and glass floor.
After lots of cutting with the Sawzall, and with the floor removed, we had a disgusting mess of 40 years of stagnant water, fish blood, beer piss, foam, and completely rotten wood
After plenty of measurements, we started to cut
Sawzalls are fun
Once it was all cut out, we moved it into position, out next to the truck
We moved it onto the lawn, then put it behind the truck and up on jackstands, ready to swallow the truck, pacman style
Then there was a long series of lift, cut, lift, cut, lift cut
And, here is how we ended the day:
That was the easy part. Now we have to actually make sure that the boat doesn't fly off at speed, more theming, and lots of small details. More to come.
We are super excited with how this turned out, just like we envisioned in those drunken stupors. The themes are the most fun. Look out for paddock water skiing on rollerblades, etc.
