  ago.  Unfortunately, at this time I have only managed to   
  complete the new transom project, blueprinting of bottom  
  and the paintwork (repainted in jet black Imron with orange  
  and yellow pins.  I still have the floor to replace and then   
  the rigging process.  The new transom is 3 layers of 3/4   
  marine ply vacuum bagged in placed with vinylester resin  
  and E glass laminates along with 3 reinforcement knees.  
  The new floor will be Airex foam.  It is a big project....but  
  one day I will either finish it....or sell it!  The 200VT is one  
  boat that can hold its own against ANYTHING on the   
  water in its class. There may be a couple that are faster.....  
  but none that are as easy to run as a Shadow."
