Newbie from Alberta

Post by Boomhauer440 »

Hey everyone. I'm from Cold Lake, Alberta. A few years ago I bought a crappy old trailer in Calgary for $150 and it came with a free run down old speed boat. I've finally figured out it's a 17' Thunderbolt and I'm starting to look into either fixing it or starting from scratch. I'm new to boat building and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions so thank you all in advance for the help you'll inevitably give.
