'81 Spirit 23 in Charlotte, NC

Took a strip of some plastic lumber I had around and ripped it to width to fill the ruler section on my igloo marine cooler. This made it flatter, gave better traction and stiffened the top a bit as well. I also added a step I salvaged off another boat which I cut down to one step add screwed the brackets to the front if the cooler with a little expoxy. This just makes the step easier for shorter people, mainly kids, dogs and my girlfriend!



Also working on a table since mine was missing. Got two 15x36 aspen panels for $15 each and a 1x4 for the legs. Need to order the hinges but I'll just have the one side for now. I also cut a new panel fir the floor from some marine plywood I salvaged and routed the bottom to allow water to drain into the bilge.
