Looking for some hands on help in northern Illinois

Post by Mark Christensen » Tue Mar 16, 2021 8:06 pm

I'm redoing the bottom on my 24' 1961 Sportsman. I'm a decent woodworker, but I've gotten to a point where I'm stuck not knowing where to go next. Bottom is off. I've read Danenberg's books front to back and back to front 10x. I'm willing to pay for someone's time to come and spend a couple Saturdays helping me work through some of the issues I'm facing. I'm in Rockford, IL. Anyone interested in something like this?
