Hello all-


I have recently purchased a 1965 Johnson Deluxe I/O; I bought because of its
unique styling. I know very little about boats but I'm pretty handy at
repairing most anything. I have some question's I hope some of you
experienced boater's can help me with.


1. The foam in the hull is saturated with water, I removed the wood deck.
Will the water evaporate?

2. Is there any wood buried in the foam such as a beam? If so is it worth
the effort to replace it?

3. Can the motor and outdrive be replaced with something more modern and if
so what all does this entail?


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
