Restoration of 1970's era Sea King 12 foot Aluminum Rowboat

I picked up this 1970's Sea King 12ft aluminum row boat for $75.00 at a local Pittsburgh yard sale.  I purchased a wire brush bit for my cordless drill and two spray cans and one quart of Rustoleum protective enamel paint for a new coat of blue and grey.  I already had the hand sander and paper, stain and polyurethane for the wooden seats.  I spent two weekends cleaning this boat up and now that it is finished I'll purchase a launch permit and then my son and I will be off fishing at the local lake soon.

Good luck to everyone on the upcoming 2019 fishing season!

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
