Very cool! My first (non family) job was for a local boatyard that restored old boats; mostly wooden, but they would take on just about anything if you were willing to deal with long turnaround times. We used to have a guy that trailered his offshore racing powerboat (3 blown 502"s I think) in at 5am; put it in the water; blast to the other end of the lake, drink coffee and eat french toast and come back. Then he'd hang around all day and get in the way; but the gas bill and my tip made it worthwhile
Get some video of that classic flatbottom doin' work please?
