First, let me tell you that i got my Boler from Jewelie. Its in good shape but ill probably spend a part of the winter working on it. Good thing i have a heated garage. I got it 4 weeks ago and i already spent 4 weekends in it. I LOVE IT. The first major modification i did was to convert the front couch into a dinette. It works great. My dad even tried it last weekend. Ill post a few pics in the next few days. I also took out the 120V fluorescent and put a 12v fixture instead. Finally, i redid the whole wiring with fuses. From the answers i got from a question I posted earlier, i decided that i should change the axle, especially since ill be going to Vancouver next summer. I also noticed the floor sags a little around the frame and that the frame itself isnt perfectly flat anymore so ill definitely take the shell off the frame this winter. This will give me a chance to sandblast, straigten and paint the frame, do a little body work and adjust the door.

Ill keep you posted on how my project is going. By the way, "Le Porto I" was my boat. Its now for sale. I might as well get rid of it since im not using it anymore. Ill be sad to let it go.

First pictures.

As you can see, it still needs lots of work. That configuration gives me a large storage space on the right accessible from the side door. Under the left bench is the battery, at least for now. Its acessible from the top. I may put it in front of the trailer, I havent decided yet. The fuse pannel is under the sink.
