Hi, my name's Mike. I'm from Northwestern Ontario, Canada and I am the lucky recipient of a 13' 73 Boler
(at least I think it is Serial No. 34 02XX).
My dad purchased the boler
about 17 years ago. We used it as is and didn't do any work on it. Now that my dad's getting on in years he passed it on to me... and I'd like to get my hands dirty.
I'll admit, I'm a little scared to start dismantling the boler
. I would love to do the following. Replace all the windows
the exterior, redo the upholstery, redo the electrical
and add battery
power and eventually solar
Those mods are my wish list at the moment. My wife and I are planning to take the boler our on it's first adventure in about 12 years... We're headed for Texas next month. Things I want to do before then. Replace a window pane (apparently someone "accidentally" threw a rock through it), and replace the exterior door handle... then take off the ugly padlock and fill in the holes.... this was something the previous... previous owner did.
I'll post pictures along the way... I think I'll be depending a lot on everyone here in the forum to make sure I don't ruin my new toy.
