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.
