  • just a little elbow grease

    I haven't taken pix throughout my project because I don't need any major structural work. just a lot of cleaning, trimming, and hatch rebuilding. Here is some of my preliminary stuff though.

    before



    after







    Just today I put the new rubrail on. will try and put the T-Top on tomorrow if I have time. Then the re-wiring will begin. Boy won't that be fun...........

    Looks great. Was that just from cleaning/wet sanding/buffing or did you paint?

        I had to paint the gunwhale and the casting deck. There were so many chips, cracks, and dents. Every hatch cover on the boat was missing or unrepairable. so I replaced them with starboard.

              filled a lot of the little hole from like the trim tabs and transducer with epoxy. Motor mount holes with a dowel coated in epoxy. You don't want the dowel flush with the transom, leave yourself an 1/8 in or so that you can epoxy and sand for a smooth look.

              got the T-Top back on today

                Did you have the t-top fab'd locally? Your boat looks great.

                  It was on the boat when I bought it. I'll see if I can find a manufacturers plate on it tomorrow.

                    Nice work. How long is your boat? Did you have to do anything to the deck?

                      21 feet long. The deck was damaged when the bow lift ring got bent. I had to make a small repair around where the eye attaches and I painted the deck, gunwhale, and top of the transom with a polyurathane. The back of the transom got re-gelcoated.
