Well I hope to get her in the water this month... progress is still slow, issues at the yard, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel... weather made me postpone my trip this week to work on it so I did the next best thing... made a video out of the pictures, excuse the corny Styx soundtrack it was my first time playing with iMovie.
Let me know what you think.

I was able to enjoy the whole thing, including the cheesy elevator music near the end! Will you be making one of the interior?

Wow! And that doesn't quite do justice. The lines on almost any DeFever are timeless and you have brought a great boat back to life. What a project to undertake but boy are you going to feel great cruising for the rest of your life in that! Can't wait to see the interior refit. Also we will need video of the champagne party when she heads off on the first cruise!

At home I have the actual product names although that may now be of not much help as names and product formulations change. The zinc coat was Devoe Cathacote if memory serves., can't remember the epoxy and the bottom paint was Amercoat ABC
+1 on the Devoe products although I prefer their hard anti-fouling.

Well.... I'm now approaching two years on this "paint job"... the last few months have been brutal, long story short the yard had a manger change late December 2013... they did some work in Jan and a bit in Feb then stopped... I talked with the owner of the yard he said "the manager is working it".... my last conversation with the manager was F-you no F-you I'm calling my lawyer"... tempers calmed down and I'm dealing only with the owner now.... I think we are making slow progress... we are so close... I just want my boat back....

Sorry for your trouble. Also sorry we couldn't meet up for lunch/dinner at Lackland in February, it was a whirlwind for us to say the least.

Good luck on the boat
