Very nice job, and I really like a lot Gulfstar shape. I was about to get a 43 one earlier this year when I got my first boat.

But this said... now that you have all that experience with boat renovation... I think it would be a pity to lose all this knowledge... you could come here and do the same on my boat!

Did some "brightwork" today!!!

Tearing off the old 1/4 inch teak trim. The surface underneath will be faired and painted.

Also, removed a trim ring on one of the port lights to see how they look. Going to rebed all port lights and hatches. Ordering new trim rings since these ones are shot.

So surprised you can do all this work in the slip.
Years ago, OK many years ago, my wife would put on her bikini and run the shop vac as I did some exterior sanding.
When Harbor Patrol cruised by they never noticed the dust in the water.

SSSSSsshhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

The people on my dock are very cool and the vibes are very "live and let live". I make sure I don't annoy anybody and if there is going to be dust I have a conversation with my neighbors before hand. Also, if their boat is dusted I hose it down or wash it. If things are extreme, a sincere apology and some ice cold beers go a long way.

And good tip with the wife-in-bikini maneuver! The marina manager here is a girl though so I guess I have to put on the banana hammock?

We rolled out some non-skid yesterday and the horizontal surfaces on the aft deck are now done! The new paint sure makes the rest of the boat look like absolute crap!

I'm a big fan of Kiwigrip. I did my entire 70 foot MY with the stuff. It feels great on your feet, is easy to repair, and looks pretty good. The trick to getting a good professional looking job is masking off the reveals. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the boat with the same finish.

It certainly is a problem. There's no turning back. You'll end of painting the entire boat now.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! I'm now starting on the flybridge as well as the area below the aft deck. These areas should be much easier since there is no re-coring involved and only minimal repairs (knocking on wood).

Progress is slowing due to Christmas and stuff. Opened up the gelcoat cracks and removed all failing gelcoat. Made one pass with unthickened epoxy to penetrate into the glass mat. Made another pass with microbaloons to start fairing it out. Time to start sanding again!
