Thats some serious glass/paint work. I would be scared to put it to the dock.

That is SO fine! Ted- sorry if this was covered earlier- but how long have you had the boat? And how long had you planned and prepared for this prior to getting started??

Thanks for following the progression. Really nice to have people encouraging you that can appreciate what you're doing!

Yea, that was kind of my reaction. I was working in the side shop polishing chrome and Stainless parts. Sean stuck his head in after having pulled all the plastic and tape, and said you need to come see this.



Spray painting is done. Decks still need to be Kiwigripped and hull needs barrier coat and bottom paint.

Yes, dreading the first smudge or scratch. Went through the "new paint" phase with the dive boat twice in the last 16 years. The first bird that craps on my new boat is going to pay the ultimate price.

First saw a listing for the boat in 2012.
Saw the boat in October 2013 after a major price reduction. Made offer 2 days later. Sea-trialed in November.
Closed in January 2014. Bought new engine in January. Played with the boat in Fort Myers, FL till April, then headed North. Refit started in June.

When I made the offer, I had already lined up the motor and had a commitment from Sean for paint, glass work, and help with the repower. The projects snowballed once we got started.

Feel like I've been living there for the last 16 months. Can't wait to splash her. Have lots of new toys to play with.

OC, when are you coming through Jax? inquiring minds want to see your boat ( I would say "rig" but I don't want to get called out by Eric again!).

Ted: Cardude and I are curious as to what would happen to your boat if some unfortunate accident would befall you, Lord forbid, while you were down here in Ft. Myers. Would the boat, say, go to an Estate Sale where it would be offered to the "public"?

Sean likes to do quality work. Don't think brand matters. Guessing he is probably booked into next summer now. But money talks, so you never know.

Heading South has yet to be determined. Have some bussiness and personal commitments from latter November through 1st of the year. Maybe a January cruise South. Will certainly announce departure plans when it happens.

Planning on taking it with me.

Outstanding Job!

Thanks!

I'm really more the mechanical part of the team. Sean is the glass and paint man. He makes everything look purdy. Guess my contribution to the finish is a vision and the check book.

Those are really the most important elements.

Of course, having a nice boat to start with helps.

It looks better than a new boat!

You should get Sean to make you a shoe rack, then let me know where you keep it.




The boat looks awesome!!! Love that blue, almost like my Dusky's hull color.

Thanks! Really happy with how it looks. May not be a new boat, but it feels like I have a custom built boat.

In the closet with the shoes.

Yes the colors are awesome. It's amazing how well they go together in natural light.

Have been very busy in the yard this week. All the rub rail guard and cap rail trim is on the boat. Windlass and one bow roller are back in place. And a number of other items have been installed. Will post some updated pics at the end of the week.

Something totally unexpected happened today. Had some final spray painting to do. Throwing caution to the wind, Sean said, "If you want to give it a try, go ahead, I'm OK with it".

I was a little nervous, but think it turned out fine.

Hope you didn't think Sean was going to let me screw up something important. Marking anchor chain with cans of Krylon spray paint is about the limit of my spray painting ability. We both know my limitations.

Thanks! Sean does really nice work. It's great to have someone who takes pride in the quality of their work, doing the glass and paint work.

Figured it was time to post more progress pics.

Hull now has barrier coat and bottom paint. Think the blue bottom paint goes very nicely with the Ice Blue hull and Corinthian Blue boot stripes. All the railings, rub rail guard, porthole trim rings, hawser pipes and cleats are back in place.

Where the keel blocks and jack stands are will be painted next week after the rest of the paint has hardened. There were 4 thin coats of barrier paint that were rolled on in alternating colors followed by to coats of bottom paint. If rolled on, barrier coat takes more layers to achieve the manufacturers recommended mil thickness. Alternating colors makes it easy to ensure you havenít missed a spot. After the boat is repositioned the process will be repeated in the missed areas.

Finally have the new drier vent installed. One of Seanís custom fabrications starting with a piece of Fiberglass exhaust pipe. Sure beats the cheesy plastic one that used to be there.

The stern deck has guttering around the perimeter with 2 floor drains. The new stainless ones look really nice compared to the cheesy plastic ones. Sean did a great job fairing the now exposed gutters and drains!
