Still working on the Tung Hwa Senator refurb

Refurbishment of this 1985 Tung Hwa Senator 31 foot Trawler has been fun so far. Doing lots of stuff I have never done before. Other things I have done extensively but not on a boat. This last week I finished up the interior storage locker and put in some new fangled led light disc's into old, good quality light fixtures to save a few bucks. Don't disregard some of the original equipment. Some of the old stuff was made better back in the day and can be Refurbished. Of course many times its just junk 😆. Anyways I made a very short video of some of the progress. Next up I am doing some fiberglass and core repairs on the upper deck.

As in the case of the lid that goes under the cusions, keep the old piece.Anything with Teak on it, even veneer could turn out to be valuable later in the project.

Good work,

pete

More work on the Trawler. This was actually prior to beginning the headliner since this was fixing the leak that stained the headliner. Repairing the upper deck aft sections that were rotted under the stanchions and near the edges. This along with re-caulking the forward cap rails and around the Samson post now has the boat leak free. Now after the headliner, which we bought material today, I can begin to actually sand and paint and caulk the exterior wood and fiberglass.

Learning to sew and making cushions for the boat.

I figure Ill just keep everything regarding progress in one thread. This is actually from a few months ago. Not much of a videographer...but you get the idea..lol.

Ill be installing 2/3 of the headliner this weekend. Maybe all of it if we like the fabric we purchased.

Part 2 of the headliner repairs. Its coming out better than expected. Just need a bit more material and then the handrails, trim, speakers and lights can go back up.

Part 3 of the headliner install. Its coming out great. Teak rails have been sprayed as well as the window trim screens and other teak pieces. They came out great too. Next time I will show all that stuff installed and it should be a startling difference in before and after. Especially for this old boat...lol.

Thanks Twillie. When I put the wood pieces and new cushions back in the boat along with new LED lighting its going to feel like a different boat. The interior Teak came out pretty good. Nice and shiny.

Awesome looking job! I’d bet it makes you feel good as you accomplish each of your task! Spraying the wood really looks nice!

Thanks Capt Jon. I tried brushing first and it came out ok. I am using Total Boat products at the moment. Their wood product can be thinned so I figured I would try it with a spray gun. In the future I will be spraying from here on out when possible. You can lay down more product evenly. And when thinned the drying time was much quicker. Its tack free in about 6 hours. There are blemishes but they are hard to notice. The blemishes came from obviously spraying out doors and then some was from prep in some areas. But its very hard to notice.
