Sweet rebuild! ALL-PRO!! Really like the hull color, making me re-think my plans for gloss black.

Your boat is looking great, and your progress is impressive.

Thank you guys.

It has been so wet out that I have hardly had a chance to work on the boat. Everytime I have had a few hours it's been raining. Well it finally dried out enough to get back out there and I was able to get the rest of the nonskid down.

Started on the bow and worked my way back.





Decided to get a little creative in the back and bring some of the hull color into the boat.





I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out.

Looks great!  You make that gelcoat thing look easy.

Thanks all! The inside was all white so this did a great job of bringing some color in.

So this was my view for the day. Decided to tackle sanding the bottom while I was in gelcoat mode.



Why do people beach their boats!!



Luckily that was the extent of the damage. The rest of the hull looks great!



Went over the whole thing with 240 to remove all the grime and tannic stains and then cleaned up the dings with some 80 and filled them back in with thickened epoxy. Luckily nothing was very far into the glass. It was pretty much all just gelcoat damage.

Thanks! I'm gonna stick with white. My dad stopped by yesterday when I was done and asked me if I was just going to leave it since it cleaned up so nice. If I didn't have a bunch of patches all over it now I might have.

A better hurricane forecast for the west coast meant less storm prep and more work on the boat this weekend. On a side note, I feel so bad for those in the Bahamas right now and wish them all a speedy recovery.

I got the bottom taped off and sprayed.



Then I got started installing hardware! Since the cap is foam I really didn't want to mess around with the cleats so I overdrilled all the holes and filled them with thickened epoxy. (Ok, fine it's Marine Tex, but I was out of silica and Ace was closer than FGCI  :wink2: )



Then I cut a scrap piece of coosa that was already glassed into strips to use as backing plates.



Which were then all thru bolted and sealed with 5200. If these suckers pull out then I am in trouble.



Also got the two transom doors, the door on the bow and the hatch for the fuel tank cover installed and sealed down.



Then I started working on the hinges and latches for all five floor hatches before I ran out of daylight. Once I finish all those I will probably move on to running the drain hoses and maybe get the livewell and pumps installed and then start wiring.

Only had a few hours this weekend but I managed to get the rest of the deck hardware installed. 95% of it is from Gemlux that I have been collecting over the past year whenever I find good prices on it. All the hatches have friction hinges and compression latches to keep the rattling down, and I through bolted all of it as well. I also added a couple rod holders to the bow to and some cup holders in the rear.





I also found a deal on a 30" bracket that I couldn't pass up. I'm gonna put a little time into cleaning it up and making sure it is as structurally sound as it appears to be. If so it could be the deal of the year.
