Default boat restoration almost done


during wet sand, wash, wax, buff, polish.

gel coat has a nice blue hue in direct sunlight.

washed, waxed, and in the setting sun. unfortunatly,i didnt get off work in time to get the sun on the entire boat. in direct sun, the entire thing glistens with the metal flake. When I got the boat, the gelcoat was completely oxidized and had no flash to it.

next up is stripping and rhino lining the trailer. also ordered a set of bling bling rims to make it stand out some more.

looks like ya know what your doing Josh..[ -;

I'm restoring mine too..LOl all 10 foot of it..I just put on my 2 nd coat of Marine Tex sealer..I'm replacing my rotted storage doors with 3/4 inch pressure treated plywood .and carpeting it.

Once your trailor is finished it will be very sharp.

I went and bought 5 gallons of boat gas the other day..it doesn't got the stuff in it that gums up the carb. 4.70 a gallon.

chuck, dont use treated plywood on an aluminum boat. the chemicals they use is corrosive to aluminum. your better off getting regular wood, fiberglass resin, harderner, and a paint brush, and treating it yourself.

also,no need to get ethanol free gas if you use stabil. just use it up within a month or two and your good to go. even with ethanol free gas, you still need to use stabil
