Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Hi Denon - Thank you for the compliments. Its a good from far, far from good paint job. Mainly because of the overspray spots where I thought I was being helpful and adding a little extra spritz I made matters worse and the paint didn't flow out in a few spots. Now I know for next time and I'm sure ...

Re: Off Center Engine Hatch, thoughts?

Thanks for the advice so far. I took some more pics today so you can see what might be involved. Add a layer of ply to one side of the engine cover so the top becomes symmetric and then redo the hatch-band so that it is symmetric too hiding the asymmetry underneath. Tom I think this is another way o...

Off Center Engine Hatch, thoughts?

I have been putting this one off for awhile as I am a bit stumped. I am looking for opinions on what to do about my Off-Center Engine Hatch. Its only off by about 3/8" but the issue is that if I keep the deck planks the same width that they are on the bow then there is an extra stripe on the starboa...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks Carl and Tom! Will the switches be labelled I will probably label them on the top of the switch with a label printer. The face of the switches will not really be visible because they will be next to the drivers shin (see pic). The wood part will be blocked by the seat frame. I'm not sure how ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Carl - Let me know if you use it i'll be happy to give you my source data to get you started. I realized I needed more surface area to mount the seat fuse panel and extra switches so I started making a electrical panel this weekend that will fill the gap in the bottom front of the front seat between...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I have been working on the wiring. I finally got around to doing the schematic as well. The Forum would not let me post a .PDF so I uploaded the pictures of it. I used Designspark Electrical it is free and I know how to use it. If anyone would like the .pdf or the native schematic as a .proj.tewzip ...
