Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I fabricated and installed the cockpit molding. I wanted the top to be very thin and was able to get it about 1/16" thick. I traced the curve onto the wood and cut it out and made appropriate offsets for the lip and the face. Cut it out on the bandsaw, sanded it fair on the O.S.S. and disc sander. I...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I installed the carpet on the fiberglass sides all around including a spot in the bow that is raised up (I'm pretty sure its full of floatation foam). Its really starting to look nice! its was a pain to install that carpet like a yoga pretzel under the dash getting all sticky. Had to wear the respir...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I made a wooden insert to cover the center of the steering wheel. I turned it on the lathe that I have not used in many years (as you can see from the neglect of that chuck, eak!). Took me awhile I remember how to "steer the bevel" I put a few coats of epoxy and its just sorta snaps into place. If i...

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks for the links to the deck material. I'm considering it for my floor.

The helm looks great!

Looks like you used similar synthetic teak for internal floors too. It looks really classy!

Good luck on the survey!

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks Jim, Carl and vupilot; I appreciate the compliments! I completed the rear seat, sanded it and put on a coat of epoxy. Bubble-pocalypse!!! There must have had A LOT of air in the wood cause I have never seen bubbling this bad. I put on the first coat at 8am (105+207) and when it was dry to the...

Re: Klondike Build

Wow Steve, just wow. Amazing! The railing on the deck looks so good! The amount of work is staggering; so much plumbing and wiring. It is so cool your going to have her in the water soon. Is that one of the motors in the lower left of the second pic? Does that wall come out that is on top of it? Lov...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The helm turned out really well. As my woodworking teacher said "There are no mistakes in woodworking, only design opportunities." The curve on the back to make the platform longer really fits in well.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I sanded some more and got most of the low frequency noise out. A few very subtle dips here and there but I don't think anyone other than I would notice. I put three more coats of 105+207 epoxy on at {7pm, 6am, 11am} I dropped filled a few suckouts. I got them all now! I am pretty happy with it over...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I sanded the hull again after the previous epoxy session. There were still some small low spots so scuffed them up with scotch bright and drop filled them with epoxy without rolling the entire deck with epoxy. It really helped to fill in the majority of the low spots that were in the white stripes. ...
