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 ...

Looks great!

Were there any "gotchas" that you discovered along the way?

Where did you get the struts?

One thing I am not sure about yet is whether to stain or not.
My recommendation is no; leave it natural.
1. It looks better natural IMO
2. If you burn through when sanding after epoxying it no biggie.
3. Less work

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks all! I buffed out a test piece last week and it looked pretty good. So I cut and buffed out the transom (it had a few drips) and its super flat, no peel and it looks reasonable (still a bit hazy) but not as glassy as it was right off the gun. I Clearly didn't all of the 600/800 grit scratches...

Re: Malahini from MD

Your boat is looking great! Interlux perfection plus has given me glossy finish. I rolled and tipped. The coats are very thin and they don't fill much, in other words, it will follow the contour of the orange peel and GLOSSY orange peel will be the result. The closer you are to dead flat after epoxy...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Looking great! The way that the king plank rounds into the covering boards is the same way that I did mine, I think this is the best look.

All my boards were epoxied down, they were about 3/16" thick and they have been fine so far.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I sprayed some test panels and they turned out well so I decided to spray the boat today. It looks reasonable . Its not the A+ work I was hoping for but its a solid B. Hopefully I can turn it into a A- by cutting and buffing it.The best part is that there are no brush marks or start stop marks. All ...
