Hello fellow Glen L boaters!

I thought I would share with you my most recent update to the restoration on my Double Eagle.
last weekend I installed teak sheet vinyl floors. (Before and after photos attached)
As of now, all the edges have been sealed, and are getting fitted now for 1/4 round trim.
The updating continues, but for now, this was one more step moving forward!

Hello all,

Well, for anyone that has any interest in building or restoring a Double Eagle, I thought I would share some of my recent updates to mine.
I just got my bimini top made and next is the full enclosures and also a full boat cover.
After that, i will be removing the side windows and rebuilding them.

Thank you!!
She is def a unique boat where I live and take her out in.
I always get compliments. I still have a lot of detail work left, but hopefully she should be "complete" in a few months.

I like the Bimini, makes me wish I had built with a cabin.

How is the Spray Rails coming along??

I still have to fix my side windows and create a little nicer opening, since I removed the two plexiglass ones on each side.

The rails are next. I am bringing the boat home next weekend, and that will be my next project.
I already found were to buy the wood.
Speaking of that, what kind of wood do you recommend I use for the rails, and should I CPES them then paint them, or just paint them?

My boat is stored on the trailer and not in the water.

She looks great. My rails have 3 coats of epoxy. Then screwed and glued with 4200. Then painted.

What kind of Epoxy did you use to encapsulate them in?

Smiths CPES for sealing wood prior to painting or repairing rotted wood.
