Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I decided to go with the D21 prop seal.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I finally got up the nerve to remove the crusty shaft coupling and shaft seal. It surprisingly came out nice and easy with a pair of 2 jaw pullers from HF. I thought about replacing it with a PSS Shaft Seal from PYI Inc. but there is not enough clearance between the shaft log and the coupler to fit ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I think I was putting the epoxy on too light and rolling too fast (it sounded like a crackling fire when I was rolling). The roller was adding air into the epoxy as the surface tension was broken. I just rolled on a coat that was much heavier and there are almost no bubbles (and no sound) and it is ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

It looks great! Its nice that you have the patience to add details like this to get the boat that you want and not try and hurry up and finish and "add them later." In my experience the details never do actually get added "later" :D

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Here is a shot of it with a fresh coat of epoxy. I'm getting some air bubbles from the West Systems 800 roller. I never got them before but they will sand out...Just sorta annoying. Since it is veneer I am doing a "book match" on the other rail of the boat so they will be mirror images of each other...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I have been working on replacing the old rail where the throttle is mounted. This also serves to hold up a portion of the deck. I scored a deal on some nice block figured Makore veneer so I decided to use it for the cockpit. Since I was veneering it I didn't want to use a solid wood substrate due to...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

The boat had ~10 gal integral fiberglass gas tanks (one on each side). I read that ethanol will eat the old fiberglass resin therefore I decided to cut them out and replace them with stainless steel tanks. I made some templates of the hull at each end of the tank out of 1/4" scrap ply that I had lay...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Here is some rot on the stern which was chiseled out and then repaired with West System Epoxy 105/205 + 405 sanded down with the Rotex.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Here are some shots while removing the old fiberglass and veneer from the deck. It came off reasonably easy using a sharp putty knife. I then used the Festool Rotex to take on the spots down where the glue held better.

16' Ski Boat Restoration

So here is the "Other Woman" that I have been seeing on the side. I have been neglecting my 17' Overnighter Sloop Build for a faster gal. My wife is enabling my decision as she digs speed over the serenity of sailing. Is it allowed to post non-Glen-L boat restoration progress here? She is a 16' Ski ...
