HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW WE CAN DO IT
Scroll down for photos
We started off with a 1983 18 ft Century Resorter open utility fiberglass ski boat. That we discussed with customer to make it into a mahogany runabout with a fiberglass hull by putting, mahogany floors, seats, inside of sides, 1/2'' decks and dash. Painted the hull burgundy to look like wood and went from an open utility with a motor box to a split cockpit with an engine hatch.
After stripping out the inside and all the hardware off the decks, we began putting down new mahogany floor boards.
Then we stripe the floor board with 1/8'' black stripes
After detailing and painting the engine we install it in place to put in the forward and aft bulk heads in.
We applied a mahogany dash over the original fiberglass one and also built new seats.
Now that we have the seats and bulk heads in place now we can construct the engine hatch.
We then sand down the fiberglass deck to get a nice bondable surface for the epoxy to bond the new mahogany to the fiberglass deck.
After all the decks are laid down and fit properly we epoxy them down and bung all the screw holes.
We cut all the bungs to deck level then start sanding to get a nice smooth finish.
After we have reached the desired smoothness we start varnishing. No stain was applied because the customer wanted the natural wood finish.
We then apply 2 coats of varnish, 2 coats of epoxy then sand the decks stripe with 1/8'' black stripe. Then apply multiple coats of varnish then epoxy.
Now the Boat is going off to get a nice new paint job on the sides, bottom and transom
The boat now has its nice new paint job. We also sanded and buffed the decks for a nice smooth, shiny finish. Then applied all the hardware, windshield, swim ladder and rub rails.
Here we cut out the vinyl letters and apply a name of the customers choice to the transom.
