Talk about a cool unique restoration! The whirlwind is having its own rebuilding done by 'cold molding'. Each layer is put in individually. The interior of the boat is done and Meghan has done awesome patch work to the side. Do you wanna know what cold molding is? Let us know and Gary will tell us what, how, and why this is so cool!
This boat has gotten the finishing touches done with paint and varnish. The wiring is about 75% done Next up is wiring the wire panel & remote stern lights. This boat will be saying 'Fair Seas' next week!
The Riviera is looking good - thanks Shane! The stain on the deck is done and now we need 1 to 2 more coats of sealer before we can bleach and stain the blonde area.
This electric boat is almost ready to leave the shop. All the wiring is done, now we detail and hook it up!
The 56 is now "Integrity". What would/did you name your boat? This boat is being shipped soon for its custom trailer fitting.
The skiff is getting new seats and a wiring control panel. Next up is upholstery!
This ski boat is ready to take on the wind with its newly installed windshield. Shane has been installing the interior and doing a lot of wiring. Once the gauges come in the boat will be in top shape with its engine hooked up and ready for a test run.
Repetition is something we at Lowell Boats know much about! The U18 is in its sanding and fairing cycle - 3 down once more to go! Check out Gary posing with the U18 - lookin good !
This electric boat is on its way home! Gary and Jack are headed to Roaring Gap to return this newly restored boat to its owner. Fair Seas!
Tricky! is the word used by our restorationist to describe what's being done. Our crew found rot in the continental, they removed and replaced the chine planks as well as transom chine. Jack is making custom transom chine pieces and frame replacement parts. Hear Gary explain how and why in the video below!
