One of the more difficult tasks. Cutting an angle shaft hole. This must be done by starting and ending in the exact right spot. Check it out on our facebook. Link below:
Everyone in the shop has been working on the U-18 and watching its transformation! Shane has sanded down the hull, stained and now has built up 5 coats of varnish. Shane is currently painting the bottom. Jack has drilled the hole for the propshaft & strut into the keel. Meghan has been helping with the varnish building.
This continental has its framework and chine pieces reinstalled by Jack. Jack has also installed the keel and started fitting new plywood for the bottom.
Carolina Flats Skiff
This just in: new to the shop the Carolina Flats Skiff. Jacks already got the deck removed! Follow along to see this boat's restoration.
The Riviera is building its varnish up. Shane and Meghan have varnished the deck and it is looking good.
The 56 or should we say "Integrity" is on its way to get fitted for a new custom trailer! We will have it back in the shop in about 2 weeks to finish up work & return to its owner.
This boat is just about finished! The crew took it out for a sea trial and it just needs a few electrical tweeks and it will be good to go! Check out a clip of our sea trial at the link below:
This electric boat has a new drilled hole for its propshaft through the repaired keel pieces thanks to Jack.
Shane has been fitting and painting the new seat parts for this boat. Meghan did the final coat of paint on these new seat parts and Shane has been wiring the electrical to the main switch board.
Meghan has dry fitted and shaped the rub rail & splash rail for the Whirlwind. She is now staining to then build up coats of varnish on the port aft on the new veneers.
The ski boat is getting a touch up of varnish. Do you know how many coats of varnish does one restoration take?
