Got a call from my upholstery guy, dropped the new seat frame off in July and told him to take his time. I almost forgot it was there. Turned out pretty good.
Thanks, man, had them made just like the originals! Cant wait to drop it off with painter for final detail and get on with this!Looking Good, Those Seats are very similar to the tuck & roll seats I had in my Aqua Craft.
Keep it up, you will be on the water before ya know it.
have you tried that shark hide (i think that's what it's called) product for sealing alum etc.? I'm tempted but havn't yet.I don't think so, I will polish them and keep them waxed or covered with some sort of spray on protection. Not a real fan of the anodized look.
I have probably 40 hrs of sanding and 3 coats of primer. The deck was a mess. I used a straight Line air sander for most of the work to get it flat before I re-glassed it. For the rest, it was hand sanding. I used several different size Durablock's. I used an RO on the bottom to make it go faster but not on the top. I am impatient, too, but when I thought about how much they would charge me by the hour, it motivated me to keep going...........looks really good. What process and tools did you use to get to that stage? I hate sanding, too lazy and impatient haha. I'm always looking for new methods to try and find a way to make it faster and better result.
Lol, that would be a hard one to explain to my grandaughterPut an outdoor motor on it and call it “Pud Wacker”
And I’ve heard over and over it’s bad luck to change the name of a boat...
