Big job but very interesting. I look forward to watching your progress. Good luck.
Im looking forward to watching this beautiful boat take shape!!
Just out of curiosity, what kind of boat is the boat on the trailer with the navy colored hull next to you in this segment? I’m guessing Bertram 25′
Thanks, Bud Ainsworth
Good eye 😉 Yes it’s a 1972 Bertram Moppie 25. Hoping to restore that next Winter!!
I also have 3 girls that I’ve started with a free boat 1959 lone star 14′ fiberglass with 50 hp Evinrude. And yea l had to rebuild the motor and fix gel coat on top of boat and repaint. But the girls were very excited to help with the restoration. Yes it took a lot of time and a few bucks. But the important thing for me was hanging out with my girls. Which made the project priceless ! I would do it again. So keep with your plan. nn o I
You mentioned that you would have 4000-5000 in materials? What would be your highest dollar amount items?
Love your Rhodes 19 project. That hull is a gem and the boat sails like a dream. New boats lack “soul”.. Best if luck and keep on posting
I’m waiting patiently for an out of town guest to go home so I can begin the revivification of my 1958 Bell Boy Bonanza!! And, you’re right…I don’t care, It’s my Boat!
Hey Andy, I just discovered your videos and am already a fan! I “restore” trailerable keelboats up to 20’ (Cape Dory Typhoons, Bulls Eyes, Rhodes 18’s, etc.), and am sure that I’ll get a lot out of your “tutorials”.
I tried Quantum 99 last summer and had to repaint five times and STILL had orange peel!
