Wow looks great....That is makes me want to run out side and clean the interior of my boat.

how do you keep vinyl from cracking like that?

The Governor
08-15-2005, 06:51 PM
The rear seat was quite a challenge. Structurally it was in BAD shape.

Here it is before......

The Governor
08-15-2005, 06:52 PM
And here it is after. :D

Gov,
Boat looks awesome! Did you use an interior guy from here in Central FL? If so, I'd love to get his contact info.

That looks awesome compared to what it used to be like. The people who had the boat before you must have beat the sh*t out of the interior to make it look like it did!

Yes I did. He came by recommendation from Chuck at Bay Area Watersports.

Bennett Marine, ask for Scott. Their number is 813-928-0466. They're in Gibsonton.

Once the materials came in, he had it done in only 3 days! :eek:

Be sure and mention my boat! Scott's great to work with.

The original quote was $1200, but with the back seat in such a mess, it ended up being $1250. :D

Thanks!

I really respect the fact that you restored a piece of history. I am from the school of "they don't make 'em like that anymore" and most times I am right.


Looks Reeeeeel Nice!!!!

Paid amount?
Invested?
Total?

Just wondering, thanks

They have that option on the newer Mastercrafts. It may even be standard now....not sure. It was on every new MC at the dealers I have been too :D

Looks sharp. I like the added folding seat bottom to. but - I'm not sure it was ready for new skins. I could still see some vinyl.

Do ya think the previous owner thought the only way to get rid of the pink seats was to cut out the offending material?? ;)

The Governor
08-16-2005, 09:15 AM
Thanks for all the comments! She was truly a diamond in the rough. As of right now I have about $8100 in the whole thing! :dance:

The seat idea came from looking at new boats first. And then I took this boat out and ended up putting my knee in the seat all day, or sitting up on the seat back. I had to do something. So someone on here (thanks East TX!!) suggested I check out the www.wakesiderides.com "how-to" section. They had an article on there explaining what to do. And the rest is history.

Gov :D

Great lookin' interior. I'm glad there are people out there like you that aren't afraid to tackle a restoration. I would start to hyperventilate just thinking about how much work would be involved. I want water ready! Great job, Gov.

Bert
08-16-2005, 10:35 AM
Wow, that looks great. To think I was worried about fixing the observer seat in mine. Your project shows any thing can be done and quickly.

Davo

Sweet, you're stoked. Good call on the pop up observer seat. It's time to hit the water!

Someone asked how do they not to allow their vinyl to get in the condition that the Gov's was prior....well per Bret's recommendation on the "Which Protectant" thread in the Maintenance section, I've been using VINYLEX by Lexol for a couple months now and the stuff works great. It really penetrates and softens the vinyl to keep it from drying. It also acts as a sunscreen like the 303. One look at Bret's boat and I knew it had to work well!

Don't Use Armorall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! It Will Rot Out The Stiching From The Inside. Use Any Clear Based Protectant!

SkiDog

Do NOT by any means use Armorall protectant on your seats! It will rot out the seams from the inside. You can however use any clear based protectant.

I bet that feels nice after a nice close shave.

The Governor
08-16-2005, 09:31 PM
Yeah, I bought some 303 today from Boaters World, and I ordered some Vinylex....I figured I see which one I like best. But after looking at Bret's boat, I think I'm gonna like the Vinylex better.

We'll see.

Gov :D
