I picked up my first inboard boat at he end of last summer. It was a 1 owner boat with under 200 hours on it and looked pretty rough. The gel coat was fully oxidized and chalky and the interior was shredded by a raccoon. After several quotes for new upholstery ranging between 3-4k I decided to to give it a shot myself. I have just finished that last pieces. The engine cover and the rear seat. I have a total of $350 in materials into this project. I'll post pics of the components. After I have put it all back together I'll post final pics.

I'm relatively pleased for have never done upholstery work before. Of course there are flaws that I will always notice but I think I can deal with it knowing I saved at least 2500

Nice work and congrats finding a 27 year old Prostar with only 200 hours in it!

My buddy had the same color '87 many years ago, very fun boat to slalom behind!

wow, fantastic job on the interior. I could not fathom going at a project like that, you have some serious skill!

Sweet find on the boat too, you will enjoy it even more this summer I think.

Thanks a lot skier. It was a pretty big job but it turned out pretty to be a rewarding project. I have decided that I am going to redo the side panels and make it like it was originally. I bought he plywood today and I plan to start to start not frame work tomorrow. With any luck I'll have it done by the end oft he weekend.
