OK, some of you guys talked me into restoring my boat instead of selling it. Now you must suffer through my restoration diary. First step was to replace the upholstery and carpet. Here's a few "Before and After" pics.

I'm in the process of buffing the gel coat right now, finished the front deck and starboard side hull last night. Going to do some more today. I'll post before and after pics here when its done.

I'm using the kit pictured here and bought a Vector circular buffer from them as well. It's working great and real easy with the circular buffer. Thanks to Bump for giving me info and inspiration:

BTW, anybody know of a good cleaner that will easily remove pinstripe tape residue? I tried alcohol and nail cleaner remover and some old car bug and tar remover, but it's not working too easily, the stuff just gums up and still sticks to the hull.

That is so worth the money. I think you could sell the boat for more now than what you would have asked before, to the point it would have covered the cost of reskinning.

(Although we all know it isn't going up for sale NOW)

Looks great!!!!!!!!!

Thanks! Notice that the "After" pics are in the garage? I told the wife that's where she's going to stay for now on! (the boat that is) ;)
