Thanks. No I worked from a home and lot of the work was a first time. I researched a lot of the work on the web making using of yacht building forums as well as the Teamtalk forum. I have access to friends and family in the upholstery and auto body shop business, so made use of those.

I wanted a finish that had no carpet as carpet is firstly difficult to clean and we have 3 kiddies who inevitably land up bringing sand and mud into the boat. Hence the reasonoing behind the teak floor. The side panels were laid with 3mm cork/rubber composite. This is exactly the same material they use for making cork gaskets. The sheets were very inexpensive and came in 1 x 1 meter sizes. The joint between the teak and the cork gasket was done with a marine sikaflex for nice finishing.

the engine has been very well maintained. I just replaced the leaky valve cover gaskets and had to replace exhaust manifold gaskets as well. The sight of the engine lets the boat down a bit but will need to scrape together more funds and approach the engine next year....watch this space

Thanks...coming from someone who used to build CC, thats a great complement. I used FRAUSCHER www.frauscherboats.com and CHRISCRAFT sites for inspiration in doing the finishes. I loved the silver bullet! The single tone upholstery was CC inspired, although I decided to break it a bit with the double top stitch.

bow teak detail

I have had quite a few questions about the teak finsh on the bow. Some have thought it is a special spray job , others asking about whether laminates were used. Basically I used 50mm x 4mm burmese teak strips that were rough cut to shape and bedded in polyurethane bonding agent. The edges were shaped and the gaps between the strips were filled with a flexible marine epoxy, natural colour. The edges where the glass met the wood had to be filled with polester filler and shaped to look clean and flawless. Enjoy the pics.

Step 1
I purchased soem teak from a guy who had some leftover after doing a yacht job. I had it machnined to strips of 50mm x 4mm. The strips were dry laid on the bow and rough cut to shape. They were then screwed in positioned with the screws used to create equal gaps. The screw positions were marked and each piece was coded so that I knew where to put it when the bedding compound had been put down.

Step 2
The screws and marked/coded pieces were removed. Surface was prepped with 60 grit and acetone washed. Polyurethane bedding compound was applied to both surfaces and the pieces were put back into positon and screwed into place.
After drying the screws were removed and the teak was shaped with 80/120 sandpaper to original the profile of the bow.

Step 3
The seams had to be filled with epoxy and the edges had to be keyed ( hundreds of small drill holes ) and filled with a variety of polyester fillers ranging from medium to fine, then hand shaped and refilled till perfect.

I know it has been said so many times, but WOW! I love the tidy, and this is as tidy as it gets. Has the same feel as the CC Silver Bullet, and the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The teak is just amazing. The color combination could easily be picked up by MC and it would sell like hotcakes. Looks very regal. My hats off to you not only for the high quality build, but in your choice of materials and colors.
