MariStar 225 Stern Job



Not sure if this link worked, has anyone done or thought about filling in the pre-98 stern on the MariStars? I doodled this up on the computer for what I may do...

That's actually really cool! I like that look. Reminds me of the Riva Aquarama...


Might be a heck of a project, but it'll look pretty cool when it's done.

The more I look at it, the more I like it! I think it modernizes the look of the boat. Do you think you'll execute the modification, and if you do, what's your plan?

I've got no idea! Figured vertical aluminum or galvie u channel, grind down through gelcoat in areas where supports attached and edges of transom that tied in to new glass...I think I'm too chicken to do it really...

When I first saw your mockup, I was thinking a giant block of foam, shaped to give you the curves you wanted, then fiberglass over that. Maybe there's a way to make it as a removable block, held in place with a few screws, that could be removed if needed. Like a hard version of a snap-on bow cover or something. Either way, I really like the look- makes the boat look sleek and modern.

Glass over some 8# foam, that's an idea... Very non-committal... Could do some hardware with metal sleeves for rigidity. I like it, great idea!

Btw one reason I know this is feasible is I have a couple buddies in the stucco business who have custom foam cut with computer 3d companies all the time... The void could be filled with tight tolerances and glass applied.
