1989 Tri-Star 190 Restore

Ok I haven't been on the forum for a while, but once again I'm looking for some advice. I have had my boat for 4 years, and I was considering selling it to purchase a new NXT. After having a baby, my mind changed to a restore it. Im wanting to to the following:

1) Replace interior
2) Linex the floor
3) Repair gelcoat and replace rub rail
4) Repair dash and replace gauges
5) Wakeboard Tower
6) Sound System
7) Trailer Repair

Now my question is, has anyone linex your floors? I know some people hate the idea.

Anyone know of a upholstery shop in the Upstate South Carolina Region?

I recommend taking the boat to Viper Customs in Maryville, TN. I hauled mine 4 hours and it was totally worth it. Their work is top shelf and they went out of their way to be helpful.

Too, Viper did some fiberglass work on mine in addition to the upholstery and carpet.

Yeah I have seen there work, I just don't know were I could find the time to take it up there. Plus, I don't think my trailer would even make it right now.

Linex? As in like RhinoLiner? Spray on bedliner?

I found this stuff called Monstaliner that I am thinking of using in my compartments. Pretty cool stuff. Leaves a textured finish without having the grit.

Well, I contacted the Line-x Dealer in my area. He said he does boats all the time. I originally got the idea from a friend thats wanting to do his boston whaler. Here are some pics from the internet of a whaler with it on the deck.

So, I have been busy with work. Here are some issues that need to be addressed...

The center fiberglass floor panels are super weak. I'm thinking of replacing the center sections with marine grade polymer sheeting.

Im also thinking of getting rid of the rear bench seat and installing flip down seats like below. One one on each side and leave the center open.

I re-did the rear bench, but instead of having one bottom cushion, did it with 3 cushions.
Link.
Better pictures, with new upholstery.




The added storage is nice.
