1990 Maristar 210 Restoration

Well I started the big overhaul this February. Got the boat back from the upholstery shop on 4/18. We are definitely pleased with the work. Some of you may not like the color scheme, it is definitely different!

Here is the teak swim platform and cooler cover refinishing process started. It was in pretty sorry shape! We start the wood lightening process this evening. We are using the Starbrite three step system.

Couple of the After shots of the interior. These were taken with my cell phone so the quality is not so hot!:

Here is the teak going through the brightening process. First pics are of them after the rinse off, second are 18 hours later after fully drying. Gonna try to oil them later today if it gets sunny enough outside. I'll also try to post pics of the interior now that it is complete.
I don't think I've done a project lately that has been quite as rewarding as this one. Nothing like seeing the wood come so clean from 18 years of neglect and filth and have it turn out so nice. Thanks to everyone who has posted pics and tutorials. I didn't do all the sanding process that Harold suggests (only two rounds instead of six) but I think it is gonna look great after the oil.

After Brightener applied, wood still wet:

Looks like a fun project. It just sucks that it got that bad. Did you pick it up like that?

Yep. It has 230 hours on it (100+ from leaving the key in the on position) and sat on a lift virtually uncovered for 7-8 years.

I agree...those before shots were awful. Mine doesn't look that bad, but I am looking to re-work my upholstery soon. Where did you get the new upholstery and did you do it all yourself?

I re-did my swim platform and cover this past winter. That first layer of sanding is the worst.

I took mine to a place here in Raleigh called AFC Upolstery. They did the carpet and all recovering of the seats plus new foam and a little bit of wood for $2800. Took about 4 weeks because we had some bad weather and the boat was actually outside. They kept getting delayed on the carpet install.
