Made new side panels for my '96 205 and coated them in fiberglass resin. I'll be bringing them to the upholsterer next week. The rest of the interior is already there being recovered.

Thanks! I debated whether or not to use particle board ( I had it lying around ) or invest in marine ply. Since coating the particle board with resin, I am confidant in my decision.
I'll post photos of the interior once I get everything back.

Looking forward to seeing this! I've been debating rebuilding mine to better suit my needs in that area, plus so they can handle some larger speakers in the back.

Nice work. Considering adding them to my '77 which didn't come with them. Looks like a project I could handle.

Having the old parts as templates made the job pretty easy. The only tricky part was the length. On this boat the side panels are over 8ft long...the sheets of particle board I had were 8x4ft (1/4" thick). I had to butt-join a piece on the end to achieve the required overall length.

That length would add to the challenge.

What Work did you do on your Mastercraft Today?

Took the boat out for the first time since October--basically a maintenance check and to move the fluids around. Sunny, but chilly--55 air / 49 water. Was a bit worried as we had below freezing temps for several days in Charlotte and I was out of town so could not monitor (garage kept). She started right up and ran fine for the hour I was out. Since I had been freezing up in Minneapolis all week, it was great to be out in reasonable weather! Was my first solo launch / retrieve, and good to practice without any ramp traffic.

Did a little cleaning and trailer maintenance when I got home. Noticed I'm due for new bearing oil. Finished up by installing some boat related organizers in the garage.
