Believe it or not, I'd be interested in the old vinyl. I'd like to have it to possibly repair some of mine. Let me know if we could work out a deal. Call Keith at 972-998-1885 and leave a message and a number if I don't answer.

What a beauty. Love that hull design. She'll definitely turn heads.

Yeah I am dying to see what the upholstery looks like. Do you know the brand and type of upholstery you are using. It is impossible to find the exact same stuff that originally came in the boat unfortunately. As for the pop up cleats, this is something I have been considering doing on my boat, but am concerned about spiderwebbing the gel coat which is in perfect shape right now. Did you do any reinforcing behind the cleats. How many did you put in total. Can you show some more pics of the cleats. It would be appreciated.

Heck, it looks so good, I would just keep it there in the garage and sit in it and take pictures of it!! I was very close to keeping my 84 when I bought the 07, but I couldn't pass up the trade value.

thanks folks. The support from this group makes it all worthwhile. I might just take it to the marina and show it off. Nah...what good is a mastercraft if ya can't slalom behind it...
I'll have the upholstery all back by next weekend. Hope to have it together early April. I'll post more pics then.
As far as cleats, there was extra reinforcement in the area near the windsheild where I put them. I tapered out the gelcoat after drilling holes, so as to prevent spider cracking..will see how that works.

This has been quite a project, but well worth the time spent.
