Order of Restoration?

What order of Restoration would you recomend? stringers, Floor, carpet, swim platform, gel coat, rub rail, decals. Thinking it would be multiple winter projects. Any thoughts? TB

well, you have to get the stringers before the floor and carpet. the other stuff is detail work, that can be done over time. Such as once you have the floors done, the engine mounted etc it is a boat. The other stuff is then just cosmetic, so if you went for a cruise w/o having new decals it would not cause problems with performance.

your order looks pretty good in my opinion. make sure it isn't leaking by the rub rail fairly early on.

Do it however you want. I did my hull resto in one winter. The engine the next winter. You can do it all in one if you want to work some late nights.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm hoping a good buffing will clean up gel coat, needs new rub rail and swim platform attachment. The carpet is shot and the floor has a "delamination" problem (bubble on drivers side my engine cover). And as far as that go skiing thing see photos! When we move the plow truck (in about three months) the boat can come out to playTB

Wow, that boat looks pretty good from here! Those old Stars & Stripes are so cool. Almost bought a 1984 before finding my '89 PS. Some days I wish I had the '84 . . .
That's an awesome pic showing all that snow - I'm jealous! Where are you at?
