Just sanding I started in the 80 to 120 range! I bought one of those cheapy black and decker mouse sanders to get in between the slats. I figured it was a good time to stop when I could see these shiny dots starting to show up! Yes they were the screws! I think it adds a touch of character!

I do have some pics I'll post them tomorrow when I'm home from work. I epoxied and glassed the backers in (sprayed threads with pam so epoxy won't stick). Waited for a full cure and sprayed in foam. Trimmed foam off flush and two layers of fiberglass and epoxy over the holes. My holes were pretty large as the previous owners had used two plastic access covers to seal their holes from their previous repair attempt, which would have been great except they glued them shut and the only way I could get them out was with a large pry bar. I also sealed the bolts as they came through the hull with the 3m Marine goo. The good weather is coming but I'm still looking at snow from my house and the lake needs about thirty feet of water before the ramps are even wet! (should be about two weeks) there are some good pics in post 17 of the cover and hole and sporty posted some pics of his glass work and it is top notch compared to mine. And a before shot..

So to wrap this up,
Things I've learned:
Use screws in your rubrail that will mount flush I have small bumps transfering through the vinyl.
My carpet seam on the drivers side where the side meets the floor looks alittle hackey to me should have done a better job cutting
Wish I would have wet sanded the whole hull before buffing the small spots where I repaired Gel coat look better then the rest.
When having windshield powder coated sand mating areas before beating with large hammer.


The damages:
Gel coat restoration kit Classic Motoring $109.95
Raka Epoxy and Fiberglass $167.00
West Marine rubrail and insert 363.95
radio shack switches and fuse holders $31.68
Eastwood Auto Jeweling kit $36.94
Overtons carpet and glue $156.79
Stellar signs Registration decals $23.00
ace hardware Misc. $60.92
CarQuest steering wheel $54.17
Bay Area Water Sports Seat slides and ying yang stickers $86.95
DIM Misc???? $160.00
Sign a Rama large side MC decals $35.00

Total $1286.35

So under $1500 and I'd say around fifty hours(???) the boat looks pretty good.
TB
