This is a great thread.

I like the round access holes to get to the transom to thru bolt the swim platform. I was thinking about doing something like that when I need to perform this update. Do you think this was a good approach.

Were you able to install your plate with the studs attached through the access hole or did the floor need opened up more?

Thanks

I'm honored this thread keeps coming back from the dead! I had to re read the thread to even come close to answering your question. I can't for the life of me remember if I put the round access hatches back in or not???? It's been 4 years and i have never taken the teak off and have had no problems with it loosening up. The bolts were welded solid and everything was foamed so future access doesn't really seem to be a concern for me, but if you were trying to avoid some fiberglass work it's probably a great option. I think the brackets dropped in through the holes with no problems the only thing I vaguely remember is the bottom bolts were very close to the "floor" and proved difficult to line up. To all that find this thread in the future feel free to PM me as my sporadic wondering through team talk might cause me to miss this thread. TB

I’m selling a dozen new 1984-1985 MasterCraft dash switches. These have the clear paddle that illuminate green then change color to red when toggled on. These are new from the original manufacturer. Price is $13.00 which includes the silver adjustment nut and the threaded black plastic dash ring. Additional dash rings are $.50 each. Ask for Keith at 972-998-1885 in Dallas Texas.

Well I thoght I should ressurect and update this thread!! We nursed the interior along until last fall and tore it apart and used the old vinyl for patterns. Sewed on an old Singer I got off Craigslist, Mom was in for a week and helped a bunch! We're happy with the results for less than $400! While the seats were out I thought it was the right time to install new carpet (it was almost ten years old now!) As I was pulling up the carpet to my dissapointment the fiberglass repair peeled off the floor and stuck to the carpet! It looks like I didn't prep the original gel coat at all! So I sanded with 60 grit this time and re-re-glassed the repairs. I also thought it would be a good time to replace the exhaust manifold hardware becuase 15 years ago I had to weld on the bolts to get them out which is hard on the carpet. I had applied anti sieze to the new bolts way back then and they came out clean this time. Also buffed her out again, the precision auto kit was empty so I ended up with some 3m marine color restorer fro mthe local auto parts store. Worked well, boat wasn't oxidized too bad this time. Reinstalled the interior and all the new Aluminum vents I've been making. My wife and I had our first date in this boat 16+ years ago, the kid was 5 weeks old last time I put a bunch of work into it, she's now 9 1/2 and helped with the work.
