And a gratuitous picture of my Mustang-



[/QUOTE]

Gary, your 'Stang is gorgeous! I am now inspired to someday restore mine to a (hopefully) similar glory... with a sweet tower on it, though    Let's just hope it doesn't take ten years to start like it did Pete


Pete, thanks for the info and I'll definitely be checking that out after I get the engine tuned up. I'm so excited to work on it. Too bad I'll have to spend this Sunday with my mom   I can only hope the stringers are good, but with the condition the boats in, I'm a little concerned. Oh well, one thing at a time, I guess.

By the way, are boats "shes"? Are you supposed to name yours?

I believe that to be the general rule/guideline. Unless it is a ship of war - they always seem to be named for men. I guess a lot of cargo ships too, so maybe not, all though even boats named after men are still referred to "She." You're right it is pretty confusing...

That shade of green when wet sanded and buffed out will be way cool. Enjoy the process of restoration. But be careful.....it may start to consume you and you will want more and more and more!

Thanks and I agree. To clarify, these boats are made of wood and fiberglass, right? So the sides are paint on fiberglass? How about the white top? I used to refinish cars so I've got a 7"/9" buffing/grinding wheel and an orbital polisher to sic on it. Not familiar with wet sanding, but I'm only a YouTube education away from feeling trained It's way more fun to day dream about cosmetics because after I read the threads on stringers, I'm ***************g scared!

Fiberglass hull. The only wood is in the framework in the bottom of the hull, i.e. the stringers and associated framework, Footboard and in your case, front seat frames (maybe?) are wood. If the boat has not been messed with, there is no paint. The hull and deck are gel coat on fiberglass. Looks to be factory colors so I would say it is still the original gel coat.
