Extreme Measures... Make Over Edition
 
So, I finally got fed up with the damaged gel coat and not being able to get a shine on the boat. See thread https://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/...-gel-help.html . Also the outdated paint needed to be brought into the 2000's. This was always in the back of my mind when I purchased the boat in 2016. This summer it was expedited. I was talking to my friend (painter) at the start of the summer. I was checking out a couple boats he had just finished up. I was jokingly telling him I needed to get my boat painted in the next few years. He answered back "If I wanted to get it painted this summer he would use it as filler work between summer repairs". We worked out some details and we had a deal.
.
I told him I would DA off the painted graphics and all the clear coat (80, 220, 320 grit). I would bring the boat to him in a 320 grit ready for filler prime and block sand. And so the fun began...
Some of you might have already seen the pics on other social media platforms.

When he received the boat they started repairing all the stress cracks in the hull. And there were a lot. Also I uncovered some damage under the paint. They also filled the unused holes in the transom and old generator exhaust holes.
