Default IMP 310 Rebuild/modification

I thought that I would share a little project of mine (That became bigger) a rebuild/modification of an old IMP310.
The boat is a -89 310-Eleganza with busted engines which I bought from a customer.

Almost all of the mess caused by the broken engines cleaned up here.

From the beginning I was only going to change the engines and fix some of the interior.
But one thing led to another and later on during the project everything went a little out of hands.

Made som templates for new instrumentation.

Here we have laminated the stern to make room for Bravo transom instead of the previous TRS.

We also removed the skyport and laminated with Divinycell.

I couldn’t decide what rub rail to choose so I decided to make the boat seamless instead.

Great looking boat. Nice job. Keep the pics coming. I owned an IMP and had a ball with it.
