Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Paying $.50 a lb. for chain, anyone know if that's a good deal?

She is going to be stunning when she's done. I had a Nauticat 44 for many years. I love the quality of the Nauticat's.

Cost $415, or a bit more than a buck a foot. Shiny!

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Half polished here. Even more shiny! This is the original gel refinished to 1000 grit, with lots of repairs. Nice color match eh?

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

The hull came out nice, as usual. I don't believe a cruising boat should be painted. Much easier to repair panga gouges in gel.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

This is just after finish sanding 1000 and a single rough polish. It'll get polished again finer and then poly waxed with Awlcare. Then it'll really glow.
