This corner of the boat fell off when it was lifted.

Typical tissue paper boat construction, plywood and chop matt.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

That'll keep someone busy! This owner thinks he's sharp because he bought the boat cheap to fix up after the insurance totalled it. He's nuts!

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

When I installed natural stone slabs I would polish to 1200 grit and even finer in some cases...until I began to ask myself why? I found most people couldn't see the diff beyond 600. But I sure do like shiny!

I currently have a 24' cruiser with 383 I/O. I'm adding 5' length to make a great dive platform. Maybe one day I will finish the project. All hand layed, none of what you show in the Bayliner pics. It's a heavy boat but I have full confidence when passing over the bar.

He also pays the bill. Don't bite the hand that feeds.

I am glad you said that about preferring gel coat. I agree with you on the ease of repair for gel coat and that is the reason we decided to go with it on the deck. I wish we could re-gel coat the topsides, but at some point in the boat's history, she was painted. So I guess the topsides will get some sort of paint.

I tend to set my quality of work for the discerning owner who CAN tell the difference. Not gonna dumb it down for newbies. If they don't know what they're paying for that's their loss, they can take it somewhere cheaper if they don't get it. In this case, it's my boat. I'd have taken her to 2000 if I had more time. We do a lot of 2000 blends on paint. It makes a difference. Put a gel hull finished 600 next to one finished 1000, and everyone will agree which one looks nicer, though they may not know why.

This guy is attempting to DIY a job we would refuse professionally, because its just not possible without the mold. No feeding there.

Yeah, the boss gets pissed with me when I talk people going cruising out of a paint job. Restoring the gel is much cheaper and makes much better sense for a boat that will see heavy use, especially in countries where people don't know what fenders are. I like to send them on their way with a big can of nice custom color match and a little instruction on gelcoat repair.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Any clue as to how that Bayliner got so messed up?
Charter or hurricane?
Probably one or the other.
Around here, I would guess charter.
Either that or he got rear ended in the Ballard locks by another charter.
