Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat continues with Episode 6.
We pick up with the 31-foot Contender remodeling project with the crew at the Marine Customs Unlimited.
In this episode, the team remodels the dash panel, rigs new Yamaha Outboard engines and installs beautiful black TACO Rub Rail with a stainless-steel insert.
Here’s an exclusive clip with the 31-foot Contender.
We also jump back in the warehouse with the 21-foot Paramount, which needed a complete overhaul from the inside out, including replacing the stringers, installing a new transom, replacing the boat cap and now painting the bottom.
Before they can paint the bottom, the team at MCU needs to do some fiberglass work to the bottom of the hull – smoothing out any trouble areas that may diminish the boat’s on-the-water performance and give it a perfect running surface.
To smooth out the hull, a straight edge is placed along the bottom to determine the high and low areas. Any low areas are marked and sanded down. Once the low sections are prepped for new fiberglass, the bottom outlines are traced on paper – providing the pattern from which to cut new fiberglass.
The fiberglass pieces are soaked in resin before being applied to the boat bottom. Once dry, the new fiberglass areas are sanded smooth and the bottom painted.
Here’s an exclusive clip with the 21-foot Paramount.
This episode also features a fully-remodeled 46-foot 1977 Whiticar named “Sabre,” which is now worth a staggering $1 million, and a project for a local environmental studies center that needed a new power pole installed on its boat “River Scout.”
