restoring a 1967 Boston Whaler
« on: Aug 27, 2020, 11:19 AM »
My wife inhereted this great little fishing boat 2 years ago and we finally are getting around to restoring it a little bit. It was left out in the elements for over 10 years so none of the wood was good enough to reuse. just thought I would start sharing the process

The unsinkable legend!! I had a 19' Dauntless for a few years in Maine with a 60hp Etec. What a great boat, enjoy!

I donít much care for Whalers.
But please understand that I do appreciate their toughness and also the fact that millions of other people cannot be wrong.
Please keep sharing because I am a fan of boats in general and can also appreciate the pleasure and personal satisfaction from working on them.
Thanks for sharing!!

Its deffinitely a type of boat my wife and i wouldve never sought after, but because of the family sentimental value of it and being able to redo it in honor of her grandpa has made it really grow on us

Finished refinishing the outside of the boat, 2x rubbing compound with 8" buffer wheel, 2x polish compound, finished off with a nice wax finish, and some brand new stickers. Pics to come when can get home and get some good ones taken. Now my trailer needs a nice "pick-me-up"
