Sea Nymph Striper CC-191 (Reborn)

Post by SaltyBuckster »

This is going to be pretty much just an interior redo.Totally!Going to be reflooring it with aluminum.I could'nt get a great pic in the guys driveway.But this one shows what we are in for.It has'nt been near water for 5 years or more.The motor spins freely,I'll start there.Trying to get it to start.It was winterized,thank goodness and the cylinders look good and the plugs came out rustfree.This is going to be a "winter Project" my goal is to have it ready for the spring striper season.

I'd start with a good bath before it gets too cold out! That is going to be a cool looking boat for striper fishing.

Trailer looks like it's in pretty good shape. Blast that with some black paint and it'll look great.

I started tearing into it yesterday.I removed the rear floor decking and started tracing wires.I got the trim motor back in place and all the wires connected to it again in the correct place.In the process of removing the in floor fuel tank.Lots of crud down in the V of the boat,wanna get it all cleaned out.I removed all the teak wood and am going to get it put back where it belongs to have one thing done before it gets to cold.I'll start there for the next day or so resanding and using linseed oil to finish the wood.

The foam was a little damp in places.What do you think?Should I tear it up and replace it?

If the foam is damp that ='s extra weight. It can be a pain to remove the foam but I think it may be worth the time, energy, and cost. Just my opinion.

Boat looks like it has great potential good luck.

I'm going to check the foam out a little more intensly before I start tearing it out.The deck is all good but one spot.It does have the self baleing deck,so that's another obstacle to putting a lowered deck into it.3/4 inch plywood going down to 1/8 inch aluminum.I've got to figure all this out before I start ripping good stuff out.

You could use a hole saw and cut out a core to see if the foam is wet all the way thru. That should give you a good idea on how wet it really is.

Good luck
