Hi All, new glassic owner here on Cape Cod. Long story short is we have a nice recent Chaparral that is a wonderful boat....make that appliance. I wanted something with character and style, but am not at the wood boat stage yet; retired:-) Found this Resorter and giving it a fluff and buff over the Winter as well as some moderate r&m; electrical, hoses, etc. She runs fine and I am looking forward to the project and getting her in the water next Spring.
My first boat project, so i expect to be here looking for advice. Happy Holidays all!
Well may I say welcome aboard, glad you're here and very nice choice!!! Don't know if you know it but there's a Century Boat Club. They're on facebook, if you have an account. I'm a member there as well as here. Post any questions you have and we'll be glad to answer as best we can. There's a lot of smart people on here that can help.
Some progress. I have all of the gauges working, new horns, led bow light (identical in appearance to the original) and replaced the only really soft wood on the boat; the vinyl covered plywood panels on the fore and aft decks. I went for a teak laminate, but kept all of the original panels.
These are pics of the test fits, so not perfect when I took the pics.
Hmmm.... I posted then ran out to dinner, just rechecked.
These were final test fits, so trim isn't perfect and boat is dirty. better now.
Also, the original wiper motors aren't available, and the ones currently available move down a fair amount from park before they reverse their sweep and they must be mounted so they park as I have them. Luckily, they don't really obstruct vision anywhere near as much as you would expect....not that I have much choice.
