TOPIC: ‘56 valco royal

‘56 valco royal 3 months 4 days ago #138627

While working this year I found a second boat that I couldn’t live without in northern Minnesota. My brother in law checked it out for me then brought it home later for me to pick up after I was done working for the year. It’s a 1956 valco royal. The interior has seen better days but I won’t feel bad bringing her back with a newer 4 stroke hanging off the back.

Finished tear down this week before a little vacation.


New 3/4 marine floor before it gets sealed


Straightening out the angle aluminum getting it ready as part of the seat base.



Had to cut down the original front mount for the new seating location. I’m 6’-2 and wouldn’t have a comfortable ride in their previous placement. New angle and box in place ready for a bolt in setup.




Flip back buckets were the right fit for how I’ll use this boat. Start back up next week with making some more progress.

Finished the seat base. Made a new transom amd dash before dying the wood and sealing it. Started painting the inside of the bow seafoam and laid a coat of epoxy resin before some sanding and fairing compound on the topside. .

Mounted the new tilt steering wheel on the finished dash. Time to refinish the steering wheel.


Have plenty of leg room even at 6’-2 thanks to a bow fuel tank.


Ready to final mount the transom and finish painting the rear of the boat.


A layer of epoxy resin made it on the floor and seat mount.
