TOPIC: trim out questions for '59 Seafair Sedan

trim out questions for '59 Seafair Sedan 2 months 1 week ago #146713

So, I am almost finished with my "re-restore". Putting everything together, and I have a few questions.

-What do folks do to finish out the inside side panels in the main cabin? This is the most unfinished looking piece of the whole boat to me, and I don't know what to do within reason to adjust this

-inside trim on cuddy cabin? I have some leftover Wefco hatch gasket that looks pretty good. It sticks out a bit. I don't mind the black in the cabin along the side. Any other ideas?

-Where do you get those small rubber stoppers for the window?

Trying to get these all tidied up and get the boat on the water!!

Thanks!

Ian

Hello Texan,

Looks like you have spotted light at the end of the tunnel.

I stuck to original, and it looks as it should for a 1959 level of finish. The Zolatone coating smoothed things out and covered lots of sins back in the day.


That is Wefco #7CH and is the same profile Glasspar originally used on the hatch cover and is glued on using contact cement.






Also used to trim out bottom of helm panels.

Cut a .25” piece of the Wefco EDPM and glue in at the end of the cabin window channel.

Thanks,
Terry

@terrydi I continue to marvel at your boat. Its pretty much the gold standard for a '59 restore. Real inspiration!

I had that hatch gasket up in the cuddy. Used contact cement. Made a big mess, and never could get it to stick well. I'm gonna try something with a thinner channel. I do like your idea for trimming the bottom of the helm panels. That is great!

I've got a couple of gelcoat repairs from taking the boat off the blocks. Other than that just small bits and bobs. Hoping to get out this weekend!
