Default My 1968 Boston Whaler project

How to post pics from mac? Or am I just in an new member activation waiting period.. I got this a couple months ago and have sanded a lot and am just wondering will I have to sand all the way through the gel through out the whole boat? Spider cracks and craters everywhere, with one patch. Beside that the boat is solid and not waterlogged. I bought a marine filler product I was going to use to fill and fair the cracks and craters but am wondering if that will be enough? Whats my best options for painting the whole boat as well? spraying or rolling and tipping? Awlgrip? Will be uploading pictures shortly hopefully.

For the crazing I would say sand the hell out of it, and grind out the large cracks with a dremel and fill with a putty (I used west systems on my 13 footer). Then sand that down and if you want, throw some fiberglass over it to strengthen it up just to ensure those cracks don't re appear. Good luck and post lots of pics

Good luck with the renovation. Never noticed those strakes on the bottom of my '67 Nauset. There's a few Whaler resto threads going now search them and you'll see/hear how others are tackling the same issues you are. Good luck!

We've been looking for you on www.continuouswave.com/whaler/ but have not seen any posts. You won't be able to post pictures there but you can provide a link to a photobucket or some other picture hosting site.

You're kinda sorta almost wasting your time here although you will get a few valuable recommendations.

Wow. You did a nice job on that bottom.

I am in the middle of a very similar project. I have a '70 13' classic sport with a '89 evinrude 40hp. The boat interior is prepped and ready for Tuff Coat in whaler blue while we are still working on the wood. Th at is being treated with 3 coats of west system epoxy and then 3 coats of varnish. I still need to flip it to sand and paint the bottom before I do the interior though.

Good luck with the rest of your project.

Jeff
