Default Bertram 'resto'....Hermco bracket

Just thought I would share a pic of my Hermco bracket that was custom fit for the resto project. Don Herman also did some quality fiberglass work as needed. He dry mounted the bracket and I did the permanent mounting after the gelcoat on bottom of the bracket was matched to the rest of the boat.

Sweet sweet ride! Very classy. I like the color coordination with the hull, bracket and Yamis. The boot stripe really sets it off. Nice work.

Nice, nice ride! Don builds a really nice bracket. I'm totally satisfied with mine and his customer service. Mine was "scratched" in shipping. Don sent me the gel coat repair materials, emery cloth, etc. on his dime including shipping.

The entire boat has been re- gel coated with Spectrum......they did a color match to my liking no problem. Surface cure....used Patch-Aid. Windshield, top of bracket and engines used Imron.

Wow! Absolutely spectacular build! The word "interior space" gets a whole new meaning in a B28 Moppie with no engine hatches...

Do you have some detail on the dash and (as it seems) flush mounted Garmin?

Great work!

Here is the dash.....Bert gets coaming bolsters on entire perimeter. Have not figured out the seating, but much prefer to use either bean bags or a few aluminum folding deck chairs. I am also getting full canvas and Bimini top..no side curtains as boat is purely a day boat with only a few overnights each season. Also I am having the bimini top engineered to fit inside on top of dash when collapsed...gobs of room for that!

Few more pics....used Awlgrip-.Awlbrite on floor and teak deck wrap. On floor also sprinkled in sandblasting glass beads for non skid....working out great as the grip is substantial.[ATTACH][ATTACH]Name:  20140702_213349.jpg

I have the same boat, also outboard powered but with a transom....no bracket.. After seeing your pictures some months ago, I had mine Awlgripped sides and bottom. It looks great for a 36 year old boat. I really like the flush deck in yours, but I have filled the engine area in mine with a big tank, and lots of storage.
I have plenty of canvas on ours, and it helps to keep passengers out of the sun here in Fl.
Enjoy your Moppie...........there aren't that many of them.

Very nice! Love the idea of putting the switches on the side, very clean!
