  • Sea Nymph GLS 195 restoration

    Well today I began pulling the flooring on the sea nymph. Had a little spare time today and figured it was time to start the project. Floor was shot which I already knew. Some of the foam was wet, some wasnt so far. I pulled most everything behind the windshield and in front of the splashwell. Nothing too concerning showed up besides one support was cracked at the tip. Also something i havent seen on the forums from other peoples tear downs was these aluminum plates what were below the wood on top of the cross supports. They were under where the front seats went. Not sure if these should go back in when the new flooring goes in or not. The front seats are pedestal seats with no holes needing drilled. I got lucky with this part of the foam. I could just grab it and pull it out. As always, pics...

        I think you should ask a Mod to combine your two threads. It'll make it easier for the members to follow along.

          As only the last couple posts in the other topic were specific to boat rebuilding, rather then shopping for parts, he asked together or seperate, and I told him, his choice.

              Can anyone tell me how this windshield​ comes off? Looking under the consoles you can see 3 sheet metal screws coming out of the front of the windshield. I'm guessing I have to pull the rubber piece out of the windshield but I'm not sure. I can take more pictures if needed, just let me know. Any guesses?

                Watermann redid a similar Sea Nymph.

                IIRC, yep, rubber trim piece comes out. Be careful w it, you'll want to put it back in...

                  My SN didn't have the windshield but I would say that those screws are machine screws not sheet metal and they go into a type of T nut that sits in the channel to hold the frame in place on the console. Have you tried turning out the screws yet?

                    There is no way to turn the screws except with a pair of vice grips. Here's what I'm talking about.




                    Also, how does that rubber piece come out? There's rivets holding the windshield together, do I have to remove them?

                      Oh man, I assumed they went the other way! Yeah that's not a very good way to attach a windshield. It does look as though you'll have to remove the vinyl strip to get at the heads just be careful not to ruin it.

                        Does this mean the windshield has been taken off before? I'd like to figure out what's factory on this boat and what's not, or what's been touched at least, just so I know. Also, how does that vinyl/rubber strip come out? It doesn't look like it will come out without taking the window frame apart.

                          Do the ends of the vinyl strip go underneath the frame sides? It doesn't look like the windshield has been removed before in the pics I see. I'm just used to seeing startcraft windshields fastened down with t bolts with washers and nuts.

                            Yes, it looks like the vinyl goes under the frame on the sides.

                              Yep, phillips head screws under that rubber trim. On my SFM that trim is a foam rubber made by taylormade.
