  • 88 Sprint bass boat

    so my newest project has been this bass boat, figured would be perfect for crabbing and not beating up the Monishka, as with any boat it had some "tlc needed"
    lol
    finally got the mercury running well but sold it for more hp 115 mariner

    new floor needed so did that

    new gauges,wi fi fish finder and breaker box , had it all back in and bam the plexi cracks working on wood dash now

    engine runes great but it looked aged so i refinished it , installed new water pump , and rectifier changed lube.

    couldn't find a replacement front plate so was forced to use the dented one


    replacing the old tilt tube was easy
    next up before dash goes back in is im thinking of coating the whole boat top side with raptor bedliner , just because its tintable and will provide a good non slick surface for crabbing and stuff , i feel it will hold up better to crabpots and other things then if i was to use paint. and dont want any carpet to deal with.

                  so i gutted it today, lol decided to paint the whole top cap instead of just floor , looking for ideas on what kind of paint to use for a nice shine and durability or would i just be better to use the raptor bedliner coat on the topside since ill be bouncing crabpots around ?

                        and this is my issue i get driven and wind up just going wide open , sanded the entire thing with 60 grit then in the lil compartment doors and corners i used a dremel tool to scuff up really good then on rest i just used paper by hand what i couldn't hit with my square pointed or round orbital sanders.

                        took 7 litres of raptor liner but its nice and thick and i bet it holds up well, i did remove the rub rail and all else i could to make it as complete clean as possible, im still not sure about this color cream but i don't care for blinding white and blue was super hot lol.

                        I will paint the sides of the boat after i can get it in water and mark a water line thinking of making it same color as monishka was red sides with the cream looks nice.
                        my yard is fastly approaching clean up time lol

                            coming along, the eyelid over instrument panel came out decent, i figured that would keep sun off of them and weather.
