|One of the stabilizer fins. This thing weighs about 150 pounds and is 5' long!|
|A crate full of VERY expensive hardware.|
|One of the hydraulic actuators. This goes on top of the fin and moves it|
back and forth directed by the "brain box". Amazingly, it will eliminate more
than 90% of the roll of the boat in heavy seas.
|Sal applying the two-part epoxy hi-build primer. He's painted a lot of boats|
and really knows what he is doing. I'd mess it up if I tried to do this.
|Flybridge exterior primed|
|Back of pilothouse ready for sanding.|
|The flybridge interior. The helm isn't getting painted because I'm going to|
rebuild it next year to incorporate modern electronics.
|Flybridge bench seat all primed and looking good.|
|This is the lid after a few coats of final paint. WOW. Look at that gloss!|
|Nice looking doors. Super glossy, flaw free, and ready for|
another 10 years of service.
|Looking much nicer. The ladder opening is gone, the BIG old lights are gone.|
The terrible paint and texture are gone. Two small and efficient LED lights will
be flush mounted in the ceiling. It's looking SHARP.
|The inside lip converted from rough texture to smooth finish. I can't wait|
to see it with the final paint. These changes are going to really update
the look of the cockpit.
