Here’s how progress is going on the restoration of this 21ft river cruiser. As you can see she has come a long way from when she arrived. I’ve had to practically sand her right back to the gelcoat to get the crappy paint job off. Unbelievably when she was first painted whoever did it didn’t even bother to give the boat a wash. There were black streaks of tar or something under the paint. What is more amazing is that the paint hd stayed on so long. I did a bit of tidying up on the surface of the hull bottom there were a few bits of filler that needed smoothing and as you can see I then primed the bottom ready for the new antifoul.
Work is ongoing on the new canopy and I should have pictures of that next week. If you would like to discuss having your own boat restored why not contact Tiernan Roe, by phoning +353 (0)28 38973 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
