Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Seabird,
Thanks for the reply. It worked good. If I ever did it again, I could make it better I'm sure. Tough job no matter how you slice it. Appreciate your input!

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Worked on the bottom paint some last weekend. I mixed up Seabirds (thanks again!) lye concoction and gave it a shot. I had some trouble getting a decent consistency - I think because I added the lye to quickly and it clumped instead of dissolving evenly. But I continued mixing until I had something ...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Fuzz - wish i had your setup to flip!

VTJeff - pretty Cheetah! Bet that was a cool boat. Love the horn! Thanks for the encouragement.

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Cut chase tubes and gave them an extra collar of glass. Then glassed in the console with the intent of not screwing it down. Put a layer of thickened epoxy under existing flange and then used 1708 on all three sides of the interior. Seems pretty stout but the real test will come on the water. Sorry,...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Just to keep things moving and document this build, I'll add this tiny nugget. Patched some holes previously used to mount my livewell: before: https://i.ibb.co/18fjRGM/IMG-2249.jpg https://i.ibb.co/HxmdtzC/IMG-1845.jpg not a perfect match, but better than it was: https://i.ibb.co/TDGzWPG/IMG-3258.j...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Fuzz - yeah, sucks...pretty labor intensive. Seabird - thanks for the lye tip. I have not heard of that one. Just read up on it a bit. I will try that this weekend. It is going to be pretty warm and wet here, so good conditions for letting it sit for a day or two prior to scraping off. Hoping I can ...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Jeff / Seabird, Thanks for the comments. You are correct, I should have sanded in between 1 & 2 per directions. I feel like most of those two coats were removed while working on the initial orange peel. I intend to use perfection on hullsides and cap. Platinum on sides, and matterhorn white on cap. ...

Here is the motor I have for her, pretty excited about finding this. 2006 F90. Very clean. I would really like to get the stern painting complete so i could move it over and rig.

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

I really wanted to knock out priming the interior as well but need to clean the boat out really well prior to that. Currently it doesn't drain well enough for that. I adjusted my cribbing to drop the stern more but just wasn't going to work with ease. I will have to put her back on a trailer, then c...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

I've been getting some work done as of late. I've put 3 coats of interlux epoxy primekote on the entire cap and exterior hullsides to the chine. Sanded after 2 coats with 120. Found a few spots that required additional filling. Filled and faired those, sanded and put a final coat of primer on. Sande...
