    Default Our Deck Boat Build

    I love when you guys do a boat build so here goes mine. Will update as often as possible and try to keep it simple and to the point. I 'll do it here under Gregs section because he helps me so much with drag racing as well as recreational boating for my family and many or our friends

    Boat-1996 Silhoute 20.5" Deck Boat
    Trailer- 1996 Randall VIP

    Originally an outboard boat switching to Jet Family Boat. Kind of an uncommon boat but good potential I think and different too. Plus I bought the boat from Dan Nelson and he made me a great deal so it fits in the budget for us. Here are a couple of before pics so you can see the uglyness we started with.

    When I bought the boat from Dan Nelson he had Installed a Berkley Std Intake, Cut the hole for the jet, ripped out the floors and installed all new using the marine grade supplies. He also cleaned the gas tanks out and reglassed them back in the boat, and sent me home with boxes of new and old hardware for the it. He also got registration on boat and trailer all squared away.

    So a round trip to Pheonix and back from So Cal. and I have myself a project.

    Talked to some painters and Gel Coat guys and with a lot of previous history quickly decided to go with Greg at GS Marine. He assured me that it would be perfect Winter fill in work.

    I got Brian Wilcox (Leftys Pinstriping) a local friend, to draw up some graphics for the boat and eventually gave them to Greg and his guys to go for it

    In the meantime tore the trailer apart, removed the brake system completely and welded the tounge solid so we have 0 issues with backing this deal up. And simple is always better. Full paint Job and new bunks and carpet, wheel bearings, lights, wiring, and tires of course. My bad this was the only pic I took of the trailer but it turned out sick for a home job

    Finally got the boat back from GS Marine yesterday. We went with medium pearl in the Orange and Gray and a Heavy Flake in the Silver, Cockpit is also Silver. This thing tured out great, Greg was nervous about the flake but it turned out sick. Pics don't do it justice. Keep in mind they filled like 20 holes and body work and prep is awesome.

    They did an awesome job and a real fair price too!

    All the deck hardware came with it so using it for now. I powdercoated everything gloss black. New Auto Meter Guages with Black Bezels from Eddie Marine. Might do flush cleats later but rather get it running first

    Nice project Corry. I may have missed it but is this paint or did they do a gel job? Either way it's going to be sweet!
