gelcoat will only cure if no oxygen is present.
thus when molded.



pool coat will cure when a catalyst is added.

basically the same thing.


dit kom mooi aan.

Soos Willem Wikkel Speis sĂȘ, jy is amper daar! Baie min bote op die site wat begin het, het nie klaar gemaak nie! Jy kan trots wees op die produk sover! As ek weer 'n interceptor koop sal dit joune wees, maar sal net die 300kg subs en amps uithaal dat die boot kan plane hehe!
Dis erger as om sepies soos Binelanders te kyk! Hou ons op hoogte, die winter is op ons.

Ja ons kom daar, Timmy sit regtig moerse ure in, eks baie happy met wat hy doen, ek dink dis die reward wat hom motivated hou want ek sal al gatvol wees by nou.

HAHA ja ja, my sound is slightly overkill maar man ek het a deal en a half gekry met dit.

Ek sien regtig uit vir wanneer ons by die finishing kom want dan gaan die prentjie regtig begin bymekaar kom.

DAY 29

Unfortunately slow progress this work due to a crappy shift but little progress non the less.

Timmy placed the motor well back to where it will be fitted and noted that although the fit was still good that it was actually a bit skew and leaning towards the one side so that will be fixed up once it goes back.

Also work on the sliding doors have started with the addition of the first wood piece that will house part of the frame work as well as the sliding tracks.

Sorry for the lack of updates but due to bad work shifts, the site being off line, Timmy being sick and me going on a holiday, the updates stood still.

I have done the following days in a reply for each day:

DAY 30

So last week was the last update and work got in the way unfortunately.

To carry on, after the motor well was leveled it was slowly being attached back into place.

Timmy started with attaching it on parts of the outside as well as parts of the inside in the corners:







After those cured all the spots were attached and then sanded down:




With the swim platform, the plan was to take the one platform which accommodates a swim ladder, which I dont have and dont use, and to fill it up to be flat like the other one.

In stead of doing that he made a mold for the existing flattened one. As a trial it came out really good with it still having small little marks on the inside which will still be fixed up before we actually cast one.

He wanted to have these available for his own boat and possibly produce them for anyone else interested as the swim platforms that are available are not as deep as these ones and to buy these ones from a dealer is really expensive, so watch this space and if anyone should be interested let me know, I will have a detailed description as well as pictures of it once we go ahead.

Here are the generic ones that are floating around:



These ones I think are made by angler boats to go on the Panache series:

DAY 31

Second layer of matting going on and then sanded down. The blasting we had done on the splash well to get the blue stuff off made is very rough so a second layer was added for extra strength.











The original inspection cover lid we wanted to use over the tank pickup did not quite fit unless it was lifted up somewhat, Timmy made a mold from the original lid and covered it with fiberglass, it still seals just as well and now sits flush over the pickup.

DAY 32

Only 2 pictures in this one although quite a lot was done today.

So now it's just sanding till everything is flat from what can be seen. After this the whole splash well will be sprayed like the floor to check for any imperfections.

Its amazing how much attention to detail Timmy applies, even though this whole area will be sprayed with a non slip grid, he still wants it to be 100% smooth and perfect before adding a rough layer onto it.

Next update will be on Monday as work shifts this weekend wont allow much progress on the boat.

After most of the sanding and flattening was done the whole splash well was sprayed to check for any major defects, besides the expected nicks and dings here and there is came out pretty well.

Progress is stil slow but picking up now again.

DAY 34

Work continues on the surface of the splash well, after the painting it is now being faired to flatten everything and get it 100% smooth.

Lots of sanding is involved and that is where the progress is now, its a bit difficult to justify all that with pictures but here are some of the current progress.

More sanding of what was faired yesterday, took quite a bit of time as finishing is the most important part.

After that the surface was primed to check for any final defects that needed and work.

DAY 36 and 37

On Monday I finally had the chance to visit the boat for the first time over 2 months after the work has started and everything done so far looks really really good.

The planning and workmanship is done with exceptional detail and I realized that the pictures that I have been getting doesnt do it any justice.

It took almost an hour for the both of us to do a walk around of everything that was going to happen from here on as there is much more detail involved.

The transom and splash well surfaces were body filled and faired again after the primer and sanded to a surface thats so smooth it almost feels like its been painted.

These are the first 3 pictures that I took myself:





The tracks for the sliding doors have also been cut to size and checked for leveling.

DAY 38

What we also discussed during my visit there was the color, which was mainly between the seafoam green and the silver, what made the choice really hard was what shade of the seafoam green to go with to not have it to much and to bright, but at the same time not to light.

So the color we went with was the one marked in the picture below, this will be applied on the side of the boat as well as in the non skid on the deck.

The silver is quite grainy as I wanted quite a sparkle or glitter to it, light enough so that it will have that effect but not to dark that it comes across as black from a distance. The grey will be covering most of the name on the side as well as the stripes behind the back window as well as the boot strap lines on the side of the boat.



We did a test spray today and it came out really bright, I obviousley didn't think it would shine this much when being applied on a larger surface.

So we are not at the spray side of things yet, I would like to see the different shades of this color in a lighter version as well so we will look at that in due time.






The doors are also nearing completion, I though the idea behind this was quite good, the middle door is fixed and removable with the 2 side doors sliding on the same track.

The middle door will get a coat of non skid in seafoam green, the 2 side doors will have the same seafoam green back color with the face of the door covered with the eva teak.

DAY 39

Transom and splash well got a wash today and finished off by a spray job, as mentioned, this whole area will be covered by non skid grid in seafoam green.

The purpose of the spray was for Timmy to view his progress and finish the job off neatly.

On one of the pics the seafoam green looks a lot more view able as the shine lightens up the whole side of the boat, its slowly growing on me.

Slowly but surely getting there now, so thats 2 of the 5 major jobs in this project complete, pics below:

DAY 40

The 3 wood panels for the sliding doors below the splash well were all coated with resin with the center panel, which will be fixed yet still removable, got its coat of non skid.

So the non skid was applied with the panel being sprayed with flow coat in seafoam green, after that sugar was ''sand blasted'' onto that wet flow coat, after everything was dry, the sugar was washed off with water and the non skid surface came out just perfect.



Flow coat being sprayed on:



Suger blasted onto that:




Finished product with the suger washed off:

DAY 41

Boat is off the trailer, with some careful planning and time and quite a bit of effort, it finally came off.

Next we move on to the trailer, quite a couple of changes and mods that needs to be done as well as all the stripping before its finally off for sandblasting and then galvanizing.

DAY 42

All right, off week for Timmy from work this week so pretty sure progress should be good.

So before we do anything more to the boat, first thing is to get the trailer mods done and then stripped. After that the trailor will go for sandblasting and finally galvanizing.

We are looking to have the trailer ready for sandblasting by Wednesday or Thursday.

Objective is to get the trailer back asap as its not ideal to have the boat being supported by what is holding it at the moment.

Once the trailer is out of the yard the bottom of the boat will be fixed up first and painted, so aim is to get the whole bottom done and finished by the time the trailor comes back.

Few pics below:

What i was told is a galvanized trailer was obviously not completely done

Mounting steps are bent and placed and the fit looks good.

The resting bunks have also been replaced and bolted to check the fit.

Not the best pics but sanding and filling on the bottom of the hull is now being done, this is probably the spot on the boat that has the most fixing up as far as the hull is concerned, it really isn't much but there are a few marks that need to be prepared.

DAY 45

We are behind schedule as we wanted to send the trailer for sandblasting today but as always, unplanned events and time gets in the way.

So the steps are all welded in, all that needs to happen on the trailer from here is the steps that need to be added in the front and then the stripping.

On the boat side, bottom is done and faired up and a primer is applied to where anything was done, will be the same process here as we did with the transom and the floor, this will be sprayed in a color to check for any marks or so and fixed up before we move on from there.
