Hey All,

Making slow but steady progress. Got the primer and paint on for the stripe. Used as polyurethane primer and acrylic enamel topcoat. Added 7.5% flattener for a semi-semi gloss finish.

Looks like it turning out great, Terry! :woohoo:

Is it possible Mama Mia can look even better?!? ;)

Thanks George,

You know it’s a lot of messin around but I enjoy the work and the payoff is in the results.

But actually, from a distance, she will not really look much different than she did last year in this photo.



But the boat should all be shining real nice with the new chrome and gel coat. I’m also polishing all the aluminum and have new rubrail and window gaskets



Also found a good replacement for the non-skid deck material. Bought it through Defender but the size I needed was special order and the stuff is made in the UK. It’s supposed to be shipping July 1st so I should have it in time. Were closing in real fast on July 11th.

Hey All,

The stripe came out pretty good and a lot of the initial sanding is done and she is shaping up real nice.









I was concerned with the complex shapes around the windshield and hatch opening and being able to get in there to smooth it out and did not sand through. Definitely will have to mix up some gel and fill in a few voids I have found but so far I think she is looking real good.







Were going slow and steady and Mama Mia! will not make it to port at Famous Freddies this weekend so we’re now resetting course for the Midwest All Classics next month.



Thanks,
Terry

Hello All,

Still at it up here in the holler and making progress. Mama Mia is looking fine in her new coat and going back together nicely.







Got her all sanded down and polished pretty and now the rub rail and top is back on and got the glass in.









Still have a few parts to attach and working on the wiring harness so I can put the big Merc back on.







Thanks,
Terry
