21 Sea Pro "IronMan"
A marines father called us up from California and asked if we would be interested in overhauling his sons boat while he is deployed over seas. The boat is named after his brother's nick name, "Ironman", who was killed in action in Afghanistan. We are honored to have this opportunity for this family. The boat got an Awl-Grip Super Jet Black paint job, S.S. rub-rail, S.S. cup holders, S.S. rod holders, Fusion Stereo with iPhone dock and blu-tooth adaptor, JL 2-way speakers, custom made casting platform with Aqua-traction, new wind shield, remote micro battery switch, and a full interior wet-sanding, compounding and polishing. We were able to have the name custom cut from 316 Stainless Steel. Had a decal made from a picture of both the brothers hugging it out one last time. We were happy to be able to give back to a family that has given so much. Welcome to the family!
55' Core Sound "Game Keeper"
We used Awl-Grip's Ultimate Bright Work technique to restore this old Scopinich chair. This varnish system requires 10 coats of Awl-Spar and 12 coats of Awl-Brite. We stripped the seat base to bare teak, coated it with 5 coats of west system epoxy then used Awl-Grip's epoxy primers and Topcoat to finish her out. We had the arms re-upholstered and we polished out all of the metal before we re-assembled her. The fighting chair is the business end of this charter boat and we are happy to restore this "money maker" to a better than new condition. We wish the "GameKeeper" good luck in this years tournaments and charters.
1974 Boston Whaler 13' CC
Its hard to not to love these little boats since so many of us learned how to drive them at a young age. This one will be getting a complete overhaul from the keel to the wheel. When she is done, she will be ready for generations to come. We built the seats out of coosa and glassed them so they are one fused piece. The bench seats were rasied for comfort. We lit the underside of the seats with white LED lighting. We had never seen a center console 13' Whaler before, and decided to go that route for better balance. Kept the designs in line with the classic Whaler look. This rig has all new Whaler hardware thanks to Specialty Marine. The bow hatch was also made from coosa and hand glassed with the console and seats. We installed a SS Vetus throttle, Schmitt 13" wheel, a Faria tachometer, blue seas fuse block, horn, 4 rocker switches, a Yamaha key switch, trim switch near hand position, and 2 stainless steel fold down cup holders into this tiny center console. The bow rails are also stainless and will not rattle. This 13 Whaler is truly a one of a kind. We kindly refer to it as the "CEO Escape Pod".
