Boat Build

Super bored at work today... So I'll show everyone what has been consuming my free time.

Bought a boat a few weeks ago that was pretty well destroyed, had a decent hull, good motor, and a nice ass trailer, so I snatched it all up for dirt ass cheap.

1989 Arriva 2050, these were made by Bayliner, its supposed to be the "Premium" line... While this one is an 89, the mid 90's Bayliners used the same hull design as these.

When I got the boat, the back seats were cut out, 90% of the plywood was rotted to shit, and the vinyl was pretty much worthless. After some research I found that it had sat outside for about 10 years, being neglected.

My current struggle is the title and registration, as you can see I live in Iowa, but the boat has Florida tags on it. I'm working through bonding the title, but its just a pain in the ass...

Anyway, onto the boat porn.

This was the day I pulled her home:



Her life sitting outside is now over, she will be cared for as a boat should:



Here is the damage...





Diamond in the rough, a perfect running 3.0 Mercruiser:



The whole floor was weak and squishy, so it all came up.





Also took all the seats apart, dried them out and got them ready to be re-covered:





I saved the vinyl in case we want the patterns someday.

Next was rebuilding the floor and back seats:





Also rebuilt the engine cover/sun deck at this time:



Did a real basic wrap on the seats, here is a couple with the seat framed in:



Previous owner called me to let me know he had the ski hatch, so I put that back in:



Various rebuilding pics, I didn't take any pics after I glassed the floor in, wasn't much to see...



At this point I decided to take off the side panels, and try my hand at vinyl for those as well. Also redesigned them into a more basic piece...







Time for carpet now.



Alright now here is everything back in and finished up. Really happy with the outcome:







Still a handful of things to be done, new blower, new bilge pump, but I'm getting really close to getting her wet.

Shined up and ready for the water:

Quick update, got the registration finally, so we are legal. Got the captains chairs installed, we are taking her out tonight for a quick test run. I was hoping I could hold off on an oil change until the end of the season, but when I checked the stick I could feel the grime in the oil... Had to be changed. So I changed the oil, oil filter, and fuel filter, as well as the outdrive lube. Should be in good shape there. I'll take some pics and video tonight for this thread.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
