This Clacka needed a major restoration and a lot of repairs. The entire exterior needed to be sandblasted to remove this rough finish that was flaking off in spots, had runs in spots and was very rough to the touch.
After it was sandblasted it was sanded smooth, all the chips, dings and major cracks and holes were repaired then it was primed and resprayed.
The inside was in rough shape as well. This also had to be sandblasted to remove the old material. Some De-lamination was going on in several spots. This was also repaired.
Once the inside was cleaned up and repaired it was resprayed. The Rod holders were also cleaned up and glassed in. A new Rowers seat was installed and the "A" parts were repaired and resprayed to match the exterior
This boat did not fit the trailer correctly. The fenders were actually crushing the boat and we did have to repair the huge cracks this caused in the boat.
Now the boat fits on the trailer. It is no longer being crushed and getting scratched from being forced onto the trailer.
After some careful measurements and a lot of patients some carpeted raised bunks were installed on the trailer so the boat fit without rubbing the fenders.
One last look at this boat before it got a major makeover.
And here it is. Done and ready to go.
This Client wanted the Chines and Bottoms repaired. We also had to repair the front knee lock, install new seats, Buff and Wax the exterior and interior A parts.
We had to do some repair work on the Chines and Bottom especially where the boat was sitting on the rollers from the trailer.
The Bottom and Chines Repaired and Resprayed. The exterior has also been Buffed and Waxed. This brought back the shine in the gelcoat and got rid of the oxidation.
The Front Knee lock had some pretty significant damage and was in need of repair. We also replaced all the trimlock on the boat.
The Front Knee Lock has been fixed. We resprayed the Front and Rear Knee Lock with gelcoat.
The old Rowers Seat was a very uncomfortable metal seat. Ouch imangine sitting on that all day.
The old seat was removed and replaced with a much more user friendly one.
The old seats needed an upgrade.

Meet The Tub. This boat was in need of some serious restoration and repair. Cup holders, new anchor, anchor system,rope, Trim Lock, front leaner bar, new gel coat inside and out, new oar locks and blocks.
The bottom, chines and sides had some pretty major damage and needed repaired and the Client wanted a new color gel coat inside and out.
After fixing all the damage, we also reinforced the rolled edges because a critical failure was about to happen. They were cracked and about ready to break completely. We gave this boat a new gel coat respray and brought life back to it.
The seats needed replaced. They were also cracked and in need of repair.
All fixed up. Cracks repaired, cup holders installed and trim lock. Also you can see the Dierks hand release side pull anchor system
We made a new Rod holder for the clients this made them quite happy!
New oar locks were needed. The rolled edges were about to break so they needed reinforced as well
Nice new oar locks, blocks and Trim Lock. you can also see the Dierks hand release side pull anchor system
This was actually built up around the drain hole. This was sanded out and redone as well.
Now that this was done water would actually be able to drain out. Also you can see the new gel coat and webbing inside.
Here you can see the new anchor system that we installed. This is a Dierks hand release side pull. The new anchor for it is a Green Anchor.
Leaner bar installed and ready to go. This can be adjusted to the client so its a perfect fit.
Presenting The Tub. Our Client was very happy with the results and as you can see Stich and DJ approve
This boat got completely new Gel Coat inside and out. It was cut down to make it more manageable on the water. Dry storage hatches were put in the front and back. The seats were redone and a front knee lock and a new anchor system was installed. The Trailer has a new axle,hubs,taillights,wiring winch,bow stops,coupler,safety chains,bunks and carpet.
This boat came to us from Boise Idaho. It was on its way to the dump. The original owner saved it and contacted us to see if it could be given one last chance.
The entire Bottom and Chines were covered with a plastic shield that had trapped moisture and did some major damage.
As you can see this is NOT looking good.
Yep the Chines are destroyed
This is a look at the Bottom and Chines once the shield was taken off
This poor boat needed some serious help.
After a lot of sanding and repairing, we covered the bottom with fiberglass and a new coat of gelcoat. The exterior was also sanded and resprayed.
Oh I wonder what joys await us under this carpet
Yep wood rot and Mold!
In the back we have a rubberized coating that is cracked and trapping moisture.
This is what it looked like under the rubberized coating.
After a lot of sanding and repairs the floor was saved. We also sanded and resprayed the interior.
We also made a new rear seat to replace the carpet covered plywood that was serving as a rear seat.
A new deck was built for the Rower as well as front and rear decks.
This boat is ready to go on its trailer and go home. Along with a new set of Sawyer oars , new anchor rope and an extreme makeover!
