This project has now been launched and the engine fitted. The owners are very happy with the result, and can now get the boat working!
Following on from a previous post on this project, this net boat had a full internal hull rebuild including a hull extension with engine pod, new cabin and raised gunnels. Its now been completed and includes a built-in recessed battery box in front of the engine. The raising of the gunnel height was decided when […]
Work boats take on a different role in boating, this is not a play thing but a means to make a living. This net boat had been lying derelict for some time but the solid glass hull was still sound so the owners asked for a full hull rebuild with new stringers, bulkheads and floor. […]
This is another update of this large remodel/restoration project, which the owner now informs us is a Hamilton brand (as in the Hamilton jet company). Being such a large and ongoing job we have had 2 previous update posts on this project which you may remember. It is now getting close to the finishing stages […]
You may remember this project we have in our shop at the moment which we had in an April post. This is an unbranded 18 foot FRP hull which we are restoring and remodeling to suit the owners requests. It was fitted with an inboard diesel engine with a moulded prop tunnel recessed into the […]
We are currently working on re-modelling and refurbishing this unbranded 18ft half cabin that is a family favourite. Being of the vintage of when the hulls were built pretty solid, this oldie has good bones and the owner tells us that she is a great sea boat. So rather than scrap it the owners want […]
We did a cad designed concept for this customer to visualize the end result. All mod’s were done in epoxy for high strength and custom flexibilty. This boat needed a new transom firstly and then the new engine pod was integrated into the hull and hull stringers. The wet-well was cut away and a custom […]
This Haines almost lost its engine the transom was so bad. The engine was of a large size so the new job needed to be very strong. Using epoxy again this guaranteed a stronger transom than original. We also had to replace part of one of the hull stringers.
