The transformation is complete, this Hamilton half cabin project has been one of our largest and ongoing projects. You may have seen the previous posts with updates along the way showing the progress. This post covers the final finishing and installing of the ‘bling’! At the last moment the owners chose to go with Eva foam decking panels which has stepped the finish up a couple notches with a plush production look. The work undertaken from our previous post was final painting of the hull topsides and superstructure, flowcoating inside cabin, back deck and inside all lockers and bilges. All fittings had already been pre-fitted so it was a case of final install of these items which included windscreen panels, deck gear, solar panel, locker doors/lids, bi-fold cabin entrance door, glovebox, stereo, speakers, spin-outs, drains, duckboard ladder, bowrails, handrails, seat bases, gunnel rubber & caps, fuel tank & hoses and bilge pump with outlet. The templating and fitting of the Eva decking was a lot more work and cost than painted nonslip but was well worth it we think, and the owners agree. To look back at what this boat looked like when it was delivered, you wouldn’t believe it was the same boat!

The owners are now waiting patiently for their new engine which is due in sometime in May. When this is fitted at Impact Marine, Nick will be installing all electrical components before some long-awaited sea trials!
Its always nice to have happy customers and the owners had a few nice words to say about their new boat:
Hi Craig, arrived home safe with our new toy! Just like to say a big thank you for all your input into this venture. If the boat performs as good as it looks, it will be magnificent! Can’t wait to catch up at the launch. Once again thanks for all your help! ps: I can’t get over the amazing workmanship, you should be so proud.
