At JD’s Boatshed we not only specialize in sales and service, but we also often carry out projects such as bringing a worn-down boat back up to looking new and performing to its best ability.
The Bayliner project is a task we have recently completed by transforming this bowrider inside and out to its former glory.
We started off with completing a major engine and sterndrive service to ensure it will run smoothly, we then fit a bellows assembly to the transom housing, this is a flexible gasket that protects your boats internal drive system and cables.
Our team lifted out the engine to strip the wiring loom and all accessories back to a short block, rust was treated, primed and painted in phantom black.
We then replaced the side plate, sump, manifold and any other damaged and worn-out parts.
Moving on, our team began to sand the deck and buff to a high gloss finish, we then replaced all press studs and polished all stainless fittings.
Followed by the Hull we removed all decals and stripes, acid washed the hull and transom, buffed all white gelcoat to high gloss then we had the hull vinyl wrapped in blue, re-striped and fitted new registration letters, at this stage of the project we could see a huge transformation starting to take shape!
During the next stage of the assignment, we went through the entire electrical system to ensure all options were 100% on the boat.
Electrical repairs included installing a new fusion stereo, speakers, anchor light, bilge pump and a bilge blower.
After stripping out the entire interior and sending it off for re-trimming we scrubbed and cleaned the entire boat.
We installed new seats and side panels in white and navy marine vinyl, we replaced the carpet, cockpit lining and not to forget buffed all the interior fiberglass and dash panels to match the hull and deck shine!
Finally, to finish off as always, we carried out a water test to ensure 100% operation of the work carried out and that the engine is running well.
