Episode No. 1 of “Pretty Perfect” – Boat Restoration and Reconstruction of a 29 Ft Cabin Cruiser
This episode is the first of a series about the recostruction and restoration of a 29 foot Bayliner Cabin Cruiser. It covers from the instant we got the boat through the completion of the hull interior surfaces. Many areas were damaged by fresh water causing dry rot and requiring removal, repair and rebuild of hull and internal structural areas. The restoration of this 1983 Contessa will include the redesign of the hull interior, new floors supports, walls and furnishing, with the goal of reducing weight, increasing performance, reliability and reducing operating cost along with the reduction of hydrocarbon emissions thanks to these innovations and use of eco friendy components. Each Episode will cover different aspects of the rebuilding process, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2010.
