Remodeled Old Boat

We ended up with my father-in-law’s old 1984 Blue Fin aluminum boat, and it ended up being quite the challenge!
As soon as we got it, we cleaned up the inside, added new carpet, seat covers, repainted the outside, added a new Bimini top and put a bigger engine on it.

We have really enjoyed this boat, in both the lakes and the ocean.
Last year we noticed that the floor in the back of the boat was getting very soft and we were afraid that it was becoming a safety hazard so we resigned ourselves to the fact that we have to replace the whole floor.
Little did I know that since we had to replace the floor, The Capt. wanted to do some remodeling of the whole inside to make it more modern.

Here are the before pictures:

Here it is stripped down:

I ordered the new seats on EBay and we got the little fiberglass console online.

We didn’t want to go through this again, so we bought this special flooring that will never rot!

It is starting to come together.

The Capt. worked on this boat evenings and almost every weekend for months and he finally finished, just in time for all of our summer company.

He did an awesome job, but now he wants an even bigger engine!
