The before photo of the 31-foot Contender that the crew at Marine Customs Unlimited is remodeling. In this episode, the team remodels the dash panel, rigs new Yamaha Outboard engines and installs beautiful black TACO Rub Rail with a stainless-steel insert.
Now that the hull is painted, the 31-foot Contender is ready for brand new TACO Rub Rail.
The Contender got brand new black TACO Rub Rail with a stainless-steel insert.
Using every day tools, the crew at MCU easily installs the new TACO Rub Rail with a stainless-steel insert.
The new TACO Rub Rail beautifully finishes the hull of the 31-foot Contender.
Here's an exclusive clip with the 31-foot Contender.
We also jump back in the warehouse with the 21-foot Paramount, which needed a complete overhaul from the inside out, including replacing the stringers, installing a new transom, replacing the boat cap and now painting the bottom. Before they can paint the bottom, the team at MCU needs to do some fiberglass work to the bottom of the hull – smoothing out any trouble areas that may diminish the boat's on-the-water performance and give it a perfect running surface.
The team at MCU needs to do some fiberglass work to the bottom of the 21-foot Paramount before it can be painted.
The bottom of the 21-foot Paramount has a lot of uneven surface that needs to be smoothed out.
To smooth out the hull, a straight edge is placed along the bottom to determine the high and low areas. Any low areas are marked and sanded down. Once the low sections are prepped for new fiberglass, the bottom outlines are traced on paper – providing the pattern from which to cut new fiberglass.
Using a straight edge, the team at MCU locates all the areas that need to be smoothed before the bottom can be painted.
Once the low areas are sanded down, fiberglass pieces are soaked in resin and then applied to the bottom of the boat.
Large areas of the 21-foot Paramount bottom needed to be evened out before it could be painted. The fiberglass pieces are soaked in resin before being applied to the boat bottom. Once dry, the new fiberglass areas are sanded smooth and the bottom painted.
The new paint on the 21-foot Paramount looks amazing!
