Author Topic:   Hull Restoration

I have a 1981 Newport hull. I am going to begin restoration of it, but have a few questions. The hull had a hole in the starboard side above the waterline, and the boat had been in the water for some time. I have had the hole fixed and it looks pretty good. However, when I look down both sides, I can see wavy lines. What is this indicative of. There was also a bunch of extra holes in the deck where stuff (who knows what) was mounted, I have filled some of them, but I am now wondering if the foam is wet inside.

The boat has been out of the water on a trailer for about 2 years now, so if it was wet, would it have dried out?

Lastly, the inside of the boat has been painted with what looks like marine enamel at some point. The nonskid on the deck is not very non-skid anymore. Some of the non-skid on the side decks has been supplemented with painted on nonskid. Should I even bother trying to recover the original non-skid, or try some other approach?

I was pondering on getting rid of this boat, and looking for an 18 outrage that is less work, but I love a good project, and this boat will suit my needs fine.
