My slow rebuild of my 24' 1988 flote bote

#1 Post by 05HD60 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 8:44 am

After building many cars,trucks and motor cycles the family decided they wanted a boat especially after my dad got a center console boat for his place. After much looking we came to the conclusion that a regular boat was a little tight quarters and started looking at pontoon boats for ideas of what we wanted. While strolling through Craig's list i came across the boat i have for a good price with the main things i wanted was something such as being mechanically sound but needing some cosmetic work cause we could never find exactly what layout we wanted new or used. The plan is new carpet,fence skin, and funiture for sure but haven't decided on what to do about the toons as they have some kind of coating on them and its peeling in spots. Ill post as i update and feel free to make comments or suggestions.

Looks like someone painted or truck bed liner'd the toons. That will be a pain. You may be best to get off what you can and go back over it with another coating.

Looking forward to your build

Yea plan B is to do a black bed liner over them.

Well ive been slowly stripping it down to get the floor ready for replacment, i think im going to do carpet in the back section sat from the steering controls back and the front will be vinyl for easy cleanup and better where, anybody have a good price source for getting the flooring im thinking of doing it in the luxury carpet and maybe the natural wood looking teak. Ive found a few members on here that have given me ideas to work with. I also think im going to do a tan/beige color seats that way it will match any color i decide to do the fence. Ill post up pics soon so everyone can see where im at so far and for ideas/comments/.
