    Time to update the Comp thread as well while I am at home for once. Stored it outside covered for close to a year. The squirrels were trying to find a new home but did not succeed thankfully. I got her in the garage for a few days when we had lots and lots of rain back in February and began stripping her down a bit. Decided to start with the wet sand, buff and gelcoat after having found a great shop to do my 242. So, off came the striping.
    Miserable work. Blue stripe came off easily, the rest gave me a run for my money. Then I took off the rub rail and started to undress her by removing the back seat and captain's chair along with the side upholstery. Took off any accessory, light or gator step pad that would prohibit a clean renewal on the gelcoat. I had 3 straight days with it and maybe spent 20 - 22 hours of prep time. I didn't completely get all the sticky off before running it to the shop because my fingers were dull and numb but I was close. She was red at some point so we'll have to see just how good she bounces back after all that oxidation.

    SHOP VISIT #1

    Two weeks ago I got to stop by the shop and check in on the Comp. She had just been wet sanded at this point. They hadn't done the underside but will do that when the lift is available. Any gelcoat you visibly see, will be wet sanded, buffed and polished to perfection.

    Swim Platform will be getting repaired at the same time the boat is in the shop. Definitely has been hit in a few places and the gelcoat needs repair.
    I spent several hours taking off the gator step but the sticky did not come off without a fight. Again, miserable work.

    Do you really want to know? Somewhere between not so cheap and expensive.

    Shop Visit #2

    Stopped by again today to check the progress. I'm happy so far with what I could see under the bad lighting conditions. He has polished it up a bit now as he awaits more work before doing final wax. Should be even better when it sees the sunlight. I can see actually see red and white gelcoat and a shine which is complete change from earlier pics. Damn, is it gorgeous in person.

    I'm just gonna say this, I am going over budget quite a bit to restore this boat, but I believe it will be worth it in the long run.
