Before and After Photos - Show Us!

I'd like to start a new thread to showcase your "before" and "after" photos. Your personal motivation can be to show off, educate, or amaze. I love these kinds of photos, particularly when I need a little inspiration myself. Let's see em ... it can be an entire boat or a specific part or improvement.

I will start with Tiger Lily ... four years into her never ending re-fit.

Re: Before and After Photos - Show Us!

Osmosis bottom job on my contessa 26

Before(sort of);


During;


and


After;


A lot of work, glad I did it. It's only been a couple of seasons since I did the work but so far the moisture meter readings look good. The hull it's self didn't have a serious osmosis problem but approx 15 years ago an epoxy barrier coat was added without removing the gelcoat. I was getting a fair bit of blisters between the two layers and wanted to clean things up.

Re: Before and After Photos - Show Us!

This probably isn't fair, as my boat has needed lots of small projects...
Prior owners idea of a traveler...
