Quick update......James Rankin and Mike Buschman have been busting their ass. They got the boat flipped over and fixed some troubled areas including the cracked strakes.....the hit it with some filler primer then shot it with polyurethane single stage white and then clear. They are going to let it bake in the sun today then it will be ready to be flipped over and start on replacing the stringers and prepping the top for paint.

The trailer is over at e-blast dustless sandblasting in Menifee, CA....trailer has been blasted, they gotta weld up a few cracks, then they are going to primer it today.

Yes, get aluminum. I don't ever see poly tanks in any of these boats.... probably a reason why everyone runs aluminum

I have heard of good success on aluminum tanks with POR15 (https://www.por15.com/POR-15-Fuel-Tank-Sealer).....but if you want all your  worries to go away, have another set of tanks made. IMCO can make you new tanks. I had a set made about 10 years ago and it was in the $800 range.

One of the biggest setbacks was that when we purchased this boat back in June, it had carpeted stringers and the rear 1/4 was boxed in with aluminum angle rails. Once we removed these boxed in rails and the carpet underneith it, we discovered that the stringers were broken straight through to the floor and also split down the length of the boat where the front motor mounts were. Initially we were going to scrap this boat and start over once we discovered this, but James Rankin volenteered to replace the stringers. The boat will be going to him next week to bang out this job on an emergency basis as we are very limited on time.

This is the raffle boat build thread for the Horsepower Fest 2019 Grand Prize!

Horsepower Fest 2019 is benefiting the Semper Fi Fund, a program that helps wounded veterans of all branches of the US Military that have been wounded in post 9/11 battles. Last year Horsepower Fest raised and donated $10,000 to the Semper Fi Fund.

This is a 1979 Bahner Flat Deck. It was purchased as a complete boat minus motor. It will be completely restored from the ground up and by the time this boat is complete, it will be a brand new boat inside and out including the following:

Did you reinforce from the inside, or were the strips all applied from the outside of the hull?

The inside was already fiber glassed all the way around from the factory.

I've burned up all my talent. It's good but not perfect. I can keep filling, sanding, and smoothing for days on this, but it's as close as I'll get it for now because we're running out of time. The boat is headed to California in the morning to get new stringers and then paint. 39 days to go until HPF.

Filled and shaped. Now just need to go fill the little holes and patch some minor blemishes...like the one right on that corner.

I'm not painting the boat myself. Mike and James at Kahos Kolors is painting it. It will have a red, white and blue patriotic paint scheme.

Are you planning on installing a rub rail?


Sent from my iPhone using SoCal Jet Boats
No, that's the point of a cap job. It eliminates the seam covered up by the rub rail.

Thanks guys.... starting to take shape slowly

Final filling and smoothed. I will hand sand the rest down after this cures.

Grinded and sanded the top and bottom edges to start the shape of the cap. Now I just need to fill it smooth. I will just use the silica thickener with resin to make a putty like material that's easy to spread and shape before it hardens

67
Once the filler cured I gave it a rough sanding...I can see the low spots that need to be filled in

After the several layers of cloth were laid down down.....I went in and filled it with a mix of 1/4" chopped glass, polyurethane resin, and silica thickener. Once this cures I'll sand it down then go back with more filler to smooth it out.

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Attempting my first cap job...
« on: September 25, 2019, 08:29:58 PM »
I'm starting at the transom since it seems to be the easiest spot to fill. I got a roll of 1" cloth and using polyester resin. I've got about 4 layers of 1" strips. Then I got some silica thickener to mix with the resin to make a paste to fill the rest.

Any constructive feedback is welcome.

This is the boat we are raffling off at horsepower fest. It's a 78 Bahner. (Build thread coming soon)

Brad, are the Sept. 28th and Oct. 5th dates still good? Trying to make a plan to attend....

Yes, those dates are still a go, but to clarify those aren't related to Horsepower Fest.
