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:

Freshly rebuilt pump by Place Diverter and Controls including droop, ride plate, and a hydraulic Place Diverter
Brand new Stringers installed by James Rankin
Freshly done Cap Job (Capping thread here: http://www.socaljetboats.com/index.php?topic=31869.0)
Brand new paint job by Khaos Kustom Paints (Mike Buschman and James Rankin) using donated Tamco Paint materials
Brand new Interior - two fiberglass buckets and a fiberglass bench

Battery donated by Battery Connection Inc
Restored trailer done by EBlast Dustless Sandblasting

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.

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.

What kind of paint are you using?  Iíve been trying to find someone to paint my boat, but Iím not sure if automotive paint is ok or not.. the boat certainly doesnít sit in the water for more that an over night if even that long...  pretty much no one around me wants to shoot it with regular paint.

It's been a very long process to get to this point but the paint is finally done! We had some technical issues with some of the paints, but Khaos Kustom Paints (Mike Buschman and James Rankin) finally got her done late last night.

Big thanks to Tamco Paints for donating the materials and thank you to the following people who jumped in and helped out for the past few days...and thank you to their spouses/families for being understanding as we hammered through some very long nights.

James Rankin
Mike Buschman
Kelly Buschman
Brian Couey
Painter Dave
Joe Balakoski

Also thank you to Gary Lewis Electric for letting us use his paint booth!

We're super excited to have everyone come together next weekend to help us find this boat a new home!

Information about the raffle can be found here:

What did you paint the stringers with or is that just a stain?

I am still in possession of the boat. I have been in regular contact with Tom who won the boat. He's not in a rush to get it due to it being winter.

I worked on it a few weekends ago. Finished up all the wiring under the dash, fixed an issue with the hydraulic pump wiring, ran all the fuel lines, and re-installed the headers with gaskets.

I just need to finish running the water lines and put some oil in it, then take it out and give it a shake down so all is good when I hand the keys over to Tom, which should be within the next few weeks once I find some time.
