1975 Holmes Horizon
« on: February 13, 2015, 04:38:18 pm »
Hey guys first post on the forum. I just picked up this 19ft Horizon and am pretty excited about it. It seems really unique, I can only find one other online. It's got a 460 Ford with a Berkeley 12JE pump. Got a really good deal on it because the previous owner thought the pump needed rebuilding. It turns out it just needed a wear ring and impeller due to a good sized rock seized in the impeller. Cleaned up the motor and replaced a few other things here and there. It looks like she's pretty much good to go now. I'm going to run it for the season then get ready to cry when I have it re-gelled. It's been painted with automotive paint and is definitely due for a freshening up. What's everyone think?

I'll take a few in the morning. Yeah the only thing I see as a downside right now as far as the center steering goes is I can't reach the dock from the center of the boat.

Yeah I'd say I got a good deal. This is the only other one that I can find online.

So I had it out in Needles in March and had a great time but blew the motor up on the last day.

I just finished rebuilding the motor and my buddy and I decided to just do a full resto while it was out.

Tore out the floor and electric. About to start sanding...

Very clean boat, would love to see the finished product. What kind of paint are you using on it?

So far we sprayed a base coat of white gel coat then used a marine grade primer.

Are you gonna put a few more coats of the base or do you have a different paint to put on top of it.

I'm still going back and forth on colors so I haven't purchased anything yet. As of now it's looking like it's going to be a similar paint scheme to this but in white with blue stripes and orange pinstripes.

So as far as white paint goes you're done with it?

No that color in that picture is actually a light grey primer.

Ohhhh I see now, sorry. Have you found the brand of paint you will use, or do you have a preferred brand of paint? The reason I ask is because I'm repainting mine and I don't want to use the brand I used last time.
