I asked that and he said no. It's water tight. The wrap over laps a 1/2 in and gets fused. Kinda like plastic welding. It's a trip. He did a couple different joints on my deck to show me how it works and then I poured water on it and completely dry.

I built a basic 4"x 4" stand to catch the stringers in the rear and a sandwich of 2"x 12" blocks along with the old seat cushions for the bow area.  This combo sat the hull about 1" from the ground so I could sand/work at a good height.  The tires were a much needed part to the rotation, if you plan to ever flip a boat this big make sure you have a bunch of tires!


ok, you had the 4x4 stand supporting stringers....and the 2x12 resting against surface of deck??

im not even sure if i need to flip my hull....but now is best time as there is nothing in it aside from tanks.

Finished sanding my boat for paint. Then I was driving down the road to get food and seen a new shop that said vinyl wraps, cars trucks and boats so I stopped in to check it out and to wrap my 19ft Hallett bubble deck for as many colors and designs I want for only $650. I'm dropping it off Thursday morning and pick it up Monday. Oh and the best part it comes with a two year warranty for any thing, lifting, scratches bubbles even if I go to fast and it peels off. Covered for two years.

common problem is fading.  if they cover fading....youre good to go....at least for two years.

Just think every 6 months new color.  Sheriff boats won't know what's going on.  "Is that the same boat. Nope its a different color. "   Sounds like good a good plan to me.

You know I was just looking up the vinyl material they use to wrap boats. I might buy a few rolls and do it on the side. The material is hella cheap. I can buy enough rolls of  vinyl in any color you can think of to wrap twenty 19ft boats for just about a grand. WTF now I feel like I just got F****d. Lol.

Not to shoot your idea down (just giving an honest opinion), but if he doesn't cover fading on the wrap then I wouldn't do it. Had a buddy wrap his boat and it looked like shit after a one summer season.

I would personally save up to have the boat painted or a gel coat job

The warranty covers fading. Maybe your buddy didn't have the new 3m craps that's out now. But like I said for $650 bucks I don't give two shits if it only last one summer. It's something different. I already have all the paint and primer to paint it. You looking for paint?? Lol. Jk.

Like I said just giving an opinion. Yes he did use the best product out there on his DCB. He wouldn't go the cheap route on that kind of boat.

And no I don't need paint, my boats in perfectly great shape as it is haha thanks tho

Well I guess if you can afford to buy a DCB you can get the good shit. What color did he wrap his boat with. The two colors I am using are light colors.

Started digging into the wiring to figure out why my gauges aren't working. Now I can see why I've always avoided it. 
Somebody ran out of zip ties and wrapped the wires with electrical tape. Over and over and overů  :bang head:
I've seen worse, but, It'd be nice if I could trace the wire without it being spliced to a different color under 10 layers of tape.
