I will update this post with some pictures shortly.

My dad and I got this boat from my grandpa on 4/4/2014. It has been in the lake since '98 and ran only a hand full of times. I am 24 years old and this is my first boat. I have rebuilt lots of cars but never a boat so this will be interesting.

As I said the boat sat with no cover, on the water since '98 as far as we know, it was last started 2 years ago. We drove down to Longview Texas from Olathe Kansas last week to pick this up and it was obviously pretty rough. The http://www.pontoonstuff.com/collections/pontoon-boat-carpet-flooring" rel="nofollow - pontoon carpet was just powder that had washed to the back end of the boat, the wood was all rotted, and the furniture was all garbage.

We got down to Longview and got the trailer put back together with fresh tires, new bearings, all new wiring/lighting, and a little dent removal (my grandpa hits all kinds of stuff). Thankfully we were able to clean out the gas tank, replace the fuel line, and throw a new battery on the boat and get it fired up within 30 minutes. I'm pretty sure by this point we only fell through the floor 2-3 times.

Anyway, we got the boat running and had to take it to the other end of the lake to load it up on the trailer. It ran great and made it over there, though while steering the console kind of became separated from the floor lol. We strapped it to the trailer and took it back to Kansas.

Today (4/11/2014) we went and picked the boat up from a friends house that we are storing it at and began taking it apart. Everything pretty much came apart easily, and yeah by "came apart" I mean "fell off".













We ended up getting it all cleaned off though. Going to head to the dump tomorrow to get rid of all of the old wood and furniture. Going to break out the power washer tomorrow too but here is where we left off for the day.

Well we got back after it this morning. Started out cleaning it, got most of the nests off of it and a lot of the buildup on the bottom off with a power washer. It wouldn't take off any of the stains though. My dad and I ran up to bass pro shop and grabbed some toon brite, that stuff took care of all of the stains.

The finish is still uneven so we are going to have to figure out how to get that straightened out, I'm open to any suggestions. I'm not trying to get a mirror finish from it so I don't really want to do a multi stage polishing process.

We got our wood ordered and I got my first big order through pontoon stuff placed, got carpet, furniture, so lighting and other misc stuff. I was surprised at how quick I got up to 1800 bucks though, lol oh well it will be worth it in the end.

Here are some pictures I snapped throughout the day though, we only got to the outside of the logs this weekend, we will do the insides and try to even out the finish next weekend.





Here is a quick before and after, the logs were still a little wet in the "after" photo so it makes the finish look a little more uneven than it really is.



Also decided that since I had the water going I might as well give my other toy it's first bath of the season.


I am really happy with all we got done this weekend, although the neighbors are probably a little less than pleased to see me taking on another project. They've gotten used to the random car and motorcycle builds but this one is probably pushing the buttons of a few HOA members lol

Lucky for us the president lives across the street and is a good friend. He thinks all the stuff we do out of the garage is awesome. It probably helps that we don't actually break any of the rules....we just bend the *inappropriate language not permitted* out of them lol.

We had a pretty uneventful weekend. Turkey season started up so we didnt work at all on Sunday, and Saturday was my girlfriend's grandmother's birthday so we had to stop early to go to that. We are still waiting on the wood to arrive as well as the polish that we ordered up.

 
The polish is set to be here today, so hopefully it is and I can begin to polish it later this week. We just ordered the polish and sharkhide all together, we are only doing 1 stage of polishing. I am already really happy with the way the logs look (not a huge fan of mirror polished anything) but we figured we would go over them once with a polisher and see how they look afterwards.
 
Earlier this week my order from PS came in, I was really happy with the way everything looked, though the boxes were VERY rough (some even opened) upon delivery. We opened everything up to make sure it looked good and as far as I could tell everything was fine.
 
This is everything I ordered, I only took one picture though (the base and the cushions were in the damaged boxes).
 
 
 
 
Saturday before the birthday party we did the insides of the logs with the toonbrite and then once everything dried went over the whole thing again (we used right at 1.5 gallons) Dead We finished up by running it to the car wash down the street from the house to go over it with some soap and water. The finish ended up coming out VERY even I was really happy about it.
 
In the picture it doesn't look even due to water still sitting on the surface of the logs. Once it dried though it looked much better than this.
 
 
We are talking about getting the logs flipped over so we can start polishing from the very bottom then work our way up, also it would give us time to take the trailer somehwere to get it stripped down. I think we are going to Rhino Line the trailer though once we get it all stripped and cleaned up.
 
This weekend we also were able to take the motor off so that I could begin to go through it. I am going to pretty much throw a bunch of new gaskets on it to "freshen" it up, rebuild the carburetor, and put a new impeller in it just to be safe. Not sure what all needs to be done since it has sat for so long but I figure I will find out as I go along.

Hit the logs with some polish this weekend. There are some uneven parts that are overly shiney since my grandpa had tires on the side of it so it didn't rub up against his dock. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out though. I am going to leave it as it is with the exception of adding some Sharkhide Protectant to it. Hopefully that will help with water spots.
 
The wood is scheduled to be here mid week so we will hopefully be able to put it down next weekend. along with adding the sharkhide. I decided that rather than having a friend of mine paint all the siding I am just going to order some new siding from PS and put it on myself. I like the look of the siding on the outside of the rails better, but haven't really made a decision yet.
 
I ended up getting a carb rebuild kit and an impeller kit last thursday so I will be installing those this week along with general cleaning on the engine. I have a feeling the carb is pretty gunked up.
 
I will also probably be shopping for some audio stuff this weekend. A good friend of mine sells car audio and is giving me a great discount. I am just not sure how many speakers I want yet. I want to buy these this week though so that we can set the furnature out on the deck once it is down and figure out where we need to run our wires to.
 
 
Afterwards we fired up the grill, made some steaks and had some drinks around a fire.

Nice job there, I'm in the rebuild stage now and have my project posted here on the forum. I'm about to place a $3000 order with PS and I saw your order had a 10% "Forum Discount" how did you get that, when it talked to the rep at PS they knew nothing about it. My project is titled "87 Crest II Project".
Thanks in advance for your answer

yeah it is helpful for sure. I am about to place another order with them so I can get my nav lights and some other stuff I need. Going to go with the dark blue siding they offer along with the smoke grey decals.
 
Anyway, I got wood this afternoon LOL so the plan is to try and do the shark hide protectant tomorrow and probably get started on the deck. It doesn't look like the shark hide takes too long to apply. Does anyone have any tips on applying it?
 
I didn't get around to rebuilding the carb yet or any of that stuff but hopefully Sunday I will be able to do that. I am just thankful now that we have been lucky with our weather. I work Sunday-Thursday nights so it's nice that Fridays and Saturdays have been pretty decent lately.
 
If the weather holds off I have a 100lb carpet roller rented out so we may get around to applying that, since it is supposed to be really nice Saturday, but we will see how that goes.
 
I will post some pics of whatever we get done with this weekend though. Beer

Watching your progress kinda makes me want to do another one. (I just need a place to hide it from the wife)

The polishing I went super simple with, I didn't want a mirror finish so I skipped all of the stages lots of people seem to go through. I just did two coats of toonbrite with a fine scotchbrite pad on the inside and outside. I ordered the polish from sharkhide and just went down each side with an orbital polisher with medium speed.
 
This weekend we got a decent amount of stuff done though. We got 2 coats of shark hide protectant on the logs, built a new transom, rebuilt the pieces that extend in front of the deck to cover the tip of the logs, and laid all of our carpet out.
 
We started Friday morning since it was pretty cool out and got our first coat of shark hide down along with all of the new wood for the deck.
 
 
I also polished the rear "riser" and still need to do the middle and front as you can see from the picture above.
 
We ended up going with the Midnight Star carpet.
 
 
We rented a 100lb roller from a place down the street from the house and got it all to lay out evenly and then I went over it with a vacuum real quick to get all of the saw dust and whatever else I could off.
 
Then we built new nose pieces and carpeted those as well.
 
Since you have to screw through the bottom of these and cut the end of the screws off we didn't cover the top that is still all brown from the old tape that was on there. We will recover these next weekend with some of that anti-slip tape similar to skateboard deck tape.
 
Another Before & After picture. Pretty crazy how far it has come in a few weeks worth of work.
 
 
and finally we rebuilt the transom, the one on there wasn't in TOO bad of shape but we had plenty of wood and figured we might as well replace it along with the rusted hardware.
 
 
That was all for this weekend though. I am hoping that the new siding material will be in at the beginning of the week so that we can knock that out this week and install next Friday. I went with a Dark Blue siding so it should look pretty good with the grey carpet.
 
We also ended up ordering a cover for it along with some other things and will probably try to order a new bimini this week or next.

Thanks guys! 

To rebuild the transom all we did was used left over marine grade wood we had from our deck. We doubled it up, gorilla glued it, and put a couple screws through it and grabbed new SS hardware from home depot to mount it back on the boat.

Didn't get too much done this weekend either. The siding is back ordered still and I am not real sure when it will be in. We put the console together for the most part though and I am really happy with the way it turned out.
 
 
I took the carb off to rebuild it and EVERY brass plug in it stripped the aluminum threads out as soon as I tried to take them out for cleaning. So I went ahead and sourced a new carb for it. I found 1 place with the OEM part and it took forver to find but I got one on the way for right at 160 bucks.
 
Since we got essentially nowhere with the carb we went ahead and took off the lower unit. I am 99.9% positive it has never been off. The oil was terrible, all of the seals were cracked, the plastic exhaust gasket piece was melted, and there was all kinds of deposits built up inside. As expected the impeller was missing a few pieces as well. Since we didn't have a new exhaust gasket or anything like that I went ahead and ordered up everything that was rubber inside the lower unit along with a new impeller housing and everything. So with new oil the lower unit should be pretty fresh.

Well this weekend we got a decent amount done, we put the fence on temporarily this weekend so that we could put the seats/console down for good. We also got the steering hooked up along with the shift/throttle cables. I am really happy with the layout though and even happier with the way this boat is turning out. We are still waiting on the siding to get here, it was back ordered but should be here this week. Unfortunately it won't get put on for another few weeks, but fortunately I won't be working on it because I will be on vacation in Hawaii.

 
We are going to add two post mounted chairs to the front of the boat as I am sure my dad and I will take the boat fishing. We need to get the radio and speakers next week and have them ready for when I get back in town so we can finish up as much as possible.
 
 
I also got the carb and all of the lower unit pieces this week so I can get the motor back together during the week hopefully so that we can mount it on the boat when I get back from vacation.

Date Posted: 06/06/2014 at 7:22pm
This is my first update in a while, I am not too upset about that though as this is where I have been:
 
Anyways, I got back from Hawaii last Thursday and after ~16 hours of sleep we got to work on the boat. We got a decent amount of stuff done so I am happy about that.
 
On the way home from the air port we stopped by Best Buy and got a few things for the audio on the boat just to try it out. We may add to it later or may leave it as it is because the sound system turned out pretty loud. We went with 4 6.5" speakers and a Kenwood bluetooth head unit. It is fairly simple but seems to work great.
 
 
The wiring on it wasn't bad at all, thankfully I would say that I am pretty decent when it comes to wiring. 
 
 
far from the prettiest I am sure but it will do the job just fine. All of the connectors are those shrink wrap style and I used a decent amount of weatherpack connecters throughout the harness.
 
So the console is pretty much done there are like 2-3 wires to tie together this weekend along with adding the nav/anchor lights. I installed the ignition and I guess the bit had a hairline crack in it or something that we didn't notice. It broke and the hole saw we were using messed the front of my console up pretty bad CryCryCryCry
 
 
I was about 20 seconds away from scrapping the console and buying a new one but my dad talked me out of it. I am still pretty upset that it happened though.
 
We got the motor installed and wired up as well with a "fresh" carb along with a rebuilt lower unit. We ordered pretty much everything new and it came together really nice. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of this process as my hands were covered in nasty/old lower unit oil. Thankfully my dad went out and took care of fluids along with a few other things for me this week though!
 
 
Finally, we got most of the accessory lights wired up. I am going to add a white LED bar under each of the seat bottoms still as "storage lights" but we took care of the under base lighting that I wanted. I am usually not a big fan of the neon/led glowing look but it came out good on the boat I think. So they will stay, they make it much easier to see things on the floor too so that is a plus.
 
 
This weekend we will take care of some other stuff as far as lighting/wiring goes and hopefully get it fired up. We are still waiting on our siding from PS Confused the first batch of it was back ordered then damaged now we're waiting again. I guess it is what it is though.
 
We are also having our prop repaired. It was way over pitched for what came with the boat from the factory so we are going to have it repaired and use it as a starting point to see how it runs.

Don't lose any sleep over the console.  Stuff like that happens.

If it really bugs you, you can take a piece of flat plastic material and make an escutcheon....

Or find somebody like me with a 3D printer and have a custom escutcheon printed in ABS.

I think it turned out great as well.  I also thought about the escutcheon plate as well.  Maybe you could find something that matches your switches and fabricate out of that!!  If you decide you can't live with it let me know, maybe we can work something out!!Wink

Yeah, sorry for the lack of updates but not much has really changed. I got the siding in and still need to put it on but I am trying to find someone to make me 2 bends for the back portion of railing so that I can put the siding on (as is the siding falls 2" short of fitting, so I want to add a bend and then I can do the siding in 2 pieces.) I took the wheels off of the trailer though and powder coated them. They were all rusted and used to be white. I obviously got the ladder on as well, though I am going to modify it I think because once it gets wet it seems to slide aroundo n the toons as you're using it and it. Here are some pics though.
 
 
I threw on a Stinger isolator so that I could run 2 batteries.
 
 
a good friend of mine sent me some LED lights to use as docking lights on it, they're bright as *inappropriate language not permitted* but I am really happy with them.
 
 
Here is a shot from our first day out too, My dad decided to hang over the front and use some power tools to attach a few things we had forgotten about.
 
 
 
We were out 2 weeks ago on sunday when some pretty bad storms rolled in too. that was a good time for sure. Trying to get out of the water real quick.
 
 
and Finally, here are those wheels I did. I am really happy with the way they turned out. We are going to try and get the trailer done up soon too.
 
 
I will be sure to get some updated pics in the next few weeks though assuming we can find some railing and get the new siding on.

Thanks guys, and yeah we were out at Hillsdale, it is too convenient to pass up. Plus the motor has been giving me a hard time. we found out my grandpa wayyyyy over pitched it a while back and we at first were only able to get 2800 rpm out of it at WOT. I replaced it with the correct pitch prop, but we can only get like 34-3500 rpm out of it at 3/4 throttle or so and when you go to WOT the motor bogs real bad like it is losing a cylinder. I have ordered parts to re-do the fuel pump, new coils, wires, plugs (again), and am going to replace the fuel line. The compression seems to be fine so I don't believe that to be the issue. If I can't figure it out with this ~$150 I will start searching for a 70-80hp merc to replace the 35 with.

Hi
The Pontoons look great I saw where you said you used Toon Brite is there a certain way to apply it my toons are dull and I would love to get them looking like yours do. Any tips on cleaning them are appreciated. Also did you have to seal them to keep them clean and shinny, any power tools involved?
Thanks.

Where did you get those wire terminals from? I'm rebuilding an '87 right now and it looks identical to yours! Great job!

Great Job...Where did you buy the gauges on the right side of the console?

The wire terminals are Sierra FS46250 bus bars. I got them from academy sports but you can find them all over the Internet too.

The gauges are Teleflex Eclipse series gauges, they're pretty cheap. I got mine off of eBay though just found the part numbers I needed and ended up saving 60 bucks or so by using that instead of a vendor.

I still have yet to get around to doing the siding because I ended up taking a job with BNSF and moved to Fort Worth. The boat is still with my parents but I will be getting it before it gets warm again down here so I can hopefully get some siding on it and enjoy another summer with it.
