Well, I finished the boat last Saturday and with the exception of a finicky sub, it should be all set for summer! <BR>I bought the Sanger a little over a year ago and am really happy with what is has to offer. While small, it's paid for and throws a decent wake for my level of riding. So rather than get something new, I took the money and dialed it in. With 320 hours, and a crew rarely more than four, I figure it will around for a while. <BR>Since December: <BR>Rhinolined the swimstep <BR>New Glass w/ Tint <BR>Hot/cold shower <BR>Wetsand the gelcoat <BR>Fresh Air Exhaust <BR>Pioneer 6900 for the Ipod/Zune <BR>Wired Remote front and back <BR>Gator Grip on Transom (not much but it helps!) <BR>Keel Guard <BR>Trailer Overhaul <BR>Thanks to Hurliman Boats for all their work and advice as well as everyone on WW! <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/559719.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/559720.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/559721.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/559722.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/559723.jpg" alt="Upload">

beautiful work

jonblarc7 03-20-2008 9:00 AM

Looks great how was the gelcoat before you wetsanded. It looks like its right off the show room floor.

richnnorcal 03-20-2008 9:45 AM

Looks spankin new, you got to change your profile pic, does not even look like the same boat. <BR>Congrats on the work!

lseghatch 03-20-2008 9:47 AM

You would think that the boat had been repainted in those pics. Anything more of the rhino lined swim platfrom?

fatsac 03-20-2008 10:32 AM

Thanks! The lined platform is perfect. The guy claims to have mixed it a little softer than they use in trucks so it's easy on the knees. The gel was decent but clouded over and heavily scratched on the bow. I was blown away with how it came out.

tversetti 03-20-2008 11:08 AM

now that you changed your profile pic..... <BR>please post the old pics!

fitzh2o 03-20-2008 11:51 AM

PLEASE!! That is a great job w/ the entire thing! would love it if you would come by and help me out!!! been working on most of those same projects myself but is taking much longer due to college tuition for the kid and a lack of freinds that are into boats-all my buds are into motorcycles! if you could list the steps/products you used refinishing that would be great!

lovin_the_wake 03-20-2008 11:55 AM

wow that thing is F-ing Beautiful <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

digger_004 03-20-2008 6:54 PM

Since he mixed the platform softer, does that mean no more kneepads?

Ben Kerran 03-20-2008 7:44 PM

that boat looks new and SIC behind the truck. Nice job!

newty 03-20-2008 8:09 PM

<BR> <BR>That is PIMP!!!

wakereviews 03-20-2008 9:04 PM

Aaron, you said it best. Nice work fatsac. That boat is pimp.

rallyart 03-20-2008 10:25 PM

You've got to feel proud. <BR>Nice boat.

2007_x2 03-20-2008 11:41 PM

dude great job lookks brand new!

reachjims 03-21-2008 5:38 AM

looks great, whats with redirecting the exhaust downward?

big_matt 03-21-2008 6:31 AM

Damn fine work, that looks fn awesome. Your gonna make people wonder what else they could be spending boat payments on!

fatsac 03-21-2008 6:47 AM

Wow thanks everyone! I'll have to search for some before pics but my PC crashed last fall so most are lost. Hurliman Boats in Penryn has all the answers to the gelcoat. Truthfully, I buffed it out after they were done wetsanding. It was something I wanted done right the first time. I polished and polished last year but could never get the cloud and scratches out. They had it done in a day. <BR>For the finishing, I go over with their mix called Longevity and end with 303. That stuff is the sh-t. <BR>Jimmy - Rather than invest in a louder stereo, the FAE quiets the exhaust. Tomorrow will be my first time using it. Can't wait!

santango98 03-21-2008 10:13 AM

Great job!!! Man you got that thing dialed in...I need to contact those guys at Hurliman Boats. Do you mind me asking how much it cost? Same boat except red and white.

formulad97 03-21-2008 10:14 AM

Where did you get the swim platform done at and how much? <BR>Thanks

hp_inc 03-21-2008 10:53 AM

She is all pretty Fat Sac...looking good. So when are we low riding in it? Looks like a whole different boat. Nice work!

fatsac 03-21-2008 2:38 PM

Anytime Justin... but uhhh... I'm down to head out in the Malibu too. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Vince - Give them a call. I know he's more competitive in the winter and room in their shop is tough to come by. The place is basically a modified barn. Well worth it though. <BR> <BR>D.C. - Line-X in Rancho Cordova.

I missed the first profile picture. Post up a before, that way we can see how far she has come. The gelcoat looks new from what I can see. Congrats on a clean boat, enjoy the summer.
