TOPIC: 1958 Glass Magic Playmaster restoration/repair

Re:1958 Glass Magic Playmaster restoration/repair 5 years 9 months ago #72656

It has been a long time since I actually did anything to the Playmaster.
I just placed an order from Express Composites in Minnesota. Yesterday Son Ray let me know he would work in shop for a few days. :) Instead of "working" I decided to play with Playmaster. Goal is to fix bottom hull, transom and attach top, paint, install controls,sew up an interior, bend windshield, tow to Florida and go boating for a week or two. I think we can get that done in three days?! :lol:

Today was BOAT DAY!!! We fixed keel. Fixed some big ol holes. Then we cut out the rotten transom. Cut new wood to fit. Multiple coats of glass. Woohoo PROGRESS!!! It is now a boat-because it can float, not just have grass grow through it.

Perhaps a bit too cool and foam did not rise as it should have. Still we made more progress. The Playmaster now resides on its "new" trailer. When weather warms up we will continue the foaming of the hull. But now I can easily move boat into shop to do sanding.

Cold and darkness....worst time of the year. To brighten my spirits and the Playmaster I bought some bling for the engine. Thanks Jim.
Sun came out and I put windshield in place. That one part really makes the boat. Now I remember that I need a new one.....

This does not look like much but .....The move to Florida was way harder than one can imagine. This represents some free time. I was able to get the Playmaster out of its storage and added foam and then some filler. A little each day so we can play!!

Great to see you back on the project at the new home Dave! It's been a "long and winding road" (literally!) getting her this far, huh. Hang in there buddy, you're going to get her done yet. ;)

Get a mesh bag and fill it with moth balls hand hang it in the hull. Critters hate that stuff. Will keep them out of it. Skip.

What do you have when you have a moth ball in each hand?

Extra layers of glass on keel area and any other weak areas. Now smoothing out. Need to order some more foam and I can glass in floor. Hours and hours and hours into sanding. I am burned out on this never ending project, luckily Wife is now helping almost daily.
I am hoping to seal top this week.......

Not sealed yet. Did contact Todds Canopies to get an estimate for windshield. Looked at old pics of when we first got this. What was I thinking? I was thinking what a cool boat I have to save. Never again... I will just wait for Sabre63 to finish one!!

LOL Good one Dave! I / We know how it is when you get tired of all the sanding, but the payoff in the end is well worth it. There were several times when I had to take a break from the GT150 project, didn't think I was ever going to get it done. Margie coming out to help should make it go faster, and btw - What a Gal! My wife supplies all the moral support she can, but how many actually come out and help? (Not many my friend) Hang in there Dave, you're getting closer every day. ;)

This may look done but is only the epoxy sealer. I found lots of mistakes that will need correcting.

Dave, really looking fantastic, great job. We all know that no matter how hard you look for pits, air holes, scratches etc. they will always show up on the final finish coat, seems like a fact of life for any project I've ever done :)
Keep us posted.

Lather rinse and repeat. Find imperfections fill and sand. Over and over and over and over and over. It is almost how I want it. But.... I shot paint when humidity rose and .....Tomorrow I will wet sand. Plus found a couple of spots......But with one coat I can see the promise.
