This one is my project.... The boat ran aground and had to replace the shafts, struts, props and rudders. There was some fiberglass work needed as well.

These engine will have to be put back in. There are also 2 brand new transmissions that were bolted on these as well.

Novice question on the polyurethane. I've only done transom decks, but wouldn't it be easier / less mess & masking to brush the polyurethane on versus all that plastic for spray?

Awesome looking shop and before these pics I was aggreeing with some posts on your other thread thinking you where crazy to be doing all that work mid season but it looks like it's just all in a days work for ya...

This job was done by the woodshop guys. I said the same thing, but there is a system here. The wood was heat stripped with a heat gun and a scraper. Sanded several times down to 120 grit paper. There was one coat of sealer followed by 3 coats of poly brushed on. After that I think there was 3 coats sprayed on after sanding, and then sanded again and another 3 coats sprayed on. Tomorrow there will be a final 2 coats sprayed on for the finish. There is some tempermental dry times with this product. Not regular polyurethane, this is produced by Awlgrip products. This wood work needed to be pristine, and I believe it will be. This will be a 3 week process after it is all said and done.
