the new project 54" of lobstah


I recently picked this boat up. Its a 54" lobster style hull. When I got it, it was in white gelcoat. it had some nicks an a few rough spots along the mold line. The mold line is right down the center line.

Construction is pretty good, it seems solid.

I have blocked the hull with 120grit, then I applied 2 coats of high build primer. After the primer, I blocked out the boat again with 320grit.

I will leave the hull in primer until I finish building the superstructure.

54"


Did you decide on a drive setup/prop? Should be a fine "lobster" boat!

I have decided on what I will be ordering for a prop, shaft and stuffing tube. I have not ordered it as of yet. She has me eyeball deep in paint, new appiances and other such things related to the house. I propably wont see the this boat, or my 1:1 boat for that matter until the end of the summer.
