This is the boat soon after we received it. We have removed the hardtop, windshield, engine and interior upholstery. The frames and planking were quite weak.
Here's the boat upsidedown. The bottom planking has been removed, the keel is off, and a new stem has just been steam bent into place. The bottom planking has been left on to maintain the shape of the boat.
The bottom planking's done. The topsides planking is gradually being replaced. What a lot of bungs to chip!
A feature of these Centurys is the fabric covering on the decks. The original type of fabric is still available.
The first coat of varnish has been applied. The bottom has bronze paint.
After removing the interior we turn tho boat over.
Now we've installed the keel and the bottom planking is in progress.
He she is all planked up. Considerable sanding to do before being turned upright.
This is the stealth version! Really, the boat's covered up to spray the gold sheer stripe.
The boat's ready for customer pickup! A great feature of this Coronado is the sliding hardtop. Distinctive features of these Centurys are the black trim boards on deck and black/chrome strips along the topsides.
