Summer 2006 project: 1987 Atlantic 190

Former staff chase boat @ Pine Beach Yacht Club in Toms River, NJ - completely trashed gunwales & exterior;

extensive gouges & damage to original white gel-coat (looked like it'd been through a leaf chipper).  Minimal blistering on bottom.  Fresh bottom paint every year (over top of previous coat).  20yrs of bottom paint & brown water stain from Toms River, rub-rail damaged beyond usable condition.  Stripped all hardware, soda-blasted old paint off, 2 months to fill & fair w/ silica / micro-sphere epoxy resin mix.

Sprayed fresh lt. green gel-coat & polished - installed new Taco rub-rail, re-powered w/ 97' Johnson 115hp (less than 20hrs)


Lots of VERY hard work finally yields an incredibly sweet ride!

This boat cleaned up really well.  It has turned out to be a very fast, smooth & dry riding vessel for an open style hull.  The boys down in Kinston, NC who designed & built these boats really had their manure together.  It is built like a tank w/ incredibly thick, hand laid fiberglass.

Sadly, Atlantic Boats went under in 2002.
