1998 Ski Nautique - Black / Zephyr

This 1999 Ski Nautique is one of our stock boats, and I used it as my personal ski boat last summer. It is a good runner, and has GREAT colors. I have decided to do a partial restoration on this boat, and then list it for sale. I am planning to restore the gelcoat, install all new factory graphics, powder coat the windshield frame, do a thorough cleaning on the carpet and interior, and freshen up the dash a little bit. The swim platform will be refinished too. 1998 and 1999 are my favorite years of the "bubble butt" Ski Nautiques. Follow along as we give this beautiful boat new life!

While this boat is having gelcoat work done, we're going to attack the dashboard. Here's the current state of the dash. We're having new dash panels made for the switch area and the stereo area, and the gauges will be cleaned up. Stay tuned for the finished product!

Our teak restoration expert is working on the swim platform today. It is getting a full sand, and then will get numerous coats of teak oil. He's also painting the brackets, so this platform will look great when he is finished!

More work on the pinstripe removal today. They are finally mostly off! Those were REALLY on there! It is almost ready for gelcoat work now.

Today, we removed all of the decals and pinstripes in preparation for full gelcoat restoration. We'll pull the windshield and dash too before the gelcoat work. The dust you see is from the rubber wheel that we sometimes use to remove stubborn decals. Normally a heat gun does the trick, but often the pinstripes require the use of the wheel. I can't wait to see this black boat all shiny and new!
