Need advice first boat repairs

Post by petes67bird » 29 Aug 2016, 14:05

Hi, so I got my first boat that is going to be a gift for my dad, it's a 1960 starcraft. There are several screw holes that I need to patch up on the side of the boat above the waterline that I will then paint over. What is the best way to do this and then paint?

I then have to remove the rear depth finder that will leave 7 holes. What is the best way to do that? I was thinking rivets with 5200 put all around the rivet prior to inserting into the holes.

Looking for recommendations on how to do this. I want to paint the top a turquoise color and possibly the bottom white, not sure yet. Was going to use the roll and tip method.

Over the winter, I plan on building a deck to replace what's there. It only has one metal box for foam up front. I probably will be back to ask for a good floor plan. Not sure since the benches are wooden if I could just remove the middle bench without issue. Thanks
