The final sanding of the console was completed today. Any imperfections were filled with Formular 27 and sanded smooth.
After sanding down the areas of the center console that was filled with Cabosil Captain Al blew away any dust and filled any pin holes and small imperfections with Evercote Formula 27. This is a fast drying filler that allows you to sand after 20 - 30 Minutes.
More fiberglass work was done on the 1979 23 Mako. Using Cabosil which thickens fiberglass resin to fill larger areas ad voids.
When you need to replace the tank on a 23 Mako you must completely remove the center console to access the tank. While you have the console off you might as well restore it and make it better than it ever was.
More work was done on the fuel system today, including setting the tank in place and making access hatches for the fill and vents.
Day 2 on the 1979 23 Mako "Special K's"
The crew at Babylon Boat Works removed the old tank from the boat and good thing because the tank had pin hole leaks seeping gag into the foam.
There is a new boat project at Babylon Boat Works. Yes another 1979 23 Mako. Today the T-Top and the console was removed.
A new project has entered Babylon Boat Works. This boat is another 1979 23 Mako and will be going through some major improvements in the next few weeks
