  • 2000 Sport Star 19

    Well, I bought my first boat in the middle of winter. I'd been looking for a decent boat for a bit now, but with the pandemic the pricing has been ridiculous. This one came up and it was only a couple of hours away. I went and took a look and decided to take the plunge. Figured if we waited to long on a decision it would go.

    It certainly needs some love, but I guess that is why the price was decent. I've been researching on Team Talk for a bit now and just want to say what an awesome resource this place is! Thanks for all the info. I will be asking lots more questions.

    As it is my first boat I'm learning along the way. Here is what I plan on doing:

    Removing all the decals
    Wet sand, polish, seal etc.
    Put new decals on
    Re-upholster interior
    Clean carpet
    Build rear bench with storage underneath
    Re-finish teak, it's in bad shape...yes, going the linseed route

    Once that is done we will look at the trailer. Brakes aren't working. Pretty sure actuator needs replacing. The brake fluid container is full of crap.

    Motor seems good. Compression is 175 in all cylinders.

    Let's see what happens. :-)

      That tug will clean up nicely. Good compression number(s).

      Have fun.

          Get a 3M stripper wheel (Scamazon) for decal removal. Saves tons of time. No harm to the gel.

            The bench we are building will have storage underneath. I'll post pictures as my wife builds it! :-)
            I'm getting better at removing decals as we go. They are coming off in a couple of pieces now.

              good luck with the restoration. I used to have that exact same model / colors. Here is my rear seat build thread;

                I love a good resto thread. Does not look like it is in too bad of shape! Not at all. Elbow grease, beer, and Alieve! pics, pics, pics

                      Decals are off and interior is out. Sent it to a local guy to re-do and change colors. He's done boats before and has an old Lotus Espirit that he is refinishing. Seems like he does good work.

                      Some pics without decals and the dirt. Wet sanding is next.

                        Above pics are some of the dirt.

                        Some of my pics are showing up upside down. I searched, but can't find the fix. Help?

                            Here are some pics with the decals removed and the right way around. Any suggestions on getting those rust stains off the transom?

                              The SQ5 Shift knob caught my eye !

                              The fiberglass will come back nicely with some elbow grease or the right products and some orbital polishing. 3M, Chemical Guys, or Megiuars will love that thing ...
