20' 1954 Century Resorter "DIY" (Do It Yourself)

by Josh
(St. Louis Missouri)

I recently refinished my 20ft 1954 Century Resorter in 2012.

The old varnish was stripped and the wood was all hand sanded.

I applied new stain and 10 coats of varnish.

Most hardware has been re chromed, all new upholstery to match original, new flooring, fresh bottom paint, fresh bilge paint and caulk.

I ran the boat all summer in 2011.

The engine runs great but the boat has not been in the water for about a year due to the work being done on it.

There are about 652 original engine hours.

Engine is an Chrysler inline 6 Fireball engine with top speed close to 40mph.

There were only 99 of these made in 1954.

I believe the wood is mostly if not all original with no rot!

I get tons of compliments and looks from people at the lake.

This will certainly get attention.

Contact me for more pictures.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
