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