Rebuild Engine, Budget Busted - Chris Does What

Rebuild Engine, Budget Busted EP #12 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Well, just killed the budget as our engine repair went from $800 when we were just replacing the head, to $2,400 to replace the long block. We lost the $800, this was money that we used buying the new head and gasket, but you live and learn. At the end of this project, we will …

Boat Bilge, Preparing for Fiberglass - Chris Does What

Boat Bilge. Preparing for Fiberglass EP #11 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

I think sanding Boat Bilge and Stringers is the most uncomfortable part of the restore of this 2004 Bayliner Bowrider 175. We don’t think that the new floor will leak water, but if it does we don’t want the stringers to rot. Fiberglass is amazing, but installing it has to be the hardest part of …

Restore Boat Chalky Gel-Coat - Chris Does What

Shine Back For Boat’s Chalky Gel-Coat EP #10 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

This boat’s GelCoat was chalky and white from years of negligent. We restored the color and realized the boat was not white bringing out the original beauty of the Gelcoat. Danielle makes the boat shine and she steps you through how she did it. Danielle is not only great to work with on this boat …

Boat Restore Budget - Chris Does What

Budget-Friendly Boat Restore EP #9 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

We go over what we think this boat restore will cost and what we have spent so far. The Mercurice 3.0 engine only needs a cylinder head to fix the issue. The rest of the thing in the project to restore this 2004 Bayliner Bowrider 175, though cheaper, will nickel and dime your wallet. Well, …

Boat Oxidation And Floor Removed -Chris Does What

Boat Oxidation And Floor Removed EP #8 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

We have most of the Oxidation from our boat gel coat and the floor is out. With just a little TLC we have seen a great improvement in our 2004 Bayliner Bowrider 175 boat. We still keep taking things off the boat like the rub rail and discover more areas that need attention. My wife …

Installed Seaflow Bilge Pump - Chris Does What

Seaflo Boat Bilge Water Pump 750gph EP #6 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Installed the Seaflo bilge pump and the first day of testing in our boat and we love it. May get another one just to have a spare in the bilge, at $29 it does not cost much. Danielle’s biggest fears on the ocean are sinking and sharks, this pumps water out of the boat faster …

Bilge Pump Dirty Job | Chris Does What

Bilge Pump Replacement On Inboard Boat EP #5 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Figured while we had the engine torn down in our inboard outboard boat, it was the best time to replace the bilge pump on this sterndrive Bayliner. The bilge pump started smoking when we were washing the boat out and filled the bilge with water. It was a scramble to get it unplugged so it …

Marine Battery Charger | Chris Does What

Review 2 Amp Marine Battery Charger EP #4 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Marine charger for $16 to protect our battery is worth it. This Black & Decker 2 amp battery charge will save me $100s not having to replace my marine battery in the boat as often. Plus we like to sit out in our 2004 Bayliner Bowrider 175 to escape the Florida bugs and listen to …

Stuck Valve | Chris Does What

Remove Head Off Mercruiser 3.0 Liter EP #3 || Bayliner Bowrider 175

Took us about 2 hours to take the head off this boat engine for a Mercruiser 3.0 Liter engine in a 2004 Bayliner 175 Bowrider. The head did have a valve that was stuck, so we are going to have to get that machined, but I was really happy with the condition of all the …
