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 …

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 …
