Default Maxum 2700 Paint Project

Last fall I got a 1990 Maxum 2755 Cruiser. Was sorta a fix'er up but did run out well. I loved the lines of the hull but the 90's paint scheme and vinyl stripes I just couldn't live with. Here's a few pics of what I did...

The day I bought it...


After 12 hours of vinyl stripe removal and some gel coat fixes...


Taped off, getting close!!

Wow. Does not look like the same boat! Are you in the painting business or did you have someone do that for you?

Very Very Nice, what type of paint did you use? Echo to Cymru post do you paint for a living?

Thanks guys.

Yes, I did this myself. I don't paint for living, just a hobby. Paint is sherwin williams automotive for top side. Have some west marine house brand bottom paint on the way. It will be black as well.

I way underestimated the amount of time it would take to complete, but it was fun and definately different from painting cars!

Well, if you want a bit more "fun", head on over to Atlanta and play to your hearts content on a 2900SCR! :-) Wow.

Indeed, looks like a different boat - a job well done.

And oh, cool Old's in the background.
