Refreshing my 2003 Redfisher 18

Recommended Posts

To make a long story short, I put my boat in my fathers name to help him get a loan about 2 weeks before he passed away. Scary stories of estate issues go here... I was able to buy her back from the estate. Given the amount of work I had put in a few months before all that went down, I stripped her and left her uncovered since august 2018, with the exception of the motor, related rigging, and wiring I had just done. I'm now in the process of bringing her back up to speed. Just awaiting my gauge restoration from gaugesaver and should be back on the water in the next week or two. I saw this area has not had any posts in a while, so here are some photos of "before" and now. I use quotations because I didn't think to snap any pics until I had already rinsed a lot of the dirt off the surface... I will follow up with some more photos once I reinstall the gauges, lights, cushions, radios, antennae and speakers.

I rewired in July of 2018 with some good stuff so it doesn't need new wires yet. My switch panel is also only 3 or 4 years old, as well as my breakers, but I will probably replace the trim tab switches and possibly the accessory switches if need be. I also need to add an led inside the console as I had a panel made with clear words specifically to backlight it and never got around to it. If I don't do it now I'll get lost in the mangroves again and it wont happen until next rewire, lol.
