1957 Century Resorter 16' - collision repair
Note: this boat is being restored for our customer and is NOT for sale.

This was a low hour (164 actual), well preserved original boat that we brokered last summer.  Unfortunately, the new owner has an accident with coming in to shore and collided with a steel pier (ouch!) during rough and windy conditions.  The boat sustained damage to the starboard hullside, covering board and transom.  


Hagerty Insurance provided their normal excellent claim service and we have begun the replacement of the damaged planks which will be followed by refinishing the hullsides and covering boards so that everything matches. 
MBBW has removed the interior and the damage planks in preparation for replacement. 
Above: replaced planks installed; below repaired areas in stain and a few coats of varnish 
Many builder coats of varnish to the repaired areas complete, we applied two coats over the entire hullside followed by a final varnish, now the boat is ready for assembly

Repaired covering board 

Repair complete, new varnish on deck and repainted deck stripes really make this boat look great!
