Hi I am trying to find what materials I need in order to finish my dumas Chris Craft boats, I am wanting to replicate the highly polished look on the Dumas boats can anybody please direct me to a retailer that will be able to supply the items I need and if anybody has a list of the items I need that would be great.
I completed the Dumas 36" CHRISCraft several years ago. I made sure all of wood planking was completely smooth and minus all dents. I covered the model in 5 oz. fiberglass cloth and cover it with resin/Hardener. The planking immediately shine out. I then did a light sanding and gave it one more coat of resin/hardener. When dried I put some auto wax on it. You can purchase this material in marine stores or a good hardware store. My father and i did this a long time ago a real 22 foot ChrisCraft barrel . We did a small corner of the boat first, you can do the same on the model. We did fiberglass the whole boat so that we didn't have to soak the boat at beginning of the summer
