I helped Rod a bit on it. Most of the fiberglass drift boats will get nicks and gouges if you use them. I would never let that dictate when and where I fish. Rod's boat was an average example of normal wear and tear. I would think most guide boats are touched up at the end of each season anyway. That would be my approach. The boat looks very nice and classy with his new color scheme and the interior layout is very clean.

I will add that I was overly impressed how well this boat turned out after the bottom was redone. I've seen a lot of boats that are patched after each season. This boat had a complete new bottom put on it. Now it looks awesome and rows like a champ. If you're in the market for a used drift boat definitely check it out.

I can provide pictures from when it was stirped down, sanded, new glass laid, a total of 3 layers, with the final layer being woven glass. After all the glass was layed I gave it 4 days to harden before sanding. After hours of sanding and prep work, I rolled a layer of COAT-IT on the bottom. Which is a an expoy with kevlar and graphite in it. The graphite of course making for a much more slicker bottom.

As I said, If you want I can send you before and after pictures.

just shoot me an e-mail or give me a call.
