At this point have decided that i will be pretty much ripping the entire interior, all the mattresses, upholstery, carpets, headliners and just making everything new. I don't like anything that is inside the cabin:) really, there is absolutely nothing that i like
I am keeping the kitchenette, but wrapping should take care of the outdated plastic veneer. Also i will replace the faucet and the counter with corian or similar.
Should be fun!

With taking out the headliner, is it going to be smooth enough to wrap it?

Well, it's not going to be a vinyl wrap, just your regular marine vinyl with foam backing

I started to peel mine back to see how bad it actually is . It doesn't seem that bad. Looks like a little solvent should take the glue off. The glass behind the glue seems pretty smooth for the most part. So I was thinking of priming it with some high build prime and then painting, getting rid of the monkey fur/ vinyl all together. I was also thinking of doing the wood grain wrap for accents as well.

hmmm, interesting, i was wondering what is underneath that stuff. I guess i can just use some kind of solvent and then a sander ro get it more or less smooth.
I figured if i use foam backing, about 1/8 foam layer, it will hide all the minor imperfections

What a coincidence! I had a local vinyl shop do mine for me though. :)

Where did you get the blue rub rail insert from? and about how much does that cost? thanks


the original rub rail insert was completely gray, faded and plastic was really brittle, looked like shit, i pulled it out and wanted to sand it and paint it, but soon realized that it will take me a week to do.
My mechanic actually had a blue rub rail insert lying around from someone who ordered it few years ago, but never installed it, so i got a really good deal on it.
You can however order the whole piece by foot , i believe any shop can do it, they have it in the catalogue, or you can get it from the internet, should be about couple of hundred bucks for 28 feet boat.
Just make sure you measure and get a bit more than needed. Putting it in is not easy though, took me over 2 hours jamming it in. Then you just cut it when its all in and secure it. Looks really nice and changes the look a lot too.

Also another quick upgrade, i love the 2855 dash with all the faux wood pieces, but the cheap plastic steering looked awful, so i got a Gussi steering wheel and put it in, and it lookes awesome. Can't take a photo now, but the difference is dramatic. Also matches the dash 100%, looks like an OEM wheel and was only 160 dollars with taxes and shipping.

Boat is looking good! Have any photos of the new steering wheel installed? What "hub" do you have? The link shows two options and I'd love to order one.

Thank you

Hello everyone, I am a brand new "Used Boat" owner and purchased a "decent" condition 1996 2355 Ciera and am working to bring it up to my idea of good condition.

I love your wrap and was planning the same exact thing! I have worked in the front of the house in a LARGE Chevrolet GMC Buick Dealership so I've dealt with a wrap company however I've never really tried to compare prices in our area of North Eastern Maryland.

Can you guys give me an idea of what it cost you to have the boat done?

I talked to our local guy who wraps cars, be said he had done a good number of boats and he'd love to do it and I am waiting on a price!

Again the boat wrap looks great and I look forward to sharing some pictures of my process as well! Btw, I don't have the patience to wrap it myself, if end up using a hammer, a torch, and a few gallons of highly combustible materials when I am done so wrapping it myself "might" not be a good idea!!!

Thanks,
William

I had it for 2 seasons, did a good job, but i think i will take it off in the spring and just do the same thing with blue gelcoat as it will be easier to buff and take care of
