    92 Bayliner Capri 2050 LS-gctid384595

    Hello I'm a newb. my name is Scotti. As stated, I own a 92 Capri it's a 2050 LS, I have had it for 15 years and I just love the boat!It is looking a bit outdated and the interior is beat up. I put a new interior in it about 12 years ago and over the years it just got trashed.I'm looking to do some upgrades, I'm not much of a boat guy, I can however do most of the work myself. I have a Range rover shop where I can do everything and anything to the Rangi. So I am more then capable. Actually about two years ago, I put a new floor in the boat, it took me a month but it turned out good..Here are my thoughts and please give me yoursI want to replace the seats maybe put the swivel buckets in, where the lounge chairs are currently sitting.I was thinking of installing an engine cover like what's in the Capri SS with the couch.I would like to change the side pocketsI want to replace the dash / instrument cluster to a later style..I would like to put some decals on the side of the boat..I would like to put in a kicking stereo.Where is the best place to buy parts OEM or After market.

    After 15 Years it is still looking pretty good.

    Looking at what you want to do I would think you would be better off trading up to a later model with factory fittings. This would give you all the things you want along with a later model which will hold its value a little longer.

    Things like a new dash cluster, seats and upholstery will start to add up then you have you time...

    Having said all that you might just be happy to modernise what you have.. Who am I to say differently, just a suggestion..........

      Thank you for your reply, but I'm going full speed ahead.I just completely polished the exterior of the boat using the 3M 123 system with a 7" 1700 rpm buffer (Milwaukee) Hours upon Hours of work...I gutted the interior, and I'm getting ready to remove the seat box's and after a bit of glass work, I will be installing swivel bucket seats. I will be installing a full engine cover with a bench seat in front of that. Where the rear seat's use to be located, these areas will be come storage under the new engine cover.

              Ok so here is an update, I completed the cleaning of the boat and it turned out beautiful..:worthI removed 90% of one of the box's, please understand this was no easy task, anyone who tells you otherwise is not being honest! There will need to be a fair amount of wood and glass work completed before anything else. If you are not able to, or familiar with fiberglass repair please think twice about moving forward..I have an ace in the hole, a very good friend of mine is an expert in fiberglass builds and repairs. I am actually going to have him make me a completed dash, so I can throw out, what Bayliner has in place. He wants to remove the wood deck completely and make a thick fiberglass floor with no wood!!! I'm not sure if that's a good Idea, does anyone know if there are boats out there without the wood? SORRY if that's a dumb question.. I'm not much of a boat guy..On another note is posting this update a waste of time?

                  Id like to see what you come up with also. It looks like I may be keeping our boat for a while yet and I`ve been debating something similar.

                    Here is an update. Today I'm taking the boat to my buddies shop, where we will remove the dash, glove box and the wood back rest around the windows, we replace them with fiberglass. We will also remove the floor and replace it in it's entirety, we will add additional floor supports for the swivel seats..Does anybody have any pro's or cons on these seat by Overtons?

                      just a suggestion but your friend may know: if you want to make an all fiberglass floor strong enough it will be very heavy as a lot of glass has to go into it. The better way is to use 4lbs closed cell PU foam (1/2" thick, structural foam) and coat it on both sides with fiberglass. Makes for a very strong and lightweight floor. Had my entire hovercraft build that way and I could lift the 14x7ft hull without help from others.
