    2452 Monkey Fur Question-gctid382668

    Hey Everyone! I have a 1994 2452 and have been thinking about taking the "monkey fur" off the underside of the hardtop because it is pretty well stained with bug squishes, has some mildew and is sagging in the middle. Before I embark on this project, does anyone know what it looks like underneath? Also, how large of a project is this? Is it simply just taking it off and painting the underside or is there a ton of glue and other domino projects to follow? (Although it is a boat and there are always projects!! )

    Any insight or photos would be very helpful! Thanks!!!!

    Monkey fur on the hardtop? Do you mean in the cabin or cockpit area?

        Rat fur under the hardtop???? My hardtop (1999 2452) underside is white vinyl over open-cell squishy foam. Under the foam is unfinished fiberglas cloth - pretty rough looking. If you are talking about the cabin, there's nothing underneath the fur except glue residue and unfinished fiberglas cloth (except for the bolts and nuts protruding from various deck fittings and such). Bayliner never intended these areas to see the light of day, so they aren't pretty. You could use paint, but it wouldn't hide the unfinished look. If I were going to just remove and paint, I'd skim on a light coat of bondo (or thickened epoxy if money is no object) to even out the surface, sand smooth, then prime and paint. However, I believe cockpit (and cabin) noise levels would increase due to additional sound waves reflecting off the hard surface.

          Read the link in my previous post and look at the photo of my rat fur replacement.

            Thanks a ton for the insight. My 2452 has the fur on the underside of the hardtop as well as all in the cabin. It sounds like a bit of a project that maybe I will put stain remover to work instead of my power sander! I wonder if there were different trim packages that Bayliner put together and the "base model" got fur instead of vinyl.

              If you want vinyl go to Jo Ann fabrics, they usually have several colors of marine vinyl, watch for a sale.

                I have an 89 2655W that I bougth as a project. My fur was horrible as well. Nothing would clean it etc. I didn't like the idea of doing it myself. When I got all the uphostery redone, I got the upholsterer to quote redoing the entire interior. It was $1100 to strip out the old a redo with new fur. It now lookslike a new boat. It took him a half day to remove the old stuff and about a day to reinstall. As someone else said, it aint pretty under that fur. After seeing the mess and sh!t created from the removal, I am glad I didn't do it myself.

                  I have been thinking about gutting my 2252 cabin of the dreaded monkey fur also. This is one thread that I keep going back to from time to time. http://www.baylinerownersclub.org/fo...-Bayliner-2670 I believe somewhere in that thread is a link to a photo album with even more pictures.

                    When we got our 2855 the monkey fur was black with mould, nothing would clean it. Came accross DETTOL MOULD AND MILDEW REMOVER.This stuff realy works, just spray on open a beer, and sit back and watch the monkey fur renew itself. No need to rub give it 10 mins and then pat with some paper towels.Bingo your done, it works on anything that is green even the canopies. I hosed the canopies after 5 mins.Did all this 6 months ago and all is well

                          Probably one of the links that got lost when the forum switched servers...
