A week and a half ago I took on another yacht, which I have been trying to finish. The weather did not cooperate this week, but today it will be finished. So many precious hours, sweat, and learning into this one. My wife as well has put many hours in helping me hand waxing around the control area, polishing the chrome areas, cleaning the windows, and wiping the entire boat down to remove all powder from buffing. There have been so many barriers in trying to get this one completed, but the results are absolutely amazing. Can you tell this boat is a 1986 Silverton? This boat looks fresh off the assembly, with a mirror reflection in the paint. Finally a moment of accomplishment and the feeling of crossing the finish line is finally here.
Yacht detailing on the water is very dangerous. When I took this job I was excited about it.
On a beautiful Friday morning I arrived at Louisville Yacht Club, as I entered the gates I saw all these beautiful boats in the water. I drove around to the slip that it was parked in. I got out of my van and realized what did I get myself into. This yacht was huge compared to some of the boats that I had detailed. Then I thought to myself how am I going to detail the other half of the boat, since there was no dock structure on the other side. Well after discussion with the owner I decided the yacht was going to have to be turned the other way so I could reach the other side. Therefore, after two days of sweat and meticulously cleaning and buffing the outside of this yacht, I was absolutely amazed at the results. By the way thanks to my beautiful wife who helped me the second day, I probably would have come back a third day.
