Talking 1993 Lund Pike Rebel 16 Boat Restoration Project

I began restoring my Lund in 2012 due to a rotted floor caused by waterlogged factory open cell foam floatation. The original factory paint and decals were toast as well from dock rot. I made a lot of progress that 1st summer, then became burned out and quit before the project was finished. I wrapped the boat in plastic and figured I would get back to it someday. I am starting up again now and am determined to complete the project. I will post some of the original pictures I took back in 2012 to bring you all up to date as well as the new pictures as I finish up this project. This post is about how I restored my boat, but is not intended to tell you how to restore your boat. I am not a certified marine mechanic or boat builder. My post is for entertainment purpose only.

LPR16,

You did a great job on your boat, looks great!!


Where did you get your foam? Any idea of foam type classification? Any idea on weight of all the wood you put in?

Default response to apple guy

I used polyethylene foam blocks because my original floatation failed, when it comes to floatation it is best to contact the boat manufacturer. As far as the wood, there is approx. 150lbs of wood in the boat. The Lund reference catalog shows the boat weighs 455lbs., wood, hull and standard features installed.

I would let your fishing partner put the decals on. If you don't think they look good you can blame them and harass them quite a bit while fishing.

Default I installed some of the decals but ran out of time...

I installed my registration numbers/letters and my LUND decal on one side of the boat, started getting cold so I quit and covered it for the night. Still have to do the 16 Pike Rebel decal towards the stern, and the entire other side of the boat. Sure hope the LUND decal sticks, it was a real pain in the wazoo to install. Seems secure ATM. Will have to see how it goes tomorrow. Not sure what decal is going on the stern end yet, but its going to say 16 Pike Rebel. Here are a some pics...

Default one side done (decals)

Finished up one side of the boat, in the end decided to keep this real simple. I did not like the original 16 Rebel decals Lund shipped in 1993 with my boat and decided I wanted straight forward marine letters, just like my registration numbers/letters, so the model and reg numbers match in size and font, I whited out the reg numbers but you get the idea I'm sure. I left exactly 1 inch gap between the top aluminum rail and all the decals and numbers, just in case I want a wide tri-color stripe, maybe charcoal/clear/silver metallic or something like that. I think I like the plain all business look atm...lean and mean.

In all seriousness nice resto!
