Renovation Nation

By BoatUS Magazine Editors

Bravo to the weekend warriors out there! We asked, and you responded, with great before-and-after pictures of your boats.

One of the best things about BoatUS members is the diversity of boats you take on the water. Powerboats, sailboats, big boats, little boats, just about everything from a dinghy to a superyacht. If it floats, it’s a good bet that one of you is floating on it. The common element is a love for the water, and in a lot of cases, an inability to stop tinkering with your vessel. When we asked you to send in pictures of your projects, we were bowled over by the amount of work that went into them. Whether it's a keel-up rebuild or a coat of paint, every boat needs a little something to call it done, to make it yours, to get it ready. Here’s a salute to the weekend warriors, the off-duty pros, and the backyard mechanics out there.
