  1. Crestliner Sabre 19.6 ft

    Hull is in great shape, needs a new paint job.

    Transom is brand new.

    Had an mercruiser but I sold it and the Johnson 150hp was sold as well.

    Interior is stripped down and ready to rebuild.

    1000$ obo

    I can sell it for scrap for 800$ I just find it’s a shame if I do.

    Trailer can be included for 1400$ more.




  2. I think most people use the expandable foam that comes in cans like paint.. Not sure if they do small sections so they can ream out the drain holes. Maybe run a line of rope through them and then pull it back and forth then pull it all the way out. Some guys use pool noodles , even read where someone was contemplating ping pong balls. You would have to check/Google Canadian boating laws in regard to legality. Think its something like 20' and under in the USA that it's required.

  3. Sounds like the floor has already been replaced before and the foam was removed at that time.
    I just redid the floor in my sabre and there was factory foam still there and in good enough shape that I didn't replace.
    Im not sure if its a legal requirement but I would definitely put new stuff in. If anything for the piece of mind knowing Illl be safer should the worst happen.

  4. Hi guys, I’m from Canada and I rebuilding a Crestliner Sabre I bought, it’s clean and I’m converting it from inbord to outboard.

    I ripped out the flooring and I’m in the process of putting the new floor in.

    Do I have to put expansion foam or can I leave it bare?

    Doesnt seem like it had any before, is there a law that you have to have some in?

    Thanks guys

  5. Anti fouling paint is toxic and dry sanding sends clouds of dust in all directions, coats everything nearby and is a serious health hazard. Wet sanding is safer. If you dry sand it you will need a respirator and cover everything. The dust will etch into gelcoat. Don't ask me how I know...

    Thanks for the info MikeNY but do i need to sand it down to the aluminum or do i need to only get to the original paint?
    And before re-applying it should i repaint the bottom with primer and paint and then anti-fouling? Thank you.

  6. Hi guys, a few months ago i pick up what seemed to be a steal of a deal... i bought a Sabre Crestliner 19 feet... i paid 1500$ with a galvanized trailer and the mercruiser engine and lower unit in great shape, i figured that the bought should be in good shape as well... in the last few months i stripped the whole boat and now im in the midst of rebuilding it, im getting ready to paint it soon and id like to know if i should sand the bottom of it bare and prime and paint, it seems to have a coat of anti-fouling... so i wonder how deep i should sans it before i repaint?

    Thanks for your help.
