I have a Very Nice Cruisers Inc. 18 ft Commander 1302. This came to me through an add
on Craigslist. The boat had been sitting , covered in a machine shed on a farm since 1982.
The paint on the starboard side was flaking, but it was fixable! The interior was dirty but in
great shape. I refreshed the varnish. The hull has been taken down to the wood and many
screw holes have had new putty applied with marine filler. I applied 3 coats of Interlux
marine primer and 3 coats of Interlux Premium Yacht paint. The bottom has 2 coats of Pettit,
Old Salem, 1959 Hard racing copper bronze paint.
The transom was taken down to the wood and has had 4 coats of marine varnish. All
Britework was cleaned and polished and is in great condition.
The engine had and issue with the #1 rod bearing. The engine was removed and stripped down.
All cylinders were inspected and honed. The crank was turned down .010. The rod was replaced
on the #1 cylinder and all rod bearings and mains were replaced with new ones. All rings were
replaced. The head was surfaced and a new gasket was installed. After installing the engine it was
started and ran 3 times out of the water. It was launched and ran in the water under power for an
additional 1/2 hour. The engine performed well!! Did not apply full power, would recommend a
The outdrive is a B model, Eaton. It has the capability to swivel 360 deg. Vertical and horizontal.
It can also be removed in this position. I tore it down for inspection and found all gears to be in
excellent condition and replaced seals and gaskets. There is also a new CV boot.
The original bimini top and enclosure are in good condition! The original travel cover is in
bad condition but still available for a pattern for a new one if desired. There is a new modern travel
The trailer is the original one. Its a Gator. This was also taken down to the steel and re-painted to the
original color and new decals were added. There are 2 new tires and rims. The original ones come with it also. New lights and wiring were also added.
Its ready for it New Home!! Nothing rides like a wood Boat!!
