To find a cherry non salted out 10-20 yr old Arima is a unicorn because most used play boats are like used lawnmowers.

Nice.

Was the Beige purchase a "let's see how it looks"?

Yes. It would be nice to find a pigment that was already close.

Years and years ago I took a touch-up class from Mohawk finishing products. I trained many employees to color match and touch up. White, off-white, and beige are the hardest colors to match. The white pigments cause the colors to dry a different color than when they are wet.

The touch-up classes are still available from WoodRepairProducts.com, as are the many colors and topcoats for cabinet and furniture finishing. Good people.

Arima Life / Re: Pedestal Seat Screws
« Last post by mariner on Yesterday at 06:33:07 PM »
I am not a fan of pedestal seats for that exact reason.   I had 2 brand new seats mounted to new pedestal basest at the helm and within one season the fasteners slowly came loose.   The internal retaining fasteners which were embedded into the floor to receive the bolts do not hold well especially with the torque and stress when someone sits on seats mounted to pedestal bases when the boat gets hammered in chop.  Some folks here seem to have had no problems and their fasteners have stayed in place.   Not mine.   You can rotate the base so that you can use screws on a fresh area without any holes for a more secure anchor point.  Another option is to use starboard or aluminum to make a square base.   Bolt the pedestal base to the square cutout and then use 4 large lag bolts on each corner of the square cutout to fasten to floor. That setup will be solid.  I'd seal off the old holes with marine sealant, epoxy, marinetex or plain gelcoat.

 I have Costco one for a 21 HT. It sticks a bit out the front and back but the back curtain shields the motor and kicker. The only issue is mine is in a storage yard and a bit difficult to back it in with limited space and  that one foot on each side with 2 axle trailer. I had my handy man redo it splaying out the side tubes and putting them into a galvanized 5 foot tubes sunk into post holes. The sun and wind are the big issues here ( no snow ). On my last one i put two Costo tarps together and put them over the top and tying them down with weights. They took the sun damage. I'm going to get around to it when it cools off a bit. And when I'm not working . And when the Butts are out. Maybe next year. Also hang a solar maintainer on the outside linked to the batteries since no electricity.

Thats the boat that was on the east coast members commented on a while back.

There is no reason why people cant post constructive critique on a boat and value without saying its a pos or not worth it without knowing what it can be bought for. But you cant really offer valid comments until you inspect it in person. Pics make them all look good unless they are detailed hi res which aint the case with cl.
If someone is after an older boat then the hull condition is paramount and I would much prefer to take a virgin cherry basic hull without 20 3 owner drill holes, dock rash, mold and salt/sun deterioration and build it to my liking. Other option is to inherit some other dudes idea of how a boat should be rigged/equipped and maintained.
There is no way defiance marine or any other f/g builder can afford to build a similar boat to the later model arima specs and hardware quality in 2020. To find a cherry non salted out 10-20 yr old Arima is a unicorn because most used play boats are like used lawnmowers.
