Sanded, lettered and getting ready for more coats. Her original Red interior sample waiting to be done!
This week while on a production for work in the NYC area we had an opportunity to visit our pals at Katzs Marina. We also brought Stinky to have her Van Ness repaired engine installed and any small issues on Stinky fixed. We also got a chance to see the update on WECATCHEM and her varnish. The speed and quality of work done at Katzs is insane.
3 more coats to go!
Alan matched her type perfectly. We chose gold after all since she is used so much and varnish turns the silver and alum over time gold anyway

All her parts are getting refinshed for the next 60 years of life
Every room in the shop has some WECATCHEM part in it! This boat is massive
WECATHEMS engine cover. She needed some repairs. Note the Hull Number penciled in near the bottom! Original magic. To think that back almost 70 years ago, a man wrote that on there never thinking that one day some folks around the globe would see it. Dang!
Jose, sanding, more sanding, and more sanding!
Dang! DO NOT ARM WRESTLE WITH JOSE!
Stinkys engine all ready
She is waiting for her beauty treatment
This amazing Century is getting close to being done. This thing is AMAZING. Your head snaps around so much, you get dizzy. Hell even looking up is insane!
Parts, parts and more parts!
Smart ass pals are there as well! Alan and Bob!
Bottoms being painted and getting ready for summer on the lake
Just another crazy day at the marina!
You can visit Katzs Marina buy clicking here. But really if you are in the New York area. its worth the drive.
Looking great Matt, looking great 👍👍
I spent yesterday at the spa too. I’m not stinky today!!
Matt, I see $$$$$$$$$$$$$
The heck with the boats, I think I have “Finish Room Envy”. I can see myself in Wecatchem’s finish from here!
Rabbit had her varnish refresh last fall, had one quick spin of the lake in mid October and then straight to the boathouse for her long winter sleep. The boat house reeks of varnish. What a sweet smell. I hoped to wake her up this weekend, but it snowed here in Minneapolis/Wisconsin last night, so it may week another night.
Katz’s sure does some amazing work, and what a BEAUTIFUL shop!
