My 1976 Shell Lake - Lund 315  Guide Series - Fiberglass, Tri-Hull Boat

I recently traded my 16FT Leisure-Time Canoe for a 1976 Shell Lake - Lund 315 Fiberglass Tri-Hull boat. This webpage documents the restoration project of this rare little vintage boat.

The Trade of a Lifetime

The 1976 Shell Lake Lund 315
This is a photo of the boat in all of it's original splendor in the garage of the fellow I traded with.

Bad news for him and good luck for me. I see potential here beneath all of the Astro-Turf, dirt and oxidation. There's definitely a kick-ass fishing boat under all that dirt and grime!

It seems that the wife of the fellow I traded with wanted to get the “eyesore” out of the garage. That's a 1989 Johnson 25 HP Outboard and it runs GREAT!
The Shell Lake Lund 315 with new carpet
Step 1 - I replaced all of that old, ugly worn out green Astroturf stuff with a nice gray marine quality carpet. In order to do this I had to remove the old carpet and carpet glue. After a proper scraping and cleaning I installed the new carpet. I then cleaned, lubricated and re-installed the captain's chairs.

Step 2 - I removed the old Astroturf from the casting platform as before and glued some modern marine carpet in it's place. I still need to install some T-Molding to cover the exposed staples.

Step 3 - I installed some fishing pole hangers and a hanger for my net. I hope to be using that net soon!

Step 4 - Here's where "El Capitan" sits, a nice new cushy, padded seat at the rear of the bus.

Step 5 - Here's my "ghetto custom" bow rail. It will do nicely until I can source the fittings to build a real one. This one is strong and functional and what the heck, I built it from crap laying around my yard.

Step 6 - The hull shined up pretty well so far. I used bathroom soap scum cleaner to remove the oxidation and the black stains. I still need to polish the gel coat to a hi gloss. Also, check it out! The lights are now working!

Step 7 - I hooked up my Eagle locator and installed the sensor on the stern. Hopefully I can figure this thing out better than my Blackberry!
