Meet The Winners of the TotalBoat Summer Photo Contest

Congratulations to the following winners of our Summer Photo Contest showcasing your projects that used our TotalBoat products. Again, it was difficult to choose only one of your submissions – but then we remembered – we write the rules – so why not pick 4 winners! And so we did. Each of the 4 winners showed us a unique project that caught our judge’s attention. We are thrilled to introduce you to our winners and their projects:

BEST PHOTO – Hey, we call it a photo contest so we better find a photo we like a lot. We fell for the lapstrake hull, the numerous ensigns and of course, the classic varnished older runabout.

Bob Rand’s 1963 Penn Yan Lapstrake runabout. Original owner. It has been painted many times over its 54 years, however the TotalBoat Topside Primer and Wet Edge Topside Paint with the Lust and Gleam Varnishes really make it shine. The boat currently sits on Long Pond in Lakeville, Massachusetts

BEST PROJECT: Taylor Williams is a 25 year old living in Texas. By day he is a home inspector, but his passion is wooden boats. He also works part time at a marina and owns a small side business building wooden boats and doing boat repair. Taylor’s current project is a small 9′ tugboat that he is am building for his nieces and nephews. It is a “Glen-L Tubby tug” that will be powered by a small inboard electric motor. Taylor is a huge fan of the TotalBoat product line. So far on this project he used TotalBoat TotalFair, TotalBoat 5:1 Traditional Epoxy, TotalBoat microballoons, TotalBoat silica thickener, and TotalBoat Polyester Laminating Resin

MOST TOTALBOAT USED: We were happy to declare this category a tie because we really couldn’t choose. And because we can!
