1956 Helton Wood Boat

Hello All!!

My father, brother-in-law, and I have recently started this project of restoring a 1956 Helton Wood Boat that my father has had sitting in his yard for some years Tongue out.

We decided to start from the bottom up with the original Tilt O Matic trailer...

Tilt O Matic top part This is the top of the Tilt O Matic trailer. This is to be sanded, Phospho treated, and then painted an International Red since my father is an "old" engine and tractor buff Laughing.


This used to be an old 50's Green which had all but coroded away. Fortunately the green is still on the boat and looks in pretty good shape to keep.

Best Marine Epoxy

My favorite epoxy? Progressive Basic No-Blush Epoxy
