River Queen Houseboats - rebuilding and restoring older boats
I have recently acquired a 1967 38' River Queen and the boat is actually in very good shape other than the roof over the front half of the boat.
Can someone tell me how the roof is constructed? I would like to know what I'm getting into before I start ripping things apart.
I was also wondering if I could strip the vinyl coating off of the cabin so it could be repainted.
All or any restoration/construction tips would be greatly appreciated. I want to thank everyone for posting some great information.
Thanks, Jon, Saint Louis, MO Reply - Answer
Well Jon, congratulations on acquiring your River Queen, they are some of the finest steel houseboats still around.
As to the construction materials used in the front overhang, I am not really sure, so I will leave this to folks that have actually taken it apart.Lastly
, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their River Queen houseboat restoration and rebuilding experiences.
