The 52’ Scarborough “Agitator” was purchased in 2014 and immediately delivered to Bayliss Boatworks in Wanchese, North Carolina. The goal in mind was to refit the vessel to create a no nonsense, functional and highly efficient fishing machine. The tremendously experienced owners wanted a vessel that could be easily serviced and maintained, performed well in every condition, and could house anglers comfortably for tournament fishing endeavors. Recently a Los Suenos Triple Crown winner, the vessel’s performance is unparalleled and she maintains a world class pedigree reputation. Below are the details of the extensive refit performed in 2015.
The refit began by stripping the vessel of all fittings, through hulls, all mechanical systems and engines and fuel systems. Furthermore, all decks, bulkheads, stringers, the transom, flybridge and helm were also removed. The interior of the hull was ground back to bare planking and the exterior bottom of the hull was tripped back to bare fiberglass. All of the through hull fittings, raw water discharges, exhaust system, and even the shaft logs were removed. Any evidence of rot or even suspected rot was removed and the affected areas were rebuilt and reglassed. The keel was cut off and faired into the hull.
The renewal of the vessel began by fiberglassing the bottom of the boat with three layers of 1708 and building a new transom out of okoume plywood and two inches of divinycell foam and three layers of glass inside and out. Moving into the interior of the hull, the entire vessel was reinforced. Every side and bottom frame were fitted with new knees, sistered with an additional layer of plywood and then wrapped in a layer of 1708. After, the entire bottom was planked over with a layer of plywood in between the frames and a layer of fiberglass was added. New laminate stringers built out of layers of clear douglas fir and plywood were constructed throughout the vessel. New bulkheads build of a sandwich of divinycell and okoume plywood encapsulated in fiberglass were built and installed.
The new decks were built out of a combination of nida core honeycomb, fiberglass, and marine plywood. New composite engine room deck supports were built out of fiberglass I beams.
The salon is appointed with booked matched teak cabinetry and padded panels with matching VAN Brunt sofas on each side. There is a huge amount of storage below each sofa. The galley has two sets of sub zero refrigerator drawers. A microwave and stainless sink finish the galley. A 38” LCD TV sits across from the galley flush fit into the teak cabinetry.
Forward, just down the companionway, houses two 12 cu ft freezers and rod and reel storage in teak lockers. Ahead of this area are four berths with storage below each of the bottom bunks. The forward head has a massive shower and a 24 volt master flush head.
The new flybridge and helm were built and widened from the original structure. A simple yet functional center helm, accessible from the front so there is more room to work on systems, was implemented.
The bridge has a Palm Beach Towers hardtop and a release helm chair. The electronics include Garmin 8215 displays, Standard Horizon VHFs, a FLIR System and three engine room cameras and a salon camera. There are gauges for the water tank as well as the forward fuel tank.
The cockpit has 24 volt receptacles for LP reels. The Mezzanine houses upper ice storage and bait trays to starboard and drink storage to port. The floor of the cockpit has a large in deck ice dump.
