    Reviving Pachanga
    A boater in Norway restores a 1988 Sea Ray to its original glory

    Erik Paulsen lives in Bergen, Norway, where his love for the sea extends to both work and play. During the day, Erik works as the Director for Business Development at Sea-Cargo, a leading shipping & logistics company; at night, you’ll find him tucked away in his boathouse, restoring old Sea Ray treasures. His latest project: the transformation of an ’88 Pachanga.
    It was 1988 when Erik was first captivated by the maneuverability of Sea Ray’s Pachanga. “One of my neighbors owned a dealership that sold Sea Ray boats,” Erik recalls, “and he invited me to ride on the 22-foot and 32-foot Pachangas he had in stock. I couldn’t afford to buy one at that time, but I never forgot the way they behaved in the water and waves, taking 90-degree turns so smoothly.”
    It took a few years, but in 1996 Erik and his wife, Synnove, finally purchased their very own Sea Ray Pachanga. They enjoyed the boat together for three wonderful wind-blown years until the birth of their first daughter, when they decided the Pachanga was too speedy for a newborn. So they switched from exclusive speed to luxury comfort and purchased a Sea Ray Sundancer.
    But the Pachanga memories lingered and around the time his daughter turned fifteen, Erik decided it was time to have a Pachanga back in the lineup. He first purchased a 22 footer and spent months restoring it, only to realize it was a little smaller than what he and his family were looking for. So he sold the boat, newly in mint condition, and went searching for a 32 foot Pachanga instead.
    The process proved to be harder than anticipated. Erik needed a boat that not only possessed the original gelcoat but that was also CE approved, due to Norway’s strict import regulations. It took a lot of searching, but finally Erik found an ’88 Pachanga, just like his first boat back in 1996, with an owner on the Island of Menorca, Spain. It was clear the 32 Pachanga would need some love, but, trusting in the quality he had seen in Sea Ray boats, Erik purchased the boat and had it shipped to his boathouse in Norway to begin its restoration.
    Upon the Pachanga’s arrival it became clear that restoration was not going to be an easy task. The boat was in less-than-optimal shape, with a corroded engine, an unusable stern drive, busted upholstery and dull, worn-down surface paint. But this was familiar territory for Erik, so with a tinge of nostalgia and a hopeful spirit, he grabbed his sander and polish and went to work.
    Several months of after-hours labor later, Erik was able to restore the boat to nearly new-looking condition with its original pristine gelcoat finish. He completely replaced the sterndrive and engine. He had the upholstery redone to resemble the original seating down to the details, including sewing the Pachanga name into the rear seat. And he restored all the original paint, which was quite a slow and arduous process. Finally, with a lot of tender love and care, Erik once again had that new old ’88 Pachanga that had captivated him all those years ago.
    “There is nothing like the quality of a Sea Ray,” Erik says. “Whenever we bring the boat out on the water, everyone is very interested to have a look. They cannot believe the way an old boat can look so new. But that is the thing about Sea Rays: If you put in the care, they will last a lifetime.”
