BananaSPLIT

As some of you may know Ribex was not too good for us (You dried out yet Tim) and the boat developed a split in the hull. Thanks to a good friend in Cowes we got pulled out and put in a shed to make emergency repairs to get us back to Drivers Warf (Thanks again Tony. He also owns a pub there, so if you go to The Union Inn Cowes say HI).

Back at the secret HQ and it's time for real repairs so I thought I'd post some pics.


1. Cut through the top layer of matt in the sandwich and remove a section big enough to repair the outer mats from the inside.

2. then remove the 1/2" foam core to expose the outer mats(the orange layer is the bonding paste.)this was taken half way through.

3. it's easy to mend the out side using levitation taugh by budist monks, failing that level of concentration use a modified car lift. How many parts for the new leisure boat can you spot?

4. the split runs along the out board edge about 2" in and about 18" long.

(ok I got the pics loaded the wrong way round. Twit.)

Will post more as work progreses.

No she was on the boat lift to inspect the leak, very nice of them to let us use it I thought.
She is a light boat and can handle heavy seas at speed. But is no good on an ill fitting trailer.
