Delta 5.5 Winter Project

Attached are a few pictures of the Delta project this winter. The actual hull, deck and tubes were excellent with no patches however, the joining tapes between the tubes and hull were a little tattered and needed replaced. The Console was offset which i didnít particularly like it was also to far back and hence I began the process to relocate it and add new seating pods. Pic below sho old tapes and their replacement tapes and the console being removed!

Delta 5.5 Winter Project

Console removed stripped and being prepared for a re-spray. The deck was also cleaned to begin Fiberglasing the void left by the console; in essence levelling the deck up again as the new console location was going to slightly overlap the original position. I wasnít sure what I would find below the console but testament to Delta's build quality the deck was perfect! Cleaning back the anti slip and gel coat to ensure good adhesion of the new console and extra pods was quite the job; with course sanding paper barely scratching the surface. In the end it took the 4" angle grinder to make an impression and even then it was heavy going!!

Delta 5.5 Winter Project

The pictures below show the new tapes as fitted courtesy of Redbay (thanks to Gary & Tom) with the rest of rest of the refurbishment and service being a home production. The trailer also received similar treatment with new bearings etc and a few new rollers yet to be fitted.

The helm and steering cables are all new as are the control cables (all Teleflex); with extreme cables used for the control and what a difference they make. The engine has also had a full service to include a water pump kit, new thermostat, and a trim tilt sender unit.

I also need to fiinish off the deck (paint or flow coat) and fit the additional seat pods!!

Thanks for positive comments and the grab handles should help my kids hang on and if I could have got my hands on a couple of original Delta backrests as fitted to the console, I would swap them for the stainless ones as i think it would tie it all together (maybe I'm being to fussy).

Cheers!

Delta Refurb continued

Console glassed in, seat pods fitted and the deck flowcoated. Pictures taken following my first run out (some water droplets in the pictures) she ran perfect and pity I forgot the camera!
