And finally another showing how it all looks to-date (nav-lights, VHF aeriel...).

The plan now will be to fit the two additional twin jockey seats in the rear of the boat and to fit the modified backrest for the driver tommorow evening.

I'll then be taking Friday afternoon off to get the running-in out of the way.

Having now read the manual this is 1hr of 3000-4500rpm changing revs every 2mins and not idling for more than 10.

For the next 3 hours this is the same but changing revs every 10 mins.

Then... let rip! The engine over-oils for a total of about 10 hours.

Rather good news is that "short bursts of full throttle for periods of 10 seconds are acceptabe during running-in"

There are a number of outctanding issues like inter-electrionics communications and a few bits nor sourced yet (Spot light, missing switch etc.) but they'll all fall into place soon

Cracking pics Daniel - good luck on Friday

That hydraulic ram setup looks the same if not identical to the one on the back of my boat..... I am well impressed with it, since there are no moving pipes.

Can I ask where you got those switches for the nav lights etc.. from? - I am looking for some more switches for my boat at the mo, and using normal toggle switches isn't really ideal.

-Alex

Too late now I realise but, for the future, welding cable is good. Oil, fuel and abrasion resistant, contains many small diameter conductors so it's nice and flexible, you can buy it off the roll and there is a selection of sizes from puny to huge.

You can order inline but you need to scribble the part no's down and then fill-in the on-line form.

The range is great, every type of switch, but thety are about 10 each! They also do a nice modular surround for the swicthes which they clip into.

You have just reminded me that i took this pic of the inside of the console during wiring. I'm using an automotive blade fusebox and two busbars from www.indexmarine.co.uk.

Daniel,

looks neat, well done. Just wish some of the manufacturers could wire boats up like this. It will mean less likely of problems at sea and if you do have one easier to sort.

Pete
