Update

Time to update this thread, I took one of the tubes down to Paul Tilley a couple of weeks ago so that Paul can make the tubes up ready for when I take the RIB down to him in the next couple of weeks.
The new fuel tanks were installed a few weeks ago, the approximate capacity of the forward tank is 120 ltr and 110 ltr in the stern tank.
As my pet hate is tight cable ducts I have installed two master ducts one on either side of tanks plus separate ducts for the each fuel pipes and a small duct from each jockey seat to the console for the cables for the low level deck lighting.
The new deck ply was ordered 3 weeks ago but has not arrived yet, as it is 15mm thick it is not a standard size so is taking time to get in, they have promised delivery middle to end of this week. As soon as the deck is installed I can get the underdeck void foamed, the console and jockeys glassed in and the deck flowcoated.

Work is going well at last, the new ply deck is in and the underdeck has been re-foamed, it was very satisfying mixing the 2 parts of the foam together and pouring it in to the access holes then waiting till it started to expand and fill the underdeck voids and appear out of one vent hole after another.
Today we laid glass fibre over the new ply and and deck, we were hoping to do the flow coating as well but rain stopped play so thats tomorrows job.

The deck is finished, the new deck glassed in and the inside flowcoated. Spent yesterday checking the trailer over and getting her securly strapped down. She is very bow heavy on the trailer at the moment as can be seen in the second pic, I can hardly lift the nose but that should be sorted when the engine goes on. Left the yard just before 10pm last night and headed for Paul Tilley's in Devon arrived there at 2:30 this morning, had a few hours sleep in the back of the Frontera. So the next time I see her in just over a weeks time she will have her nice new tubes on.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. How many of us were debating buying that Osprey?

Cheers guys, must admit it has taken a lot longer than I planned due to other commitments but really pleased with her, roll on the 2 Sept when I collect her from Paul Tilley, then its straight up to Mobile Marine to have the opti bolted on, then I have 2 weeks to get the console, jockeys glassed in and all the wiring and controls installed ready for the engine to be PDI on the 17 Sept Going to try and persuade the local leisure park to let me use there ski lake to run the engine in THEN ITS PLAYTIME

You guys amaze me... I installed a gimballed drink-holder one time and was impressed with my abilities! Well-done!
