Osprey Sea Harrier Project

Summer is coming so I wont have much time for ribbing, so the next best thing is to start a rib project Collected this little lady on Sunday, Osprey Sea Harrier 6.4 with a 115hp yamaha on the back.
Will start by removing the engine and console then roll her over and paint her bottom, when thats done she can go back on her trailer and have the tubes removed ready for a new set to be fitted.

If I were you, I'd consider re-positioning the control box

That's state of the fart ASS controled fly by fire

As you come off a wave it automaticly throttles down. When you land, you shoot off again (sometimes in reverse).

If you're getting new tubes I would recommend removing the old ones before flipping the boat and painting it. It means you can access all areas more easily for repairs / filling etc.

Seems like a good idea to me, as the area where the tubes were attached will have to be prepared for the new ones anyway, so no additional work, just a different order.

I am planning to leave the tubes on until it is flipped back to protect the hull edges, and it will also ensure that when I paint the hull I will not get any on the area where the new tubes will need to be attached.
