Didn't get a great deal done today, it's been p***ing down all day and had to do battle with another 10,000 screws
I did get the tubes off though, and the grp moulding that the tubes sit on, so the rest of the deck is now ready to come off. Thats going to be the biggest challenge so far, all the screws are hidden under the Treadmaster which is stuck on good and proper. Looks like I'm going to have to use a crowbar etc to break up the deck piece by piece and get the screws out after
I knocked up a frame out of some angle iron and timber to support the tubes evenly while I forklifted them off. Worked really well and much easier than trying to organise 10 guys to try and manually lift them.
At least with the tubes now off the boat it's a heck of a lot easier to work on!
