Agreed nice job, just one question though, what did it cost to use epoxy resin and fibre glass in the dinning room

Just a thought, Rogue Wave could you enquire the going rate from Brit for this sort of project perhaps we could send her to Majorca for a week ?

Great looking job! You've done a similar kind of thing to me, although you've actually managed to finish yours!

Lets see some pics of the finished boat!

Ask for my wife's help in holding things in place whilst cable tied the basic structure and she said it was to cold, so she said do it in the dining room, making sure we had good ventalation, central heating on but some doors and windows open, 2 big dust sheets, big sheet of MDF and that was our work service for 3 weeks, wife's idea, quite lucky I suppose.

She started grumbling in 2nd week though, but to late then.

Narcosis Help

You have done a great job, I also have bought an MOD 5.4. I am having great difficulty removing all the raised deck area for the console and fuel tanks.

Did you sand it all down??? did you use any other tools, mines got the non slip deck added its eating my sanding paper and costing.

HELP

Ian,

I've been looking at that area on the searider and If I was to do it I would be tempted to buy a prefabricated consol (I can't make one), and cut out the shape of the floor at each end of the consol to make it sit flat.

As Roguewave said Avon didn't make that good a job of the inside of Navy Seariders.

They do make some good ones though, I just can't find where to get them, They have two individual seats lots of hatches and hydraulic steering. Its a little secret I want to keep to myself until I get my next boat sorted.

Might be of use to someone-there's an a-frame and seat from a 5.4 on ebay at the mo.
