it was hard work but most enjoyable at the same time,
best thing is that in this current climate you can put a fare package together for very little money,

still got to sort the electrics out correctly and clean the internal fuel tank, and re string the life lines appart from that its getting a good thrashing till the winter where upon the console will be changed

How do you find the steering position on that? People generally mount the steering wheel lower down where you've got that fishfinder. I ended up moving the throttle to the right hand side of that bit on a bracket as it was really uncomfortable further up.

evening Tim,
highly recomend that you reposition as i have done,
in the chop the lower steering is terrible and very uncomfortable when standing,
the top part of the consol will need strengthening to suit though, i put 4 layers of glass and a 3mm ali plate in position, just to be safe, there after i made an ali wedge stand of bracket for controls, was my first outing yesterday and had no problems with the set up at all,

a very good judgement or pure luck on my behalf
