Lots of painstaking work with a scalpal as the osprey logo is quite intricate.
oh and by the way i have now added the toes to the top osprey as had forgot to cut them out until i gave them a once over admiring my handy work after 6 beers

however the console is quite well sealed so it wont be getting saltwater splashed over the bits. every single item is sealed in with marine sealant and seals so i think it will be pretty good although not airtight. Its amazing where salt water and salt air can get so not fooled in the slightest.
I always find that a dab of vasseline or waterproof grease on any exposed metal electrical contacts is all that is required.

have used liquid tape on exposed metal connections as that seems to do a nice job

travelled down to ribcraft to see the boat with the tubes on, they are looking good and Ribcraft have done a superb job.

we went thru where the rope holders will be situated and the wear patchs

where the osprey lables will go etc

Picked up the upholstery and boy what an amazing job they did, i created my own designs and sizes and depths and every looks superb and very high quality finish, attached is a pic of the rear bench seat that i can interchange with two pod seats due to a captive nut bolt pattern in the floor for flexibility.

I have not yet fastened the seat to the base yet so it is sitting a bit proud, also the swing back is not fitted yet but it gives the general impression

i wonder how the white material will hold up with fish blood everywhere!!

i used master trim for the work and they have done me very proud and were very very competitive.........good on ya Loui...

this is one of the 4 jockey seats i have. the stainless is also superb, a nice job done by marine fabrications, the pinstriping is in ocean blue to match the tubes colours

well i pick it up from Ribcraft tomorrow morning as the tubes will all be finished etc, then i need to fit all the stainless and upholstery, put fuel in, finish a few electrical jobs as i need to fit the aframe and all the electrics hanging off of it.

I have a few finishing off jobs like fitting the new steering pipework as the previous was too short.
so i will have it all done in the next couple of weeks, then pdi on the engine and survey and complete.

its all down to me really getting the time to finish it all off
