Really don't know - waiting for some guages to be fitted and a few other bits and bobs - also so much depends on weather and my workload - any time in next 2 weeks.

feel free to call me on the pm number

cheers
How come there's a bit of seat belt from an MG Metro in that console?

The maiden voyage - what a good idea! perhaps a rib flotilla could be organised to greet and escort you through the solent aka the Canberra returning from the Falklands...

I agree Roden, the build up and anticipation generated by these two new arrivals has been so great that the event should, perhaps be recognised by the Ribnet fraternity. Any suggestions anyone?

Re: meeting of new owners

Perhaps a title for this potentially legendary event: " Hugh and Codprawn" Twin Titans Of The Tubes! or this one: "Hugh and Cod" Finally Off The Old Sod!
Personally I would love to see photos of this occasion up on this forum as
I have followed both threads regarding these boats and personalities with interest and some amusement. You can see both are excited about their new toys!

Ahhh Alice, it is a restraint strap to stop the console openeing too far onto the speakers, i will be fitting gas struts at some stage once i source some good ones at the right price. i chose a red one so it stands out, it does the job just nicely for the time being.

Alice Rodan and Pathalla

what a fun idea indeed, i am always up for meeting new folks but so far Codders has kept away from civilisation and the human rib race so not sure he would be keen on meeting folks or a crowd.......but you never know...he now potentially owns a rib....so you never know...so cods what do ya say?

So what did you do with the rest of the Metro? Give it to Debs ?!

a question for the sikaflex experts

Lady Alice, no it was not an MG metro that donated the strap but was a lorry strap effort i purchased and the strap was about 100yds long!

A question for those in the know

i have this evening sikoflexed my elephant trunks onto the pipe thru the transom, i roughed up the surface and the elephant trunking in hypalon was a really nice snug fit. do you think it will be enough just to have the sikoflex joining the two or will i need to fit a jubilee clip as well.

the plastic pipe protrouded about 4-5 inchs or so from the transom, and i sikaflexed the hypalon to it for this entire length, i reckon it will be fine with out a jubilee clip but wanted to get others opinions.

the hypalon was formed in a sausage and was a really tight fit on the pipe

a pic below

also if anyone has to cut the bnc connector off their garmin then maplin do a nice 50ohm crimp bnc connector to replace it, you just need the special tool to fit it, but works a treat with a bit of heatshrink over it

just finished for the evening out there as its damn cold now
