TOP Cat, the return. Thanks Henshaw and Sanders

With artificially over inflated prices for the next boat in my market and a couple of silly offers for the old girl, I decided it was time to show her some love.

ALthough heavily denied Scorpions seem to suffer with aged tubes, mine having lived on the water with no overall cover all its life wa no excpetio

Prices to tart the old tubes up varied and were not a guarantee the tubes would look pucker. The existing tubes were delayering and looked like an OAPs skin. probabably due to excess weather exposure and and maybe an incident with highways agency a couple of years ago.... SO i bit the bullet.

Thanks to Chris at Henhaws and Kev. They had the chance to make a huge amount of money out of me but instead did everything in their power to make sure I got the tubes i wanted at a fair price. Entirely proffesional and spoon fed me the whole way explaining every aspect and option and staying open on special occasions JUST for me.

now the colours dont match it was off to sanders sails in Lymington..... New seats and foam, some additional cushioning to what Scorpion install and more bum space created to allow a proper sitting position. Seats not all fitted at this stage. New fixings for rear seat as it used to jump overboard with nobody sat on it... STUNNING STUNNING craftsmanship from Sanders
