Very close now, ran it up in the test bin yesterday afternoon with no problems.

Hoping for saturday afternoon, but it won't be quite finished. The A-frame is being modified and probably won't be back by then, may test it without.

Excellent project diary. Pics were great, looks like a new boat. Decided to postpone my refurb attempt until end of season as the boat would probably end up out of the water for the whole summer!
Did you encounter any serious problems during your refurb? Seems like a serious amount of man hours and labour!

Enjoy your NEW boat.

No serious problems other than a bodged repair on the hull that had to be redone and not having enough time, out in the garage til 3am on occasion. The non stop bills, changing my mind etc etc....

The Switch gear is industrial IP67 made by MOELLER. They are obselete now but the new range is called RMQ titan and is very similar and available at RS. They are very tough and brilliant as they fit in a 22mm round hole, you can choose wether they are rotary, latched, momentary, push button, key operated, black or silver bezel etc. You can fit up to 3 normally open, normally closed or a combination of both types of contact block on the back (I have two, one in use and one spare) and you can get legend pates for them aswell. Mine are fused seperately using an automotive 5 way fuse box.

I made the stainless plate myself, it's a bit of 316 plate cut from an old control panel and ploished up a bit.

hope this helps
