Tornado 4.8m Refurb

I am starting to refurb my Tornado over the winter. Extra seats, paint the hull and deck white, new electrical system, more instruments etc. Managed to make a start this week. I had it re-tubed in 2001 and always thought it looked a bit odd with blue tubes, orange deck grey hull etc.
Just for those that are interested I will post the progress and pictures on here.

Yup - nice and bright - mates said I was mad to get a blue RIB - wouldn't stand out enough at sea and yet even some orange RIBs look dull next to mine.

yep put it on with varnish rollers not foam ones they disintigrate and leave foam in your finish.

put a coat on then go back after 10 mins and go over again to get a better finish. when it drys its quite flat but just lightly sand back then polish up! good luck
