Right thats the whole lot out just the wiring to do, my brothers an auto electrician so that should be a fun job for him!! Just wondered if you had any more pictures of your rib would be good to have some kind of template to run 2..... started cleaning a small patch of the tubes and they arnt coming up 2 bad so this could be a good thing. Think i may locate the batteries in the console as there is tons of space in there or even locate them under one of the two rear jockey seats. looking at sanding the console down at the same time and redoing all of the paintwork. Thanks for all your help Nasher may see you out on the water next year....

There are a couple on www.nashersworld.com but I have quite a few otherwise.

Let me know if you need anything particular.

In my limited experience, and it may be different for petrol, the fuel breathers are rarely large enough to deal with fuelling full bore from a proper fuel pump. My advice would be to see what is supplied/recommended with the underdeck tank, and then double it, and if there is room, double it again. There needs to be enough capacity for air to escape as fast as you put the fuel in.

Otherwise, you will be sitting on the fuel barge dribbling fuel in, with a huge queue of boats behind you!

Have fun,

t

PS. And if you can get it so that you have a dipstick, instead of/as well as, a fuel gauge even better!

If you can use a dipstick then great, fuel gauges on boats are a liability. We are all used to cars, if it says 1/2 a tank then that is what you have, on boats they lie...

Dipping a tank is a pain but accurate, it is what the RNLI do on the Atlantics and then approximately predict their consumption using engine RPM. My approach is far more basic, top the tanks off before each trip, plus carry a 20lt reserve, and a aux 5 hp outboard. And yes, I even with that lot I have run out of fuel once...

If you are involved in rescue work, then I'd work out what your consumption/range is at a range of speeds and then see what damage towing will do to it. Quite alot I suspect.

Good luck,

t
