In the depth of winter I decided that the original Pacific 22 Console had to go. It suited the RN but not me. Ocean ribs supplied a new one for £400 so these are the pics of the change.
Time taken so far, god only knows but every weekend since the end of Jan. The console took 3 weeks to fit out including extra re-inforcing behind the dash since the Halmatic instruments live in a big Al box that is quite heavy and requires a big cut out. Same for the GPS which will be permanently fitted. A dry storeage box was glassed in to the side of the console in the shape of a wahsing up bowl, infact that is what it is. It ought to be waterproof then. including the deck I it has taken 30m of 450g CSM at 30L of resin, somewhere. Next the console needs fitting with the assistance of my able helper.
Target for completion is the end of Easter and there is a lot of wiring to sort too.
