Just wondering if there are any winter projects in the works?

My self I plan to repaint and reseal the hull and possibly change out my console and bench seat.

On another note what do people think about the Brig 500L? I have searched the forum but really no good feedback on them.

There is a dealer out of Cali that can have one shipped to me for $8900.00 with the bench seat, console/seat and the navigational arch.

Thoughts? Photos? Experience with the hull design?

Thanks,

John

I finally decided to strip out the interior of my Explorer 600 and do a sport offshore set up. My Yam 120 is going in my shop for the winter and getting done over completely even though it looks and runs like new inside out. Lot's of machine shop time coming ahead this winter for the power head.

The center console, seating and rigging I fabricate all myself as well. Just put the boat away 2 weeks ago and already missing it.

New project...

Photos below of the SR5.4 I recently bought for £120!
All it came as was a hull, no trailer, console engine a frame or out else like that.

Should keep me entertained for a while.

My main concern is reinforcing the transom with proper knuckles like most RIBs have.

Yeh might fit some of them as well, I knew it started with "kn". Was close though!

Seariders don't need them-unless you're planning to add knees instead of the support struts that should be there.

Don't think mine came with any, I'd prefer two solid bits of fibreglass anyway seen as though most of the boat needs doing.

I want to get the sponsons cleaned up to remove all of the oxidation and dead pigment. I was thinking about using those Mr. Clean magic erasers and then saturating the sponsons with 303. The boat takes a beating from the sun here in FL and the cover is too worn out to do much good. The fiberglass needs to be worked on too. I can't complain too much since it is the original tube set (1998).

Ex Navy 19' Nautica refit. The boat is gray tubes on gray hull and deck. The new console and Light arch/ leaning seat will be in black with all new electronics, lights and controles...

I'll get some before and after pictures...


has anyone cut the deck out of a 19' Nautica to replace the fuel tank? I have a leak and it's not the lines.
