pics of my S4-00 as I bought it
Here are some pics I took of my S4-00 as I bought it.
I think the first job is a good cleaning with some cheap washing up sponges and plently of Acetone as I managed to find some of the original red after a 5 minute clean in one area.
All the valves are in great condition with no leakage & the only repair required is about an inch long on the right hand side front section. I'm impressed by this as I was told it had a massive hole in it which I couldn't miss. I was working on the basis that if the boat was dead I would have plenty of patch material but it's not too bad.
Strangely enough when I got it I couldn't believe the weight, until I found out how much water was in the keel due to it being left outside with the valve open.
Realistically, it could do with a brand new transom but as it's not totally gone I might dry it, drill into it & fill it with resin. This depends on time available & the mood I'm in at the time.
Does anyone fancy measuring their floorboards & taking some pictures as it will save me a lot of work making templates?
When I get it clean, sometime during spring, I'll post some more pictures.
