Just reading your post and just wanted to say what a good job you've made of it ,
I have completed many similar projects some where my friends thought I was mad, Don't you find for what it all costs ( the true value not the price you told the wife ) it would be cheaper to buy a new one.

Hi,
No, the boat and trailer as in the last pic owes me about half the cost of a new 4m PVC boat
without a trailer.
Obviously there's a few evenings work gone into it but i enjoy that.

Well, the Mrs took it out for it's maiden voyage with a 4hp Mariner 4 stroke we had.
Not happy ! she came back pleading for a bigger 2 stroke.
After a bit of searching i found a nice 15 Merc, she's pleased with that, especially as it's colour matched to the tubes !

The boat's back where it belongs now, she may need to carry a repair kit though.
Roll on summer.
