Yet another 380 .....

Picked up the latest addition to the fleet last night.....'Red Streak'

Painting the new garage was delayed in order to pump it up. Luckily I stuck some old carpet down in there yesterday so it all nice and cosy with less dust of the floor (still need a sofa, 60 inch LCD and a beer fridge though) And I think I can get Streaker and the Bombard in at the same time.

All just needs a good clean really.As always need the seat, bow bag etc. The first question how doea the seat attach ? From the pics it looks like coach bolts through the eyes and wingnut underneath but i cant find one with enough detail? If any one can post a pic of the detail it would help greatly.

I have aquired some ply so if anyone can tell me how wide the seats are too? I can make one up and spray it black to match. (Nasher when I do it I'll do another too)

Really want to get the bow bag sorted for all the junk it'll need to carry for diving.

And of course looking for a decent engine ( hens teeth time) and maybe a bunk trailer or wheels - a trailer may be cheaper ......

General pics show it as is with my Suz on for the hell of it ( if anyone wants to buy it it has to go ..I'm open to offers..)

Any advice, parts, humorous abuse or comments welcome..

Pete

Hi Pete.

Im looking at getting a Bombard 380, they are supposed to handle incredibly well in the rough stuff with the deep V. Do you mind if I ask how much you paid for it? They seem to go for around 400 - 600

It has a couple of fixed countersunk bolts at each end, with spin on nut things underneath. That's why I was waiting until I could grab a picture rather than describing it! I'll try to dig it out later today.

Many thanks from all of us who've recently brought cheap B380s that have lost their seats
