Done the floor today, repaired a section that was worn away near to where it bolts down at the bow and re glued two places underneath where the slats fit in.

Then a good clean and a polish, sorted

Before and after pics....

After a lot of cleaning using various methods I conditioned it with Ribshop's conditioner.

But if you can't get it over there then try on a small area some car bumper (fender) gel, you know the stuff that makes old black plastic bumpers look new again, but try on a small area first on the keel, you don't want it greasy and slimy, just something that will soak into the hypalon rather than sit on the surface

I'll hopefully get some time next week to take a look at it, I reckon it will need some more support at the front end...
I like it. Should give you plenty of ground clearance for hauling over backroads and rough launching spots. What vehicle will you be using to tow it (please tell me a Defender 110 )?

A D2 in black! Looked at several trailers but the double jetski trailers allow the bunks to be fitted over the mudguards

Would love a 90 or 110

Don't everyone have Defenders in Britain?

I will be towing my FC-470 behind my D90.
