Small update, transom is almost finished, all sanded and sealed on top with a coat of resin, this will be capped with a stainless capping plate, tubes also re attatched...




The spray deck bit at the front has been taken off...



Look at the difference in colour, any ideas of how to try and blend the two colours together and get rid of glue residue?...



Need to try and clean this stuff off, tried TFR with a green scourer but its almost welded on, any tips?...

Anyone recognise this reg mark?...

Do the old toobs hold the air ? If so, pretty amazing !

Congratulations to the professional work with the transom.

Based on where you bought the boat, its likely to be the West Riding Sailing Club based on Wintersett Resevoir near Wakefield. I only sailed there once during the 80's but i'm sure they had searider safety boats (Mind you all sailing clubs had seariders during the 70's and 80's !)

yes your Merc 80 is measured at the flywheel, in 1984 the Merc 80hp became a Merc 75hp ( measured at prop )

the decals on your engine look like 1979 decals

My mistake, it is a 79.

Its a crap day here today so I spent some time in the workshop.

A quick mock up to check dimensions, might run a patent on the idea!!...



Plan finalised and jigsaw dug out...









The middle panel will house the tacho, speedo, battery voltage and water pressure. The angle the panel is helps the gauges to be readable whether you are sitting or standing.

New stays made up and test fitted...



Tube trims glued back into place, the 2 pack Hypalon glue is REALLY strong!..




Console glassed up, this will have the sides cut out of it so it becomes more of a "wash through" console instead of being water tight, itl take a couple of Barrus tanks with a few inches to spare...





Its going to get a final cloth and a couple of resin coats after we have cut out the sides, this be sanded then flow coated.

A bit of a leap forward over the last couple of days.

Flange glassed in to the console for attatching it to the deck....




First coat on console before a mock up of instruments, control box and wheel, hatch also cut out....





Then DISASTER!! I was using the tractor to fill up our Biomass heating system and when reversing it back into the shed and lowering the bucket a hose blew and sprayed the still tacky console with hydraulic fluid!! Gutted!

On a brighter note (much brighter) we managed to get a coat of flowcoat on the deck and transom....





Most of the parts are here for putting it all back together, just waiting on a steering cable.

Updates when the console is in.
