If humber state it's a 6 mtr it will be, I was under the impression the extra build up on transom as yours was on the 5.8 early 90's hull

Thanks everyone for your support and advice so far as I do appreciate it. I now have plans to tackle the punctures and dodgy valves at the weekend.

Thinking ahead a little bit - Does anybody know where I can get a manual for the outboard engine (1989 Evinrude VRO 150Hp) as I wouldn't mind trying to get a going for a short while. I have looked on the web and have not found anything so far

Been busy but time for an update folks!!!

1.) Engine has been removed and there is holes everywhere (1st photo) Don't ask how we got the big old beast off as that's another story.

2.) Transom holes all filled with wooden dowels and chopped strand. Transom then ground and smoothed out flat.

3.) Deck ground out with grinder and all holes sifllexed in and fibreglassed over to ensure a good seal (photo 2). The grinding was a dirty job as there was dust everywhere and took 3 of us 3 hours to clean up. Next time I will be grinding outside!!

4.) Bow / anchor storage cut and fibre glassed onto deck (sorry Ed stole another one of your ideas!!) (photo 3)

5.) Bow, transom and deck sides flow coated (photos 4 and 5). This was difficult and a bit disheartening as the finish close up is not that great. Looks like I will be repainting in some localised areas to get a better finish!!

Back to work tomorrow but not bad for a weeks work!!

Next up jobs

1.) Paint deck floor in the next week with black non-slip paint. Looking at the last photo there is spillage of my flow coat on the deck area will this need to be ground down or will the non-slip paint hide this? (photo 1)

2.) Turn boat upside down on grass to polish (G3) and acetone hull and then fill and paint scratches / gouges

3.) With boat off the trailer, service rollers on trailer

4.) Put boat in the water to test for leaks

5.) Look for an engine and running gear

Thanks

Gareth

Ok, another update for you all with the last 2 weeks work

Boat was removed from trailer and was flipped upside down to find various scratches / gouges, poor previous repairs and black rubber roller marks

To tackle this the following was carried out!

1.) Hull wiped cleaned with acetone
2.) Hull polished using G3 rubbing compound and buffer
3.) Bad gouges through gel coat and poor previous repairs prepared and then filled
4.) Repair areas then masked and painted with a close paint match (not repainting the whole hull as I know I just won't get a satisfactory finish)
5.) Last photo shows afterwards
