Wiring

Pulled out engine smart craft wiring and it looks like we have had a DIYer with Halford connectors splicing at every joint. This has been ripped out and replaced with proper crimp connectors and then sealed with glue lined heat shrink connectors.

Also 6 panel switch board arrived which is supposed to be IP66 marine proof and weather proof but wasn't too impressed with the connectors on the back of them. So again these connectors have now been sealed with glue lined heat shrink.

Big plans for the coming bank holiday weekend (while I'm sure you will all be out enjoying yourselves on water) as I want to get fuel tank secured to the deck, trunking done, wiring done and maybe console screwed down - but again this could be a bit optimistic

Who's hit the fast forward button

Ok, I should have taken more photos of progress but I just wanted to get the boat finished and on the water this summer. In other words there are jobs that need finishing off / tidying up and they will be done in the winter! However the big milestone today was the boat was on the water and floats with no major issues. The only thing that didn't work was the sonar as it stated it was 5.6m deep constantly!!!

Next up jobs

1.) Clean the toobs again (acetone)
2.) The rubber above the rubber strake see last 2 x photos has worn and there is no definite line. So was thinking about using tube paint and masking off but open for suggestions?
3.) Orange shoe polish / dye to bring up tubes to a nice finish! As per Nugent's suggestion
4.) Sort out sonar to work with brand new garmin 551S. Does it need configuring?
5.) Clean up the binliner and sell it!

Super job

All round excellent first project Woody and I note that Edd's been working his magic for you too. He did a great job on my A frame a couple of weeks ago.

I also see that you live oooop north, not a million miles from me, so look forward to seeing you out on the Mersey/Menai next year on our shiny refurbs
