I have been lurking on the site for some time and it looks like I have taken some inspiration from some of the project blogs as I have taken the plunge myself to go ahead with my 1st rib project. I am relatively new to boating as purchased my first boat (a bayliner - I know its a mistake) in the summer of 2012 after I had completed my PB level 2 in 05/12. Anyway that's enough of me for now here is the boats specs!
1996 6m Humber destroyer
1989 Evinrude V6 VRO 150HP (actually runs but yet to do a compression test but doesn't appear to rattle) - The plan is to sell bayliner the end of summer 2013 to pay for a replacement engine such as 150 Opti!
Running gear - very minimal as VRO not connected to engine (maybe a good thing as I may want to go down the pre-mix route), stainless steel A Frame, teleflex steering which is seized, petrol tank but no fuel lines, rev counter which doesn't work.
Centre console - Looks like its been caught in the cross fire some where and foam seat needs re-covering. I have a plan to redo layout of the boat with a different console and jockey seats.
Roller Hallmark Trailer - Mudguards need replacing, tyres don't hold air, coupling damper needs to be replaced and the wheel bearings are shot as it was long 30mph journey home listening to the droning noise of bearings about to collapse
Anyway the post would be worthless without PICS
