Coming together, starts and runs well - control box all sorted and electrics, think managed to source some control cables bow - Managed to knock up a control box bracket from some left over s/steel I found - its all about having access to some fantastic equipment and tools at my local boating club

I'd be interested in the a frame if you decide to sell it?

Looks like a good clean hull Olly, tubes should come up well with a good scrub, have you tried anything on them yet?

Is that an attempt by a previous owner to raise the console cover with wood, if so are you going to leave it like that?

thanks murph, yes the hull is in superb order, much better than my other one - I've only tried a partial mix of traffic film remover, warm water and a sponge, that got a lot off green scum off tubes, anything you recommended as parts have gone kind of mouldy - and few splashes of paint here and there

Yes I'll probably keep in slightly raised as the seat base is also

Maybe a stronger mix of traffic film remover, but I wouldnt leave it on for long as you know its strong stuff. What about scotch pads for cleaning the rubbing strakes?

The low console height would be my only gripe about the searider, I'd like to try and raise my own aswell.

Any luck with a console cover?

I'd be tempted to put some neat TFR in a spray bottle. Wet the tubes with a hose, then spray the TFR on, then scrub it with a green scouring pad. Rinse off before it dries (and wear rubber gloves!)
