Looks good! Always nice to have a little project to keep us men busy. We bought a RibTec 5.2 metre a couple of years ago with a 75hp merc two stroke on the back. Spent a bit of money on it upgrading it and its looking good.
Put an A frame on the back and fitted some rear seating which is also a cool box, we also did some hull repairs last year, nothing major just a bit of a tidy up, although i did learn that its hard work sanding the hull!!!!
When we first bought it 2 years ago
Put an A-Frame on her last year so we could ski off the back and totally redone the electrics as they were horrific!
The engine had a full rebuild too last year after losing compression on one of the cylinders, so while it was apart we gave it a total overhaul. New pistons rings, changed a few bearings and the power head was unserviceable
so we put a new one in. Turns out the automatic oil feed wasnt supplying enough oil and it partially seized a piston. So the garage advice was to remove the automatic oiler and just do premix, so we always 100% sure its getting oil.
Suffice to say its a brand new engine, which i much prefer as I know how its been looked after and it gets serviced every year.
We changed the prop to a stainless steel one and increased the pitch as the old one was dangerously allowing the engine to over rev on WOT. She has gone from having a top speed of 25mph to 42mph, although to be honest i dont like going that fast its bloody scary.
Cant wait to go out on it again this year, we should definetly meet up and go around gower, would be nice to see how your getting on with yours.
