Bought an old Searider off here a year ago
I'm trying to tidy it up a bit so I spent today replacing the valve seals and rubbing down the floor with fine wet n dry also did the console.
This is where I need some advice
I was thinking of painting the deck with non slip Flo-coat & patching a few bolt holes in the transom & console then painting these with smooth Flo-coat also thinking of Flo-coat on the hull.
Will the hull mark as it goes on & off the trailer or is the Flo-coat fairly tough.
The deck is in fairly good shape other than the orange is a bit faded in places, is it worth painting or am I not going to gain much.
The tubes are in ok nick but a couple of the seams are not stuck that well one tube has a slight leak which I'll sort later.
Really don't think it is worth the cost of a re-tube so I'm thinking of wear patches over the seams & rubbing strakes to smarten it up a bit. Is this a diy job or one for a specialist? Any ideas on cost?
Might need to remove the engine to get at the transom its a Mariner 40hp 4 stroke is this something I can lift off or do I need a block & tackle.
