I think thats Simon Nuding's (posts on here) old boat, he shipped it in from South Africa new and fitted it out some years ago, probably had a few owners since then! Good Luck

Spent the afternoon in the garage getting yellowing off the jockeys. Oxalic acid had done a little bit of it, but they still looked pretty bad. See the 1st pic on the tread for the state of this pod before I started. I haven't done the far right end of it yet in the 1st pic.

It's taken about 4 hours so far on this pod. The side is only at the 1st stage-rubbed down/yellowing removed with 280 grit wet'n'dry.

I'm having to use photos as reference where the yellowing is now as I've stared at it so long I can't see it any more.

The good news is that I don't need to flowcoat the seat pods.

It'll be a while yet, but hopefully before the Round the Island.

I've been doing the same this afternoon. More rubbing down/removing yellowing.

And more rubbing down/yellowing removal.Nearly 5 days solid work since the last update. Seat pods are now finished and polished with an electric polisher, as is the console and most of the stainless fittings.

I'll post some pics when they are in recognisable lumps

Ok, console is now re-polished and about to fit everything into it for refitting to the boat. It's SHINY...

New graphics for the motor arrived from the USA too that look somewhat cooler than the standard Opti ones, but still in keeping with the motor.

I spent 2 hours today fitting new engine bolts to the boat-it's got to be launched to swap it to its new trailer and I noticed when I fitted the outboard lock that the bolts turned, so decided to reseal them.

The good news was the transom is dry as a bone inside and new engine bolts are now in, fitted with a huge amount of Sikaflex 291. It's pretty safe to say there won't be any water ingress along the bolts


It's rant time now.

SOMEONE (it appears on face value to be the company who'd worked on the motor before I got it) had put a spreader plate on that was so deep it made the steering ram body hit the engine bolts and damaged the ram body ends.

Not only that,they had used mismatched engine bolts. The bottom 2 were different lengths, while BOTH of the top 2 were very obviously 2nd hand when they went in, and were bent in 2 places each. There was no damage/ovalling to the holes or gelcoat on the transom and the bends were in completely the wrong place to have happened while on this boat.

They had also used a 'hardening' type of sealant (rather than the elastic type that's supposed to be used) to fit the bolts-totally the wrong product for the job and whatever it was, it dissolved with a quick wipe of xylene. I think I've had a very lucky escape.
