It did. Mine was somewhat curtailed by the weather last year. as well-we barely even got a weekend that it didn't rain in.

I think it took me longer rubbing down the console and jockeys to get the yellowing out than it did for you to replace your whole deck.

I'd take you up on the offer, but I've got so little left to do now that it'll be finished with 2 nice dry days.

Not this year then. They've both gone already

Been busy today.
Sidescan and downwards transducers installed, bilge pump screwed in, that monstrosity of a hand bilge pump removed and the holes filled,a couple of loose bits of rubbing strake reglued, transom drains resealed (they didn't look like they really needed it, but better safe than sorry), new anodes on the motor.

Jockeys go in tomorrow!

Now this is exciting stuff!

When are you swapping the trailers over?

Ok, time to think.

I was going to make a list of the stuff I've done/replaced on it, but the list is just so big I can't even begin to remember it all. So, I'm going to make a list of what I've reused.
  • Hull+tubes
  • A-frame.
  • Speedo/revcounter
  • Smartcraft loom
  • Console
  • 4 Jockey mouldings
  • Seat foam and covers
  • Most of the steering system
  • Motor
  • Oil tank
  • Battery trays
  • Console hatches
  • 3 screws (the only 3 that were actually 316 stainless on the whole boat)

Everything else has been replaced.

Thanks I'll give you a ring when I know. I've got to fix the trailerboard socket on my car first anyway.
Bring a trailerboard!

It doesn't count in the Thames!
