Interesting thread. Once it's rewired, new batteries and you've sorted the fuel lines, then you've ruled out about 99% of future problems.

That's what I'm thinking-probably late 40s, maybe low 50's as it's VERY light for what it is-there's quite a lot of unneccessary crap not going back in.

I've put a 21" Lazer II on there as the original prop was obviously underpropped.

Once it's finished, it's going to have been almost totally dismantled and reassembled.

So far I've found nothing at all that can just be re-used straight away.

Weight all up is....don't know Lighter than one with ski lockers, tables, jockeys and a big pile of the assorted poo that gets shoved in lockers in the bow though!

I think it's a 200 litre tank-thats what JBT said was fitted to them in 2004.

Well, today's job didn't quite go to plan. What was supposed to be a quick job removing all the old sealant turned into an all-dayer. There appeared to be at least 5 different types of sealant used on it from badly applied Sikaflex to 2 different colours of silicone bath sealer. None had adhered properly, but despite being the wrong products and poorly applied it took a long time.

The good news is that I've found something that does appear to soften Sikaflex a bit. It's called No Nonsense Sealant Remover. It doesn't make a huge difference, but it made it slightly easier.

The deck hatches went back in today -it's going to apparently chuck down tomorrow so it's getting a damn good scrub then as it's about the only thing the rain can't screw up.

The pic below is far cleaner than it was-nearing finishing removing all the sealant from the deck.
