Thank you everyone for your input over the last few weeks and especially the advice over this damage.

I'm pleased to say I have successfully negotiated what I think is a fair deal (for me anyway), taking Sundays damage into consideration.

I look forward to posing further questions to the forum and maybe even answering some as well!!

Thanks

Andy G

Hightower,

What happened with the repair - did you do it yourself or what.

Hi ya Paul,

Thanks for asking.

RIB's been sitting quietly sitting up the drive since I bought her. I've been doing some well needed work on the trailer so won't move "Kohaku" until I'm confident about that!

I'll get the Outboard serviced and over wintered at MB marine then slowly get her shipshape for the spring.

I'll repair the damage myself when either I get a place undercover or the weather warms up.

I have noticed a number of longish gel-coat cracks on the port bow going from the nose for about 1m/1.5m, roughly where the deck meets the hull (the cracks are outside), this is giving me a little cause for concern, but when Kohaku is trailerble I'll take her to someone to ask advice. Perhaps she's hit something in the past!

I've got my VHF booked at the GAFIRS, Stokes Bay on the 29th Dec, so I'm looking forward to that.

Just debating if I should go and pick up some bargains at London in Jan. It won't be much fun by myself though! Perhaps I could meet up with some like minded people.

Are you still venturing out into the Solent then? I guess the cold weather is yet to come.

Andy
