Looking good - what are you doing about sealing on the jockey pods - I want to mod mine to make them properly waterproof - do you use a rubber seal around the top or what???

I may use side hatches (like Prosport) and seal the seats cushions on the top. Haven't decided yet. It'll be tha last thing I do anyway.

Side hatches will definitely make it waterproof - the scumbag didn't fit them to mine as he had run out of money - he said it was a new design...........

Having said I am pleased they are top loaders - much easier to get stuff in and out - just got to get some waterproof seals on them. Done right i think top down is definitely more useable.

The A-frame arrived today. Haven't offered it up to the boat yet, but it looks good to me. Spent quite a bit of time designing it on CAD, so I hope I've thought of everything.

Got most of the bits now, all lined up in the lounge and ready for fitting. Must start putting bits on the boat and reclaim the carpet before there's a divorce Engine due in 4 weeks

Why don't women understand this sort of thing? Surely a nicey shiny A frame is a much better ornament than some silly vase or painting???

Tell her it's a decorative arch and wind flowers around it!!!

I'm not sure about the bench sofa but each to his own

Wait 'til she sees the engine propped up against the sideboard

Laid out the keelguard yesterday and commented how there was ample space lengthwise for the boat in there, and if we knock the front window out.....

Slow but gradual progress. The engine is still somewhere in transit, so the A-frame is still in the lounge! I've managed to make some headway with the wiring however and have at last got hold of some of the little bits and pieces that I think will finish it off nicely. Check out the latches for the console door. It must have taken me three weeks to find what I wanted on the web, and then another 5 weeks delivery... but worth the wait. Was a bit shocked at the 40 each mind you But then what's 40 out of 25k or so in total!

Had to order the black flexi conduit from Brownspoint in America for the engine cables/loom. It is a Suzuki part but unbelieably not available in the uk. Strangely though the adaptor for the cowling end of it is. It should match up with the entry on the engine cowling and keep everything neat and tidy. The whole lot passes through it, including the fuel line so it'll all be protected from the sunlight and UV.

Just need to find some hatches that'll fit on the side of the jockey seat boxes and make a template for the console screen so I can get one of them made up. Perhaps another month and I'll be ready for the summer
