dangerous rib

just have a look at the way your rib has been set up before this season if you are like me you don,t know whats what

my valiant had be set up by a approved dealer outside london its two years old this may so after seening the paperwork and the the large bill paid by the old owner off i went

it seemed a bit of a mess with the cable runs but what did i know i will list the repair work carried out to put it right

remove and refit control box (so your knee can,t hit the choke)
replace control cables (over two meters two long left rolled up in the stern)
rewire the consul trim and rev guage wires (were all falling off and not set up)
try to fix the navman plotter (they cut the ariel lead ive been told this is good)
remove and refit steering as it was on the wrong side and the engine turned further one way than the other. the cable had been bent through three 90 bends
install complete new trunking for cables and steering and control wires

they just seem to make them so the last the year then fall apart

not happy DAN
