Seb, We tried using these Oceanline ammeters and found them different too. One problem being as I remember a relay needs to be put in before the gauge. Cant quite remember though. Anyway, we thought it was more trouble than it was worth so we sent the ammeter back and opted for a volt meter instead - again oceanline. No problem with fitting and also you dont need to run those heavy power cables up to the dash. Also having a voltmeter allows you to see the real state of the battery when the engine is switched off. Presume that you got your ammeter from Low Tension - he sounds a nice guy , he may swap it for no extra charge if you want to go down that route.

With regards to your back covers flexing, we stiffen these from the inside with another bit of ply glued on. And no more flexing. The same can be done with the large covers at the front with some strips of hardwood.

The alloy plate sounds like an even better idea though. better still if a different solution was found instead of using a million screws to hold the covers down!

All those screws are just to stop bored little fingers on RN ships from tinkering and clearly it works. Halmatic don't want people fixing things on board ship when they can do a very nice refit instead. Loads of them in Halmatic at the moment under going refits.

Prices

Does anybody know roughly how much a standard RN P22 mk1 was to buy before they were discontinued?

Seb I don't have a figure but I promise that if Halmatic are selling to the RN then the price would take your breath away. It could also include a maintenance package as well though. If I can get mine into Halmatic for repairs then i will ask them, however they are very sensitive to working on MOD boats. No cameras on site and don't look at that grey thing over there. What that funny looking %*&*%. Oh okay.

Halmatic

Cheers.

Having problems with the boat are you? You must have a big bank account to be putting it in to Halmatic for repairs!

Do you know if they do tours around the factory. Id quite like to see where mine came from. Guess its a pretty impressive place.

Seb, As I remember the last price of a mk1 was over 90k, and i heard a mk2 was 125k. Dont know if I would spend quite that on one though!

Pete, Depending on the repairs, i would use a local boatyard. The machinery as you will know can all be done by either going to a local company or Mermaid. Thats where Halmatic send all theirs.

As for a price guide to what they charge, well you know those little aluminium strips that hold the tubes on... well they wanted nearly 800 for them, undrilled & unpainted. That was with trade discount - so i will take a set. Not!

We scots are known for being a bit tight though!

Ive put some pics below of a boat we have done recently, getting the rear decks done etc, and that alteration to the engine bay. Ill take another photo when it goes in the water again tomorrow or thursday. The aft engine cover looks quite good with a different hand rail and seats.

a pic showing the back end, about 9 - 10 " gained and the engine & box can still be lifted out complete. You can get nearly 2 feet with some more adjustment but it gets cramped , the good thing about these boats is the access to the engine - if you want it.

I would like to point out that the person in the picture above isnt me!
