First boat sr4 project

Hi people this is my first post I've been watching my dad's account (beamishken) for ages but just got my first boat that my dad's going to help me do up.
It's an sr4 we bought from davie off the forum here's a few pictures of it when we bought it so people can see the progress and hopefully give me tips on what to do.

That looks really nice, like new the top of the tubes are really good is that where you took the lacing cuffs off? What material have you put on, is it black hypalon or some sort of rubber?

Its standard Dan. Just a different version to what you have..!I had an identical version to yours.see below. that's what makes the SR's so good as you can really personalise them.

Removing a clamshell? How can I forgive that??

Joking aside welcome to ribnet.

Engine rebuild means you have no doubt about its history.

That looks like a cool project. keep us posted.

Just took the old console out and tryed the new one that Phil M kindly sold to us, one of the best bits about it was the price, beer and I am not old enough to buy it so got out of paying therefore my mum had to pay lol.looks alot better than the last one that was in. I also struggled for a while to get the A frame out. After more of a clean up it will be time to flip it over and take the thousand of bolts that are holding the hull guard on.

After giving the tubes and inside the deck a better clean up we flipped it over to take the stainless plate off the bottom. It was held in with hundreds of self tapping screws. Once I got the plate off it was starting to get dark so I couldn't clean the silicone off.
