@nugent - any booth would do me :-)


Few bits of progress,....

Cut out more of the deck to fit in the double fuel tanks. Routed the under deck conduit (that was a nightmare), 4 double skin bulkheads to get the old one out of, then i'd only gone and bought a new one that was 4mm wider

About 4hrs of dremeling and having to cut lots of holes in my deck :-( it was out and the new one in. Brute force and 3 men :-D

Anyhow, next was to reinforce the deck, make the recess for the fuel tanks and then seal everything up. All came together pretty nicely in the end, tanks in place, and all sealed up, will need few more coats of glass to level everything off. I'd ideally like to re glass the whole deck, but i cant find anything suitable to attack this black stuff. Just taking out the little patches on the rear of the deck destroyed 4 50grit discs on the grinder and took about 20 mins.

Next bit is the Hull, flipped it over yesterday with the aid of the new a-frame we'd built to hoist it and other projects. Still wasn't easy with 5 of us, boat is real heavy!

Finished sanding it up, just need to fill some of the scratches now before paint.

Can anyone offer any advice on the best way to repair this? There's a little flex in the glass on the very front of the hull:-

EDIT - Quite hard to show on the pictures, but basically you can see the layers flex when you apply pressure over about a 2 inch section. THe second photo theres no movement just a section where it's lost the "inner" glass filling.

Probably worth adding a couple of layers to strengthen it up. some of the resin will get into the matt that is exposed and should toughen it up as well.

Top coat finally gone on, along with a number of bugs. Just needs a few days to harden before buffing out

Finished spraying the hull on Sunday, and thankfully we've had 3 hot days since to bake the paint. Whilst waiting for it to dry and stop raining tonight we've started work on fettling the trailer. New alloy light boards made up with submersible LED lamps, stainless rivets etc. These are going to be hard wired as I'm fed up of pratting about with light boards, bulbs going loose, wires not making contact and finally loosing them on the motorway. One either side and are hinged. Marker lights going down the side as in the one journey I've had with it we nearly got side swiped about 3 time with other drivers not seeing the trailer on the back (somehow). Just need to spray them up and finish the wiring. Hopefully get the hull buffed out Friday before spinning it back over to finish the deck.



Oh and keel guard to fit too.
