Top coat on

Deck paint next. Pushed ahead with making the seat covers too. They've not turned out bad in the end. Took about 3 hrs to do one seat....thank God theres only two going in for now. Would probably pay someone next time!

Deck finished. Just needs a few bits riveting and its ready. Don't have the console yet so the tubes are going on first. Trying to get it finished for the end of June, fingers crossed!

Bought separately and made myself:-

Pods ; 2 x RIB JOCKEY BOAT FIBREGLASS SEAT PODS MOULDING BASE | eBay

Backrests; had them fabricated by Marine Fabrications in Staffordshire

Leather - eBay

Foam - Eventually from eFoam (great service and appears to be cnc or at least very well cut) - Initially i ordered from Anyfoam and that was a disaster (wouldnt accept a e-mailed technical drawing of the shape i wanted for the base (as you can see it's not complicated) Insisted on me making life size templates and posting them over. Despite doing this and including a 3d technical drawing and clear instructions, they still made them the wrong size making one too big and one too small, it also looked like it had been done with a bread knife.

All in all cost me about 650 but this was still significantly cheaper than any quote id had to purchase them"pre-made"

Yeah need to change the washers actually for stainless ones or a2. 50mm plates going internally, and I've glassed a piece of 12mm ply onto the inner skin. To try and avoid any cracking

Bit late I suppose, have you tried those 5inch scouring discs, scotch Brite on steroids. They are use for stripping paint, they eat it and don't scratch metal or wood, they don't clog, but wear out gracefully. Unless you pick a nail sideways, you are then reminded your using a grinder not a magic sander.
