Hi all, am new here but thought people might like to see the work I am doing to my rib.
Never owned a rib before, yesterday I purchased an 8m Ocean rib with a yamaha sterndrive as a project as I knew that the whole deck was completely soaked and rotten so needed replacing etc etc.
This morning the work started !! jockey seats removed, deck cut out (only the top laminate skin left !!) what is left of the plywood I have been scooping up with a dustpan !! just stopped for lunch and to watch Moto GP qualifying
going to get the fuel tank out this afternoon and clean it all down so I can let it dry out. I am going to do the deck in sections, once this part is replaced (all composite and no wood at all this time !!) I will remove the console and do the front. In the meantime the tubes will get some much needed attention and all of the electrics replaced.
