that's a really nice looking SR4.7, top choice

if you decide to get the prop repaired give castle marine a call, they've done a couple for me and I've seen a few stainless props that they've sorted too

Looks loads better with the cleaned up console!

Brilliant SR!

What type of equipment was in the housing consoles you removed?
It looked very odd.

It had a Humminbird waterproof VHF (thinking of keeping this alongside a portable), an Eagle GPS and Eagle Sonar / Fishfinder (both fairly dated I think), a search light which had completely corroded away and a fuse board (as far as I can work out this was just for the aforementioned kit). It did look unsightly and made access to the bow a pain, but to be honest it was a pretty ergonomic layout to use and it also had fixing points for a canvas bow dodger.

Thinking of investing in a multifunction GPS / Sounder by way of a replacement.

I really liked the bow dodger as a means of creating a semi-dry compartment at the bow, and I wondered if something off the smaller Avon dinghies would work in its place... Depending on how you rig it, it might be possible to have something that can be temporarily fixed in place. Maybe a project for next year...

I'd just copy the Avon D Class or Y Class design - often thought one of these with a join down the middle (industrial Velcro say) would be ideal that could be rolled up out of the way.

Great boat - you will have a lot of fun with her.

What areas you planning to explore with her this year?

Spent a relaxing couple of hours holding a DA polisher over my head this evening really happy with the results:













Also, I refurbished my winch:
