For some years now I have been reading all the treads on this site involving the refurbing of ribs, each and every one of them has been both interesting to read and has had the wee voice in my head saying as they do on Top Gear “how hard can it be”
So when Chewy stuck his 5.4 hull up for grabs. “how hard can it be” became “ah sod it”
400 miles later picked up 5.4 hull and had a think.
I don’t like that off set seating on the 5.4
I do not want to build a seat that straddles that plank
The bolts in the floor for the transom supports where chopped off.
So I am thinking deck up and re-do. Oh hold on a second some goon (not Chewy) has filled the hull with expanding fome.
RIGHT THEN, decided deck up time.
Day one: Killed a 4.5” grinder and only got about 2 square feet of deck up.
Day two : Chainsaw
got the rest up, sodding hell that plank in the floor is heavy.
Day three: oh no transom is gubbed too, chainsaw time.
So now I have a bare hull and that is it.
Come on guys tell me I did the right thing
