How i spent my Christmas

Well fellow ribsters
i decided to repaint the hull on smurf (searider )
A task that i looked forward to but would not recomend
it was a pain i wanted to strip the yellow paint off and put back to origional orange what a job
the only thing that would bring it off was one of those sponge things that you connect to a drill and dust well it traveled aprox 15 mtrs covering everything (carried the job out at work)
well rather than write a book on this thread its now compleated
just ordered a new fuel tank and i have the task of putting engine and consul back on

well carn't get the pic's to shrink to show you
Barry

Don't talk to me about rubbing down hulls,mine was antifouled when I purchased it. As she is not kept in the water anymore I decided to remove it, just to pass away the hours over Xmas. For a change somebody had done the job properly and sanded the hull with a DA sander before painting. This means that I now have the job of polishing the hull completely with an electric polisher. Not a easy job when on the trailer.It will be worth the hard work in the end I'm sure. May even get a few more MPH's out of her.
