Bit shocking I must say. However, I have never seen a Humber tube end look like the one in the picture, and there's lots of Humbers around here. Nor have I ever seen the Humber 'H' logo placed where that one is either. Perhaps this is the latest version.

If it's a genuine Humber build, I'm really surprised I must say.

What is the best way to protect the floor underneath? I am in the process of replacing the floor in my sparrowhawk and will flocoat be sufficient for the underside or will it need to be glassed?

304 primer and flocoat with a nice wet viscosity of flo coat, mix flo coat with some styrene to thick it becomes brittle hence thin it out ,,

Following this thread very carefully.

I got my 6.5 Ocean Pro to do in a few weeks. Was going to recoat the deck, but thinking I need to do some investigating now!
I have a big section about 6 foot by 2 foot in the middle over the tank which is screwed and sikka'ed in. The pods and console are screwed and sikka'ed down.

Hopefully won't need to replace the deck, it doesn't feel spongy as far as I can feel.

The problem may lie with the quality of plywood, there is a lot of Chinese ply bought now and sells cheaply compared to the high quality stuff. They are all marked up as marine ply, but there is a huge difference in quality.

Honestly I've had lots of humbers and refurbed one last year,, it was sound as has all the others ,


I reckon its down to a bad fit out,
having the huge screws go all the way through the deck un sealed has made all this Come About, water creaping through causing it all to start de laminating
Possibly sat around with under hull void full of water for a while also,, naturally sits on trailer with front end down low,

Who knows and we will never know,,,,personally I like the humber destroyer and would have another.

Reply is "Good Afternoon Mr Smith,

I can confirm that the internal structure on all of our crafts are resin
sealed. I hope this helps if you have any queries please do not hesitate
to contact me."

So not primed or glassed.

Not bothered if sealed. Am I right?

Terrible Resin is not even water proof,, it should have a gel wash at least !
