Some before and after shots !
Had a great trip to Cowes last night and as a bonus we saw 2 dolphins just off Southsea at the small boat passage!
I like diesel the fuel gauge has yet to move and no it is not broken!

Wow, that cleaned up nicely. You've obviously got a tub of elbow grease.

Totally knackerd at the end of it and it still needs more on the hull but that can wait till winter .On a seperate note does your leg generate static ? I leant over the transom and touched the top of the leg to see how hot it was and I am sure i got a belt off it ! I was hanging on to the A frame at the time .

Dunno, I've not done that but how hot was it? My guess is it was fine cos when I've changed the drive lub (often) it's never been anything more than a wee bit darkened. Maybe you were charged up and grounded youself to the drive... You'll be wearing them old purple nylon knickers again.

You've just reminded me so a wee note for you. The engine block of the KAD is not connected to battery negative but it is connected to the sea via a small cable on the inside of the transom shield. When you stop the engine, a relay pulls in to make a ground connection for the stop solenoid to activate.

I think it's an anti-corrosion regime. The engine will (should) be at the same potential as the sea water.

Could you touch it happily?

No, it's an Ocean Offshore like yours. There are pics somewhere here. The Jackeens posted them a while back.
