McMillan donor RIB

Back on this today.


Got moving with the console whilst waiting for spots of epoxy to dry on the hull.

Glassed up behind all the old holes and filled, sanded and under coated.

We will paint this Click image for larger version

Interesting, even fun perhaps for me because I've never done anything quite this serious before (and I'm not getting my hands dirty either).

But not profitable, that's for sure.

Looks great work, very impressive.

Are you doing it with a view to selling it?

Yes I've a frightening number of projects on, so doing this to turn it around as an "unfinished project" and clear some space.

It needs to cover its costs but I'm not being greedy. I'm thinking 1000 bare hull and tubes. The tubes really are excellent and so will the hull be !
