Arr, now that would be a shame. Whilst posting pictures of your completed work is fine what folk really want to see is the work in hand and then the finished boat to appreciate what you have done. Since there are quite a few members on here with Seariders I dare say they would be very interested. So lets see the photos as your going along.

AAAhhh a pacific 22, I know a few people with halmatic hulls they luv um, literally bullet proof, cladded plate Kevlar....

OK, will take a photo of her when I get a chance, have turned her over and put her on the trailer bought off ebay.

So far, the bill is shy of 1k, still on the hunt for a cheap yammie in good condition.

Alright then,

Weather was good enough to get some work done this weekend, me and "der lads", got stuck in sorting out the tubes.

Picture 1 is Damo discing off the old poxy residue..... nnniiiccee

Picture 2 shows her completely gutted and blasted out

Picture 3 & 4 Showing tubes inflated and patches applied to leaks

Picture 5 is the additional rubbing patches attached

She is going to make a dang fine tender.

Other jobs completed over the weekend were modifying the trailer to ensure she sits on snuggly and servicing the landing cradle to ensure I don't scrape off any more paint!



Next step, console to be modified, A Frame to be wired......

watch this space.

No worries,

I cannot take any credit for this work as was not completed by my fair hand, but here is the latest progress report for her.

Hopefully will have her back at home soon, once there is adequate shelter and security is in place.

Aye,

The guy raised the original face a number of inches so you're not hunkering down as much.

She will be going to sea in the next couple of weeks for a bit of "testing". Not too sure what her performance will be.

She's outside at the mo, but will eventually be in her own shed (fingers crossed in the next week).

And similarly for the Garmin sounder.
