Mind, to do it again Mrs M would take some persuading . Again and never were just some of the words she used

I have not quite finished the story yet. As will become clear, to a certain extent it is out of my hands

Picture one shows the underside of my upper console with the flanges that I will bolt it down with in position on their temporary brackets. You might notice the bare earth and threadbare grass behind the console. That is where my hull etc used to live No, my boat has not been stolen , but has gone back to Eurocraft for some additional work that I have requested. The best guess is that it will be away for two more weeks. So I am continuing to work on the console and battery holders to get them ready for when the hull comes back.
I am now putting the permanent 'flange' mountings into the upper console. The second picture shows the two front outer mounting brackets 'in the buff', having just been epoxied together. The third picture shows the brackets after having been rubbed down ready for fixing into the console. When this is done they will be clad with fibreglass and gelcoat/flowcoat. They can be seen in position in picture four.
So In the meantime I will be working on the console upper section and the battery holders - hopefully completing them for when I get the hull back; we shall see
And that's it, that is where I am currently at; no boat, and still quite a bit to do. But, I'm getting there

So, how's it going? It must be coming on now.

3yrs in March, that has to be a Ribnet record.

The Saga

Blimey, I didn't realise how long it was since I did any of this Ribnet stuff So to follow on from what was ages ago; it is probably time for a little more honesty
One of the delays in getting the boat together was that it had to go back for a re-tube, yep new tubes had to be replaced. A line through the bow of the boat would have had me going around in circles It took a little time to convince Eurocraft that it needed doing, but eventually they re-tubed the boat. So the first pic is as it came back.
The second picture shows some detail of the mounting arrangement for the upper console, which I have changed from the original arrangement to something more substantial. These will have bolts going through them and through mating flanges in the lower console.
To gain access to the interior of the console I decided that I needed hatches in the sides of the console. Just screwed to the sides looked a little agricultural, and so I decided to inset them. This involved routing out the recess for the flanges.and putting a small return on the recess while I was about it. You can see the general idea in pictures 3, 4 and 5.
