New Member, Console advice.

After 7 Years without a rib I have just purchased a 6.5M rib with a 100hp Yamaha four stroke on it.
Its an ex commercial Dive rib and needs some work and tidying.
The engine is 5 years old and has done very little, was the main reason for going for it.
Welcome to all!

the console on the boat is fairly battered with many holes in it, and needs replacing. It looks as though its bonded to the hull, can anyone give me advice on removal? Is it a cut out job and sand back to give a flat area to install a new console? There is an internal fuel tank in it but hasn't been used for a while as it was contaminated a while ago and nothing has been done, they just ran it off the red removable tanks. There is one leak on one section of the tube, I have found the hole it just needs patching, can you recommend the best products to use for the repair? Whats the easiest way to find out if the tubes are PVC or Hypalon?
Any advice on the project would be very helpful.

Thanks

Ed

What make of boat is it? Different people use different methods for fixing consoles/seats/etc. Generally they will be some combination of screwed/bolted and bonded.

Not sure on the make as I don't have a data plate it has SMC 600 on the side of it if that makes any sense,
It looks like the flange of the consol is bonded down. How can I find out? Investigate with a fein tool?
Would pics help?

Don't recognise the make either. If there is a sign of a join at the console/deck interface it is likely to be bonded plus either screws/bolts. If it actually fibreglassed in place it may not have any metal fixing (but probably still will).

Have you locked inside the console for a flange on the inside with fixings?

Yes have checked inside the flange is definitely on the out side,
what would be best to remove the bond on top to see if there are fixings underneath?

That's almost certainly a Humber. Tubes are begging for a bit of traffic film remover!
