I'm only seeing the bit behind the wheel. Is the whole console like that or just behind the wheel? If its just that bit then personally I might be tempted to add some form of custom "Plate" to it... If its the whole thing then that wont work. You can paint them but its cr@p so your best approach is flow coat but if you've never flow coated its a bit of a learning curve to get a flat surface.

Oxalic acid based cleaning products seem preferred round here.
Heya, yeah it is the entire console thats like this, will look into flow coating!

Whats going on with it? Most people who need to flow a console is because its been drilled and filled to oblivion. From what I could see this isn't drilled and filled...

Maybe it was painted and now that paint is knackered? Or maybe its UV damage but why the console and not the toobs. Does it clean up with solvent (e.g. MEK) or polish up with T-Cut?

tornados are PU unless they have been retubed . every one that I have seen that has had new seam tapes put on has fallen apart within a year or two of having the seam tapes replaced which is why we refuse to replace the seam tapes on tornados or any other PU tubes

I saw this boat a year ago and as only an experienced amateur put no more than 2-3 years left in the tubes.

Ed at Ribtube did a tube on one of these for me recently. Exact same boat. I therefore assume he'll be able to give you a price off the top of his head... 07595 590486. If you intend to keep the boat (and i believe it to be worth keeping) worth having an idea what to put aside each month !!

Paul Tilley is also a tube man (/\ above), and also in Dartmouth. He'll tell you he's from somewhere else but it's near to Dartmouth.

Otherwise heed his advise on life span and enjoy the boat for a year and sell it whilst tube problems don't deflate the value (get the pun, er ?).

Hi, same boat as mine,I agree with the seam tape being replaced,mine were done and didn't last long at all,probably worse than the state of the originals!!! Ended up getting new tubes from henshaws,,looks like brand new boat. Well pleased. Click image for larger version

How much did that cost you to get done?
