Sorry about the previous 'Borat' style thread. I was being rushed to leave the house.
No, not been out yet this season, but getting close to the pre-season 'once over'. The weather has been glorious down this way recently. There are a few jobs that need addressing. New VHF aerial, sort fuel management , replace peeling 'Osprey' decals ( Thanks again Roy), re-comission trailer (service brakes and re-fit wheels)and fit new compass.

Cheers for that. I might have to flog the Head Magnums to cover the fuel. Didn't fancy being in the 'Head Club' anyway, I wouldn't be able to cope with the 100kmh+ speeds.

Its really easy to fit you need to find where all your Network T pieces are(probably in the console) find the connectors then just Tee in this module takes about 5 mins and just screws in.


You can then get trip fuel usage info that can be reset from the guages. As for the tank fuel level then you will need the new fuel sender as Mollers said.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Also I sent you a PM a few months ago about your screen and Stainless surround. Have you got any more PICs as It looks like it offers good protection from the elements.

Chris
Hi Chris, thanks for the information re the fuel usage. I thought I had replied to you at the time regarding the screen, i`ll check my sent messages and resend, if I did`nt, please accept my apologies. The screen I had on that particular boat was ok in terms of protection and it was easy to make but I was never really happy with the way it looked. The grab-rail was very simple to fabricate and the screen was 3mm flat polycarb that was pliable enough to curve to the shape of the discovery console and held in place by the fixing bolts around the console and on the lugs of the grabrail. If you can send me a full size patten in card of what you want I can get you a screen cut as I have a plastics production company.

Thanks for your comments - it's interesting to hear what other people are getting although in the end I tend to agree with Bigmuz 7, let's just get out there and enjoy ourselves!!

The boat test on the Vipermax 7.0m is now available in the May issue of Sports Boat & Rib - I must admit I breathed a sigh of relief when I read it - I think our boats are really good and obviously I was hoping for a good review but I had no way of knowing what they really thought! It's a good honest unbiased test and well worth a read.
