I'm not gonna lie this isn't going to be a record breaking project lol

Console is now off.

Hole cut in the bow for Henderson hatch and to allow me space to get in and fibreglass the two holes on the bow previously cut.

Still contemplating what to do about seating.
I will be having a single console but then wanted two double pod seats either side at the back. Has anyone got a pic or know if this is going to be a bit cramped?

Also. Think it may be easier to flip the boat upside down to remove the antifoul and re gel the bottom where required. Has anyone got any tips of making the flip easier as will just be getting the mates round to help lol

Well today started with the intention of filling the two holes on the bow and then starting to scrape off the anti foul.

Well that changed when we started scraping and decided removing the engine and flipping it over would be faster and to be fair it was. It's just a sh*t job using a chisel to remove anti foul lol.

Whilst upside down there has been some glassing done previously and isn't the nearest of jobs so will be sanding this back. Tidying it up and then will flocoat the bottom to get it back looking spik and span.

The bread dolly I had was perfect for moving the hull about the drive. Was just a shame the trailer only has one wheel as took the bearings out of the other as this made it a bit more adventurous getting the boat off lol

Well may as well use this as a time to update,

after removing the antifould the previous owner had "reinforced the keel" but there was too much flex in the hull for me to be comftable so i set about ripping the floor out and spent ages removing the foam and cleaning up the hull. pics are below showing some of the progress and i am glad i have done this as it defo needed reinforcing.











i have also sold the Suzuki that came with the boat and replaced with a Yamaha 90Hp and also the 102ltr tank has arived. new wood for the floor has been purchased and console has been ordered from Mike Whitham and collecting in just over a week.

Hi from a complete novice at this how do you go about redoing the floor as I'm doing my Eagle up but not sure what lengths to go as yet. Cheers Nigel.

It cut around the outside where the wood finished and lifted it out in three pieces. Was a time consuming job making sure didn't cut where I didn't want to.

I will be adding ducting under the floor so was another incentive to rip it all up
