Des, do you know everything about these boats or have you got a spec sheet to chaet with??!!

Ian, the towable RIB went out the window - ive regretted selling the boat to you ever since i saw it being towed away!! Ah well, live an learn - the one ive got now isnt like yours though....its a bit of a wreck!

Wouldnt want to bother you with the starter ian, its a pain for you if your busy that weekend. Anyway, it does have to fit the standard instrument panel. Would it?

Is yours in top shape des? If so, would love to see some pics of it - may encourage me to work a bit harder on mine! Also, have you got a website for that prestolite place?

Cheers guys

Sorry to say it is looking a bit tired, after the case of the disapearing jerry cans through the deck, a tempory hatch cover has been fitted, the engine mounts are shot and now i have a bearing grumbleing bearing on the outdrive, i have been so busy up till now that i have only kept it serviced.

The trailer is getting two new axles very soon, for Cardiff and while it is out i will do the outdrive, i looked yesterday and i have done 130 hrs since i picked it up from you, very , very happy with it, cant think of anything i could replace it with.

Cardiff would not be a problem, we could meet up and have a beer ?????.

No, I just had to find a lot of these parts myself so keep a list for reference.

www.prestolite.co.uk/ for the switch. My boat is in reasonable condition but it has taken time, found one photo and I’ll try and post some more pics soon. How much is missing from your boat?

Ian, sorry to hear about the problems youve had - think its mainly to do with the age - im anticipating them all over again with this one - must be mad!!

If your bringing it up to Cardiff, would be nice to see it again and yes, im definately up for a beer at some time. Let me know the dates etc and ill pop down.

If you did want to replace her with anything better, i think your only option would be to buy a bigger one!! Maybe a Pacific 28 0r 32? Big bucks though!!

Des, she looks good from a distance - your lucky youve got the later Henshaw tubes. They make hell of a difference. What year is she?

If you have got a list of parts etc, would you mind if i keep bothering you when i need a bit? Close up piccies would be nice too if you can find any!!

Will have to post some pics of my wreck soonish.

Cheers

SEB

She is a 91 boat with 96 tubes, which I got from the MOD.

I’m only too happy to let you know any part numbers I have because I know how frustrating it is trying to find these bits.

Follow all pac 22 threads closely as we hope to get one soon.
Why do henshaw tubes make such a difference to original tubes??

IMHO theres nothing wrong with the originals at all - theyre still of very heavy duty construction and are of a better quality than the majority of tubes out there.

However, i have been told that the build quality of the Henshaw tubes are even more superior and of course, they look more up to date and with it.

Also, i think they will tend to get less shabby after time as the lobster back type cladding on the originals is notorious for wear!

Cheers

Seb you’re right there is nothing wrong with original tubes, in fact Henshaw made a lot of them.

One of the reasons these tubes look scruffy is that they have a ‘matt’ finish which tends to hold the dirt.

FPT who also made tubes for some P22 used a poorer grade of material. FPT will supply tubes if you ask but I am not convinced that they make them.

If you need any of the ‘lobster back’ cladding let me know, I know a place that used to have some.

Just some quick pics,

I tried to keep the original idea of having helmsman totally at the centre of things. Garman fish and GPS both 3 years old and still working. Silva S15 screen dodgy so back under warranty in November. Kill cord bottom right (cropped the photo too hard and can’t see it now). Foot straps glued to the deck by Navy, not pulled them off yet

The folding A frame allows me to store the boat in a low building and use a local slip which has low trees over the entrance.

I keep the CQR on the deck so I can deploy it quickly (30 secs).

The foredeck hatch covers an enormous locker.
