Just got back from taking my wife for lunch (Birthday...having forgotten anniv last week
) to find my new project had been delivered by Simon (Havener) ....many thanks mate, can't wait to get started on her
She is an ex RNLI D class (Poole have also sent me her service record and Hasting where she was stationed, some old pics of her...brilliant!) and needs a bit of elbow grease, varnishing and an engine....she also has some holes cut in the floor by the RNLI.
I have some miltary spec Hypalon (possibly not enough though) from Avon and want to set about patching....any tips on cheapest place to buy bostic also appreciated
The two circular holes at the front will be patched inside and out...but there are also two slits in the floor (knife cuts about 6 inches long)...so my question is:
1) should i stitch these before patching inside and out (or isn't it worth it?)
2) if so, what thread should i use to stitch?
Will be working on the boat as and when, but looking forward to getting it back on the water!
