The transom got an undercoat of the orange flowcoat I had left over from doing the Searider as I don't have much of the red left. I sanded this coat smooth and wiped everything down with Acetone. You can see the under deck trunking pipe has also been glassed in, there is an orange pigment in the resin.

The patch on the floor was done first. Il get the dremmel out and trim off the excess glass, it makes the pipe too thick for the engine trunking to attach neatly.

The transom was given a coat of red. The colour looks garish in the pictures but that's the halogen lights being used as heat lamps.

Under deck trunking

Nice work,

I've got a 5.5m commercial wide body hull and always wanted to get everything under the deck.

How did you get the under deck trunking installed? it looks like you haven't had to make any sizeable holes in the deck to fit the trunking - was it easy to navigate your way through the stringers and bulkheads?

The only holes you have to make are the one that goes down through the floor in the rear jockey and the one that comes up at the transom, there are no bulkheads in the way.

I was also wanting to put a smaller trunk in to serve the A frame but I can't get over to that side because of a stringer.

Rear jockey seat.

I stuck a camera up this drain hole to see what was in the way, luckily the first bulkhead is about 4" forward of the rear jockey access hole.

Cheers gents.

Yep she's going to Easdale but there is still a mountain of work to do.

Im reckoning ive got 3 days in the hull and 3 days of rigging/wiring to do. It's alot when Ive only got a few hours in the evening to do stuff

Il also need to get it out on the water beforehand to find out how much fuel the Suzuki burns. I don't want to be running out on Oransay.

Anyone got one of these 140's and a similar sized boat?
