Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

The rest of 1013 i used the boat as often as i could, and the only other job i done was build some seating, a quick box affair with some hinged lids which gave me some storage, and seats which i didn't have, as it only came with a jocky console.
I managed to get out 13 trips, and a couple of weekend camping trips that year, i'm pleased with that, as i have a 100 mile round trip every time i go out, i bought a tube for the kids and had some good days out.
By the end of that year, having got used to the boat, and some of it's shortcoming's i'd made my mind up i wanted an engine with electric start and ptt, and a double console and seats, I like doing things this way, as you know, all boat layouts are compromises and one setup suits some people and not others, another reason, i tell myself, for not spending money on a "good" boat only to find out later your'e not happy with some bit or other.

Now i know a lot of you know exactly what you want, but you maybe have had a few boat's, " and more money," and finally settle on your perfect layout that suits you and your family, this being my first rib this way suits me.

Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

Over the winter i started looking for an engine in all the usual places with not much luck, so i ended up buying a wee speedboat with an old, but very low hrs, and freshwater use only 100hp mariner.

I fitted the engine, battery and wiring, guage's and controls to the rib and bought a 4hp auxiliary.
I sold the wee boat and trailer on gumtree, and all told the engine cost me about 300, and iv'e still got the twin tohatsu's.

I'm happy with the engine, although the twins were really good and easy to start, but the lack of trim adjustment for varying loads annoyed me.

Next job was to start thinking about a new console and seats.

Think you need to go to specsaver's Steve, it's the guages off the wee speedboat, just roughly wired up till i made my new console.

Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

Over the next few months i started buying from ebay etc, all the stuff i was going to need, or want, hatches, stainless grab rails, compass, garmin fishfinder, vhf, sound system, switches etc, and a new gps antenna as this had chucked it.

I spent a bit of time checking out picture's of ribs to help me decide what kind of console and seats i would like, i didn't want to fill the whole deck with seat's, as my kid's do a lot of swimming, and snorkelling and want a bit of deck space, and my wife Doesn't like jockey seat's!.

So a bit of time with cardboard cutout's later, i started work on it.

and all the corner's routed.
All pretty sturdy.

All these were sealed and covered, inside with 1 layer of 450 glass, and outside with 1x 350, 1x 450, and tissue, then filled and sanded.

The plan for the console was to contain the fuel tank, and give me some storage space.
the tank would would fill the console and wee seat in front.

The main seat i made with a top and bottom space for more storage, i tried them for fit on the boat, and then flow coated the insides in white.
I could have made them a bit wider as the boat is quite beamy, but i wanted room to walk past without climbing on the tubes.
