Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

Screen was next.

I got a piece of tinted acrylic from ebay, and cut and shaped.

(Followed Nugent's sticky on screen's), thanks Ed, worked a treat.
As it was pouring rain outside, i rounded a bit of 3x2 to the contour of the console, and bent it on the bench, same result.

I cut some washers from 3mm cladding to act as spacers on the inside of the screen to let any water out, and more for under the stainless washers on the front.
I also cut some bigger one's for the big grabrail on the front, as it was half over the screen.

Looks like a great job you've done there Gerry.

I have to say that it's weird following this, awaiting the next instalment and yet knowing that the boat's already completed!

Yep so different to most build threads it's after it's done

If I do another I am most definitely going to time lapse it on camera ,

Most people who work with me winge lots at the speed I work plus the way I work shit out and it works ,, my wife always said I was special. Lol

I hear what your'e saying, but the truth is, when i started it i had no intention of doing a thread of it, i was more concerned that i would get it finished.

It was just recently, i was looking through all the picture's i had taken at the time, and i thought it might be helpfull, or interesting to other's, as iv'e learned loads off this forum myself.

Carry on Gerry, the thread is excellent and as you say, helpful, interesting and educational.

Great stuff.

Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

By now I was running out of time, as we were going a camping holiday with the rib in a few day's time.

I had originally planned , apart from what I'd already done, on building a rear seat, to house more storage, battery, fuel filter etc, and an anchor storage locker, all glassed and finished the same as the rest, but this will have to wait unfortunately, never had time to cut out deck for my underfloor locker.

So in the meantime I built a quick box affair rear seat and painted it. No anchor locker.
My wife made the seats, (good material), but just domestic foam in the meantime, and attached with velcro, ( works well).
(I wouldn't want to do a round britain with them). She made a new prop cover as well.

Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

CONCLUSIONS.

All this was done 3-4 months ago, and iv'e done a few miles on it since,
I'm happy with the layout of everything, I really like the console, and i'm glad I spent some time doing mock up's to get the spacing of everything just right, (for me).

BUMMERS.

Not getting the back seat, and anchor locker done.
I'm not too happy with the finish of the flowcoat, it dried really quickly, and didn't flow the way I expected.
I done the console and seat inside, so their was no problem with temp, and I was quick putting it on, but it was drying as I was brushing it.
If I had the time, I would have rubbed it down and done it again, "but that'll be next time".

Other Bwm owners might be interested to know.

The boat's hull and transom were really solid and well layed up.
The deck underside, had no sealer, or fibreglass "at all"!!.

But what amazed me was, there were 3 bungs, 1 from each deck chamber, all going into the transom well, now during the time I'd been using the boat I was always opening the bungs when I took it out of the water, as I knew there was water getting into the hull, through (holes in the jockey console, burst witches hats etc), but no water ever came from the port, or starboard chambers, just the centre.

Well no wonder, the holes in these 2 bungs were only drilled halfway through!!,
and the starboard chamber was half full of water, and that is the side all the cables and control's go under the deck,( not in any trunking either), and had witches hats, front and rear on the deck, so were just asking for leaks.
My new trunking is inside the console, and rear seat, so shouldn't have any problems there.

So all in all I'm quite happy with all the work Iv'e done, but as you all know "no one's boat is ever finished".

Gerry.
