Refurb, Bwm 18, deck console and seating.

A few months ago i replaced my rotten deck on my rib, while i was at it i decided to make a new double console and new seating, and everything else that goes with it.
Now i know there's been umpteen refurb's posted, and "iv'e learned a lot from reading them"
but since it's winter and not a lot to talk about, i was going to do a thread covering all the work i done, so if anyone's interested in seeing this let me know.

Iv'e included a before and after pics.

Gerry.

I've a bit of a personal interest in BWM ribs. Big job there - get the photos up ASAP! I'd be particularly interested in the fuel tank photos and if you have one of the hull, external at the bows.

'bout time we had a new refurb thread to follow rather than interminable navel gazing and drivel about behaviour and etiquette

Bwm Deepsea 18 refurb.

Here we go then, I bought this rib way back in april 2013 having had a 380 yam inflatable for the previous 3 years or so and had brilliant fun and been all over with it, however i fancied something a bit bigger so i got this.
Not having deep pockets i had to settle for a boat i could fix up the way i wanted it rather than spend a fortune on a tip top one. I had a good look over this rib and decided it would do the job, the tubes were pretty well worn, "some will say f-----d", the deck was slightly spongy, however i was sure i could fix these things up, all the baffles are ok and they hold air, the hull, engines, "twin tohatsu 50s"were good and the trailer was reasonable so i bought it.

Some pics when i got it, first time out.

Bwm deepsea 18 refurb.

So having been out on it 2 or 3 times and was happy with it, i decided to recover the bow tubes before they got any worse. Now the tubes had serious sun damage and down to the weave in places, but i knew that, and had already talked to Christopher at henshaw's on the phone before i bought it, "extremely helpfull guy"and he talked me through the procedure to repair them, so i bought the hypalon and glue etc from henshaw's and made a start.
My big problem is, i have nowhere under cover to work on the boat, it would all be done outside, so i had to wait for some dry warm weather" not easy in Scotland", before i got going.
Now what i would have really liked to do was remove the rubbing strake, cover all over with very neat 25mm overlaps and refit the strake etc, unfortunately that all takes time and with the weather window i had i'd have been out of the water for weeks, so i cut strips of hypalon and roughly butted them up and cut 50mm strips and covered the joins.
It was slightly difficult going round the bend of the bow thats why i done it in separate parts.
To make sure it stuck to the dodgy bit's i coated the whole area in a thinned down coat of glue and left for 24hrs, i then glued as normal with 2 coats of glue and fitted a strip of black hypalon above the strake to cover the edges.
I then fitted some black 3mm cladding to the bow with a cut strake to hold my bow line and light board cable, and some new handles, this was all done 19 months ago now and is still good, everything's well stuck and no change from when i finished it.
i plan to do more on the rest of the boat when i get time.

Some pics.

Gerry.

Hi Willk, here's a pic of tank before and after i removed it, hope it helps, what do you need to know about the hull?, can you see it in the other pics.
Tanks about 91--95lts.
