Two plotter, one fish finder, one forward facing sonar, ais, auto pilot, fluxgate compass, remote search light and loads of other stuff, probably get one unit to do the lot now, how things have moved on

Thanks dude, I knocked it back and reflowed it to take out the low spots, nothing we did, I think the original mould must have been a bit wobbly

There's also a few other repairs that I've filled and taken back ready for wet n dry...

Got the worst of the rust off the back rests but haven't done the final polish.

Fitted Rik's fuel filter on the transom but the original holes are p1$$ed so I haven't made it in with the black stuff as I reckon it's worth a little re drill.

RIBase
Auction

Alex, what's your target date for the auction and are you intending to use ebay as the shop window with loads of publicity/links to drive potential buyers to the listing?

I might start advertising that it will be available soon with links to here and our facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rib-4...92579350800614

In terms of date it will be good to sell her at the start of the season?

I may well do sealed bids instead of an auction?

But she wont be sold until she's perfect And I guarantee that she will be just that
