Great to talk the other day I think this is the really exiting bit Can't wait to see the pics, hoping to pop down with the guy who donated the rib once work starts, he's a big fan of Henshaw

Hummm, going to write a list of stuff, but not too much to go now, need to concentrated on raising money to pay Neil back for the donor boat so I'll do the accounts this weekend to see where we are with that.

Excellent, feel bad now, but I've got lots of family stuff on this weekend

Other updates:

Had a call from Low flyer re the uphostery, looks like the foam will be replaced too

Also had a call from one of the Boat Show emails that I sent, can't accommodate us re the show but are looking to provide some stuff

So all going well I reckon

As I'm being asked of what items we are outstanding here is a quick list off the top of my head...

*Off the A frame, the 2 white plastic pipe clips that go on the top that hold the pole which has the all round white light when it folds up and down. Also the clevis pin that holds the pole up in place. Sorry I don't know the sizes until we get the a frame back.

*Old school Mariner male fuel fitting to fit fuel hose. Like this:

MERCURY MARINER FUEL LINE FITTING MALE CONNECTOR | eBay

*Wide trailer board, think its about 5" or more, needs to be wide as the poles that come out of the trailer are quite far apart.

* 2 x Carling Switches

*Ratchet straps x 3

*Orange prop bag

*There will also be a few small bits at the end of the build but hoping not too much, keep an eye on this thread

*If we provide a decent safety package with the boat then according to the RYA we would need the following items which are ideal for a company/chandlery to donate...

Pump for tubes
Fire Extinguisher
First Aid Kit
Safety knife / rope cutter
Tool kit in a waterproof case (suitable for a Yamaha 90hp 2 Stroke)
Waterproof torch
Handheld VHF (nice to have)

The number one priority it to raise enough money to pay for the engine and trailer by selling parts and collecting donations into the bank account in my signature By donating money in this way allows us to complete the build. So for example a 10 donation soon becomes worth a lot more as the build comes together and at the end, the final sale price will have gift aid added so it is the most effective way to contribute to this project

I've already got the spanner award from Hightower and I still have the rib award for best advice from Nasher, I can't stop. I might be on borrowed time. It's flat out for me for as long as I can. On that note. Am I using the old steering and wheel
