Ribeye 600 is on my drive!

My new (second hand) boat is safely sat on my drive (all locked up) on the trailer!

I just have a couple of minor jobs to do:

Job 1 - to re-screw the fuel filler tube into the indent in the console, where one screw has pulled slightly, leaving the tube off-flush

Job 2 - to take out the "botched" VHF cable that has been coiled up unfinished on the A-frame for so long that it's got salt water ingress in the inner screen

Job 3 - to sort the cable gland that has had two lots of holes drilled, with two lots of snapped off screws left in and then left loose and unsealed, with the cable from job 2 going through it and under the boat

And then I can take it for a spin without the salesman sat next to me!! Woohoo!

I've got the same combination sat on my drive, with a few jobs too, install chart plotter and fixed VHF. I've had it out on the water a few times though and it handles and goes really well with a yammy 115. Enjoy.

Yeah, mine's a Yammy 115 too. Will endeavour to put some pics up over the weekend. If I get time in between doing the jobs & going to the boat jumble!

Dont leave it on the drive too long or you will find more little jobs to do. Mine has sat on my drive for three weeks now and the little list of things to tinker with gets longer by the day.

One bit of advice. Never screw something that you can easily bolt
