Good luck with your project and have fun.
Transom Drain is planned, same goes for Cable Ducting - the Console will be glassed on, and i'll build a bow locker too

Would love to - I still live in germany and in germany a good SR4 costs 2-3000 and thats without a motor(if you find any)

Buying one in the UK would be possible but the cost for petrol would be quite high and so its propably cheaper refurbing this SR - plus i like working on old stuff

Absolutely, you will get far more enjoyment out of it, its just about winter anyway so you will not use it afloat, far better to play indoors

SR4 made a grand job of his , last time I saw him it was dark and it lit the marina up with !
, fish were coming from all directions .

Anyone know what happened to SR4, not herd from him for a while and mextli could really do with his input , no one knows as much as SR4 about how these are put together, the above lights were fitted in side his sinking hull.

I can understand you not wanting underwater lighting at this stage , the point of the post was just to explain why SR4 is the best person to ask.
He has fitted the underwater lights under the hull at the tern, inside the sinking floor.

Thats invasive work into the floor.
seems he is away as he hasnt posted for a while.

He has maybe set off on a round Britain cruise , it was equipped well enough

I think he went outside, and MAY be some time.

I've just tried to send SR4 a pm to draw his attention to this post but I cant pm yet, presume I'm too new or not got enough posts yet ?

Can one of the regulars pm him for his input please , alright I know mexti doesnt want a hydrostatic released inflatable self righting radar arch but SR4 has an in depth knowledge of how the searider sinking floor inside and SR4 could be a valued contributor on this thread
