Priceless quote that one. A very exact estimate. A bit like approximate accuracy.

Glad you like the trailer.

I would put an all round white on a 1m pole attached to the transom, and a bicolour on front of console. Both lamps then give you Nav + Steaming + Stern lights for when under way, and the white on its own an anchor light.

If you want to tow, put a rope bridle round the back of the outboard attached to u-bolts in the outside of the transom.

That's what it looks like was previously fitted hence marks on console and the pole mount is still on the transom.

I said to Ant in reality he won't be going fast in the dark and an all round white would meet col regs for a small craft under 7knts.

This said we did both decide a small a-frame is very light if just single hoop style and fixed to transom with U bolts ? Anyone really know they weigh the back down considerably?

This project has stagnated a little since February but is underway again, perhaps the sunshine spur'ed Anthony on.

I agreed to service his engine in exchange for some polishing effort on my ballistic.

Just a minor service as shown in photo.Click image for larger version

SR4 refurb

Anthony - my polish'er - unfortunately wasn't satisfied with such a small amount of effort in exchange for his services (perhaps he thought we just changed the spark plugs and gear oil) so I've also been relieved of a double console from my collection destined for his SR4.

This man is single handedly depleting my stash of rib's and rib stuff. Mrs daniel is delighted. Best get back on ebay and top up but don't tell 'er...

A prize to anyone who recognises the donor rib.Click image for larger version

SR4 refurb update:

ant unfortunately lost interest after disasembling everything into boxes.

He obviously hasn't seen the light and a deal was struck to buy the boat back and ant bought himself a motorbike :-(

Anyway I'm determined to put this back together. It's a cracking little boat.

First job finish console refurb. Decided to stick with the original SR console, not least because it'll bolt straight back in using the same bolts !
