tubes

Then after 24hrs of elbow grease with fairy power spray... we sneeked into Wayne Maddox's workshop to crane off the engine for new mounts and a full rebuild.

Whilst in there local tube man Darren came along and worked his magic.

Here she is tonight in our workshop being stripped for various repairs and bits. Ant will be along shortly to tell you what's planned but as he can't drive / hasn't got a car the boat will live afloat and so antifoul and if it can be squeezed in a bilge well are on the cards. I expect the flooding hull will need blocking up too.

RIBase
Looking forward to watching the progress. Great choice of boat, SR4's and SR4.7's are the best small rib
