The humber project

Okay so I bought this rib blind off eBay had it delivered to my driveway in the Uk whilst I was off working in the Med!

Got home weekend just gone and this is how she looked okay! Very dirty and very tired from being neglected!

The rib had a 2006 merc 75 2s on the back, full merc and quicksilver controls, electric trim/tilt and came on a sturdy trailer with everything needed to get it going again!

The engine had no faults it's just the rib that needs a going over!

So far I have jet washed and started to clean the rib with dettol mould and mildew remover and she's coming up great! Sorted out all the wiring and cables as it was filthy, put a bilge pump on and i am starting to re do the electrics in the helm as they are all corroded!

Have fitted brand new helm steering unit and new teleflex steering cable!

Here's some pictures of the progress!

The first pictures are of when it arrived, also included some pictures of cracks near the transom. Think they are just surface cracks in the second skin but would appreciate any feedback on them....
