Hull being taken back to gel coat after 5 yrs/coats of anti foul, then keyed, primed and anti fouled by mike Whitham glass-fibre in ormskirk.

Then on to SIT in Preston, all the old extra rubbing strake from under the rear half being removed and refitted once the teardrop to the cones and seam/tapes re glued where it'd come away. (Explains our loss of 15mph at end of season) Plus a full tube refurb.

Going be like new, whoop

Also getting two cleat/handles put on top of tubes half way between console and bow. Somewhere to hold on when transiting to the bow in a chop for rope/anchor/mooring.

New Jockey seat covers, cushions and bases to go on base units, plus back pads. Old marine MDF bases rotten. Cushions being done in "closed cell foam"!! Should stop them absorbing half the Menai Strait.

Trailer had new brakes as seized and one drum collapsed. Also getting new bearings for piece of mind.

Will do a before and after thread with pics.

Looking forward to April.

[QUOTE="Crusher;598221"]Seats reupholstered, very pleased!! Helm removed for a o/h of the tilt mechanism..[/QUOTE

Is there a logic to the hinges being on the outside of the jockeys rather than on the underside?

Just got our cushions but haven't screwed hinges in yet so have the option.
