Didnt go play today , but started taking bits off..

I'll be swapping the single red console seat for a white double.

Single for sale !

Looked at treadmaster and it was/lifting a couple of places so that had to come out, which actually makes the boat look wider and bigger .

The front and rear jockey extensions have come out - a very nifty bit of work both of them ( included if you want to buy the single) and again make the boat look bigger and ease access to the bow area.

Spray deck is staying - as Steve said it part of the SR4 history and might even keep stuff dry !

Still looking for the Yamaha colour ... and undecided about deck trunk...( I just hate cutting big holes)

You can see in the pic where a light polish has restored the console ( the top bit), the rear seat extension support and the treadmaster removed from the internal 'hull'. I'll probably keep the main dech area - but want to be sure I seal any holes it may be hiding ...

Picked up new console

I think will go well in an SR4. It clearly off something that was in Lymington for a while . Its got a compass and I liked the fact there are some stainless bits to hang on to at the front and back, and it was two minutes from my mums house ! So I got a free dinner and 'points' -

I can also stash a flare box under the back of the rear of the seat.

Its exactly the same width as the current single so I just need to remove a strip of treadmaster down the middle before screwing it in ( hopefully Saturday) if I can get to a place to get some sika etc ...

Question - what number sika do I need ? Of course I want some 'stick' as well as 'seal' .

Single is available for anyone for sure now.

Pete

looking good Pete!

I too would like two seats, and your console has given me an idea of how to extend mine.

just need to find someone to fabricate some stainless steel, anyone know of anyone local and reasonable ?

Hey Pete

Lovely Looking SR4 you got there

De-Luxe Version too

Personally, i'd remove the Bow-Doger, you have more space on the boat then, but thats up to personal preferences

I managed to get the Hose stuck in the Flooding hull too

Hi mike.it should all come together well in the next few Weeks. As for ss work I have never needed any bespoke stuff, but I'm sure if you posted a question names will come back. Biffer had a great reputation, but has not been to well, but maybe a little seat extension will be up his street? Failing that am sure a search will uncover those in the know.

221 , though 291 will do the job as well.

Got a pic of the engine? If it's the same colour as my Yam, I've got the Yam colour code for it.

Cheers Nos - off to Force 4 at lunch time to see what they have ( all of 500 yards from my desk ! )

Some pics further back up the thread - but I'll get a detailed one up when I'm home and its light to take the picture. BHG have said they cant find the colour unless they have the serail number - again daylight needed !

Hope its not raining on sat for the console work , but even then I could put Streaker in the rain for a bit .

Oh and of course need to come up with a name ...quite taken with Grey Ghost/ Ghostrider theme...combine them for Greyrider ? ( need to put something on the ofcom site , CG66 etc ! )

Of course Grey Ghost is a very nice scorpion ( migth get it confused ? If only ! and Ghostrider is well and truly taken ! )
