Coming together. looks good. What's the story with the boat. Looks like it was dragged from the seabed in the first picture.

It was used as a Moorings boat down in Plymouth up until a few tears ago and then found it's way to the River Avon.
I always think they're worth doing as long as the transom's OK.

Edd did you get any further with this & did you just lay the new floor on top of the old?

Indeed it is a 90 and running nice! It has 21" Solas prop on it and is running at about 38 knots so far, no Tacho fitted yet so don't know what the Rev's are and not running it at full chat until there is!
The boat has been round at Beesands pulling skiers all day!
