coastline 6m refit

well I've finally taken delivery of most of the big bits to start a bit of a refit on my rib and i know everyone loves a photo or two so i thought a little thread was in order!

basically the plan was to just pop on a bigger engine for a little more speed but as usual all plans grow legs so its looking like new engine, new jockey console, and some nice new electronics as well.

1. pre surgery
2. wheeled in to the workshop
3. old engine off
4. new power
5. a few cables

some more pre op pics the old engine and console and the new one to be fitted, looks like I'm gonna have some fowling issues with the underdeck cable chases due to the new console being thinner at the back so tomorrows job is to iron out that issue and a bit of trial fitting.

yea its in great condition to be fair but it was just time for some extra power!

the cable access has been a bit of a pain really i've had to take small sections from each side of jockey part of console to get it to drop in properly and i'll need to make up some kind of small covers to shield the two cable ducts and cables, advantage is it will give me much easier access to the ducts in future.

Enjoy, These are stunning boats and not many in Scotland. I sourced a couple of these and 1 is now on the isle of lewis where he is showing it off to 2 redbay and 1 delta owner!!

Oh and if you love that the new boat built by Brian is the island Rib and the is simply stunning. The best handling rib I have been on!

well done a bit of work on the console getting the tank extension cut and shaped to fit then glassed on inside, also cut the holes for the hatch switch panel and cut outs for the cable ducts.

couldn't help myself and hung the engine as well

so in the cut out for the cables are you fitting something like a recessed moulding such as a fuel filler moulding?

I see your tank is exactly the same setup as mine.

Mine's failed at 12yrs along the edge of one of the bottom welds. No apparent corrosion on the tank but that was the end of it.

Not being a profit of doom......just a point to bear in mind.

Good luck with the refit. Hopefully see the finished product down at Largs sometime.

not recessed more like a kind of clamshell cover as the cable ducts lie around half of their width outside the console so the plan is to make a little mould and glass up a small cover that can be bonded on for removal in the future if required.

yea similar happened to this tank a couple years ago and it was removed and rewelded so hopefully i'll get a few years out of it yet before anymore repairs, it seems to be holding up at the moment.

yea be good to see another coastline, not many of them about.

well its been a week of itching from the fibreglass! it turns out that after all the work getting the tank extension on and the various bits cut out that the bottom of the console isnt straight (i should have checked before cutting the holes ) so ive had to cut and drop the flange on the back of the console by about 15mm to get it to meet the floor.

bit of a nightmare but it looks not too bad now so got the console bonded and screwed down and got stuck into running all the cabling and fitting out the console, just waiting on the vhf and screen coming and i can finish that lot off.

next bit will be the floor and deciding how to tidy that up.

cheers jeff just got to mould the little covers to cover the cable ducts and hopefully it'll all look pretty factory!

its turned out a much bigger job than id hoped at first but im pretty happy with the results the bigger console totally transforms the boat and lets me get all the gadgets i wanted fitted just need to get it on the water now and see how this engine performs.

Just a quick question re fitting... what fixings have you used for the console to deck, are they just SS self tappers.... I am going to do a similar thing to you and change my console this winter, my boat is Ally hull and deck so I am wondering if there might be a problem with SS vs Ally, and whether there are any alternative fixings on the market that I am not aware of...
Your boat is looking very tidy now, obviously took your time and no shortcuts !!

You need to insulate the SS from the Ali OMO but I wouldn't use self tappers into an Ali deck because the thread crows on the Ali soon go and the screws pull ( from expeariance ) I would use threaded inserts SS but coat in sikaflex where they go into the deck then crimp and fit the bolts with silicon grease don't over tighten as SS can distort and thier a bugger to undo bolt wise get domed bolts with Allen key internal slot there's a name for them I have forgot
