He wants 3500 for the hull, the problem is the potential amount of work. The strakes on the tubes alone need plenty of work, transom was maybe not weak yet but had water damages as had already some variations in thickness(easy to spot when comparing to the aluminium profile on top on transom). Yes all doable, but outdoor would take forever with the spare time i have for now. Maybe not a bad deal for the right buyer with plenty of time.

Luckily there is no wood in the transom. It's all foam and fiberglass. But 3.5k is abit too much for the hull in that mystery condition. If there would be room to bargain the whole thing a bit down and then sell the engines it might be a deal.

That's good information thanks, maybe there was only some minor delamination on the transom then.

Have You had Yours weighed? Just realized my trailer is only good for 840 kg on top of its own weight(axle is 1300 kg though). Little tight i guess....

No I haven't weighted it but I recon that mine is also on the borderline when it comes to trailer capacity. I believe that it's about 950kg. And I have a trailer that has max capacity of 1000kg

Bow locker progress

Finally I have started the bow locker project. Also add a carpet to the floor, I found it from dumpster so quite a bargain and not concerned about the longevity. Some photos attached from the progress so far.

More pics

Laminated 2-3 coats with 450g. chopped strand and polyester resin. Will continue with pvc-foam core and biaxial 444g. cloth. And going to switch to epoxy for the inner layer and the front side of the box. I had to use polyester due to temperature reasons when laminating outdoors.

The plug came off quite easily, so now it's time to plan how the rest of it looks

SP great so far I'm just wondering how are you going to prevent rub on the tubes are you planning to set it aft a little to give a gap between tube and locker?

Don't see a problem with chafing, it's a snug fit and therefore the pressure should be equal on all surfaces. It will be easy to take off and will keep an eye to it. If I'll see some spots wearing I can just glue on a wearing patch.

current state

And this is where I'm at now. Going to be really fun to glass that recess for the hatch. Had to go for a flush mount design..

It's done!

Installed today, but still have to put on a lock and some anti-slip to the top. Next project might be a new aft seat / motor-well combination.

Fantastic job. Looks ace. Youve made it look easy! Which I am sure it was not.

Can I ask what did you use as a release agent on the original plug casting on the rib?

About six coats of plain carnauba wax.

Seating rails

Now when the winter is coming it's time to start thinking about new modifications. I got the Halmatic jockey seats that were sold here in rib.net and now I'm making plans to attach them. I'm steering towards airline track / L-track but haven't been able to find any stainless fittings. Anybody know anything?

Attached is my inspiration. I don't need any quick detach options, I'm fine on using a spanner. So would need some stainless M8 studs. I'm having some stainless flanges fabricated that will attach to the seat base, and that then locks on to the studs on the rail.

I actually found these fittings, but struggling to comprehend about the price for a single nut with a clip. It's a mystery why there is not a variety of stainless stuff available for these kind of tracks.
