New Member, Console advice.
After 7 Years without a rib I have just purchased a 6.5M rib with a 100hp Yamaha four stroke on it.
Its an ex commercial Dive rib and needs some work and tidying.
The engine is 5 years old and has done very little, was the main reason for going for it.
Welcome to all!
the console on the boat is fairly battered with many holes in it, and needs replacing. It looks as though its bonded to the hull, can anyone give me advice on removal? Is it a cut out job and sand back to give a flat area to install a new console? There is an internal fuel tank in it but hasn't been used for a while as it was contaminated a while ago and nothing has been done, they just ran it off the red removable tanks. There is one leak on one section of the tube, I have found the hole it just needs patching, can you recommend the best products to use for the repair? Whats the easiest way to find out if the tubes are PVC or Hypalon?
Any advice on the project would be very helpful.
