Howzit Guys,
Well Winter has now come and gone, I finally got my Rev counters delivered they landed in SA on the 22 May and only arrived last week, however I have now cut and fitted them into the console.
As for the hull I’ve patched the holes in the console, removed the Steel keel strips and resealed each and every screw hole. I however didn’t silicone the hole strip on yet as I want to paint the Hull.
I’ve also started sanding the outboard covers and getting things slowly ready for paint, I have a feeling it will take another good few months before I get her on the water.
As usual life gets in the way and there is not always money for the boat. But she’s getting there slowly.
But on the bright side I bought a second motorcycle and my Seized Suzuki is now working again after overhauling the engine then the gearbox (a small fortune) luckily I can do that kind of work myself.
    I have purchased new fuel tanks,got some cork gasket and made new carb gasketsre sealed keel strips, will seal properly with sikaflex once I have painted the hull.Patched numerous holes in the consoleFitted the steeringCleaned and greased the steering bearings on the motors as well and worked the motors free on the tilt tubes.Made up the seat base for the forward seat
I still have a long way to go and will realistically only be finished in time for next year summer. But I’m not letting that get me down.
