What ever we deside to do I need to do a lot of work on the inside and a repair to the underside. After going aground on the bar I seem to have lost a bit of fibre glass from one of the running scates. I also notice the former chairman of the LMBHA has joined the migration to the otherside of the Looe channal and gone to Southsea Marina. I know Phil had good reasons to move and Southsea Marina is in a splendid position (no boat parks or slipway) but the moves go no to Solent ports.

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

The refitting begins. A lot of stuff needs screwing back on and refitting.

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

Looks like a new boat Robbie, very smart. Look forward to a run next season, and may be some fishing would be cool...

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

Last bit done the other weekend Matt and I stayed on the boat all weekend on the hardstanding, great weather a couple of pints in the Arub Veiw Saturday night. The headlinning is now up, and Adrian has fitted the Lumynition EI.

All good?

No!!

Why?

Bloody alternators seezed up and the leg trim motors broke

A new altinator from Volvo Penta 520. Or 165 on eBay.

Anybody want to buy a boat, only I'm thinking of taking up stamp collecting.
With stamp collecting you don't spend out a fortune and end up with less than you started with.

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

Rob a couple of options, perhaps.

1, The elctronics is fine you simply want a new front bearing fitted?

Alternator shop can do that for you, or any engineering business.



2/ Take it down to GW bridges dismantler in pease pottage, ask for Alec.

He'll probably match it up. Put your electrics in that alternator if need be.

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

Steve forgot to mention option "3"

Sell your boat and buy that Windy or Montery that you have always wanted
you know the ones you look at at each boat show.

Just think in a couple of weeks its the sports boat and rib show.

you know you want too. It makes sense. Cruise in comfort Your better half will thank you for thinking of her needs and comfort

Well I've already bought the one off eBay, and the old one has 'totally shagged' written all over it. Plus this is a genuine marine unit and I'm not so sure about the old one.

Just waiting for Adrian to sort out the leg trim motor cause I dont have a clue how that works, it's all pipes and wires.

Re: Robs Boat Salamis

Robbie,


Soon there will be nothing else that can sneak up on you, and the boat will running better than ever I am sure.

When its all up and running, I feel a Pontoontalk fishing trip and barbeque could be on the cards..............
