Revenger build thread!!

Seeing as everone will be bored over the winter (i think not!) here's another one of my joyous build threads to read!

I said i'd never do it again after the Puma, but here I am again doing another winter rebuild, this time I'm being more careful to build a boat I really can use for family and racing!

Basic plan is to remove all stickers, rub down refurbish and polish exterior, blueprint the bottom, renew all the interior, floor etc, re-rig completely, rebuild the 8.2 and supercharge. I'm hoping to have her in mint condition inside and out by next year.

I'll be keeping the build thread a bit shorter this time, with the Puma I spent more time writing the thread out than doing the build!

Here she is the way I got her (minus the engine) up at the vinery, ready for the build...

First day's work...

Here's a few pics from today, I've started ripping the interior and floor out, need to get the fuel tank out to see if it's ok, there's a fair bit of scabbiness at the back where all the connectors are! I've cleaned it in the photos, couldn't tell it was white when i took the floor up!
Everything's pretty rotten it'd seem, shouldn't be too bad to rebuild though

I have been told that the mold for the Revenger 25 or 27 (not sure)is here in Norway, a friend of mine got one built this year, they modified the deck a bit, the boat looks awesome, and runs great. I will get some pictures later on today.

Having raced one of those myself I would be interested to see what a new one looks like and to know who does have the moulds now.

They are a great sea boat as the Williams-Hawks brothers showed last year in the RB08.

James, I had one that looked like that years ago and it was a shed load of work to put it right. Nearly finished now ten years on

It's not until you've posted those photos that I realise how different the San Marino is to what you have. I was always under the impression that the SM was simply the Volante with extended bustles and nothing more but I was obviously mistaken.

The moulds in Norway are as far as I know from the SM according to Revenger themselves. They gave me an address and I tried contacting them a few years back to see what it would cost but got no reply.

Have seen a few since and the top deck is quite different to the original for some reason.

Every man need a winter hobby or two and you would only get bored of looking at that prestigious award you picked up in Herm the other night-Any photos out there ?

Kerry - Tell me about it! I keep finding more and more little issues, I'm having flashbacks here! There's some pretty serious cracking in the gel under where the fuel tank sits/the stringers, that should be fun to sort!!

Simon - I was pretty proud of my spoon, was thinking of making it a cabinet!

Cudmore - Thats a really good looking boat! As everyone is wondering, which model is it based on? What's the price for a hull?

Glen - Yeah it is a 25 mediterainee, same as blow job, just with a slightly less ridiculous name! What ever happened to blow job??

Rich - With an engine crane and a lot of swearing!! We basically lifted the back then pulled the trailer out from under it. Dropped the back at the last min then lowered the front down, simples!!

The Edge - Thanks for that, it's great to know people appreciate the threads and find them useful! I'm not planning to go into quite so much detail with this thread, tho i probably will in the end. If there's anything you want detail on, just PM me and I'll let you know!

Cheers for all the responses guys!

James

Today's progress...

Well I'm keen to get on with this build, I don't want it to drag on too long like the cat did!
Carried on ripping out today, took out all of the wiring, which was in a dreadful state, then took everything out of the driver's side. Managed to get the steering and some of the gauges out, the rest are quite corroded so will have to be cut out and it's a pretty tight squeeze in there!!

Well if it's no longer around, after you add the blower it would be an appropriate name change

good luck with the build.
