I got the boat around this time last year and got the deck sprayed and did a couple of other bits as at the time I was planning on selling it at the beginning of this year, so I left it through the winter just needing upholstery. Then this year came around and I decided to keep it so pretty much started again, apart from the deck being painted everything on the list at the start of the thread has been done since easter - so about 6-7 weeks.

Cheers Blue Mist
Will keep everyone posted on when it goes out,
last time I saw it go in the water someone had taken the liberty of putting a claw hammer through the hull so was a sad sight!

Well it floated and ran..... sorta....
need for new p.head gasket meant there was a bit of a water leak,
one cylinder got wet so we trickled round the harbour on 2 seeing if it would pick up, was juggling between 2 and 3,
was still ready to plane on 2 but didn't want to push it.
gasket should be here anyday anyway and have got the IOW festival all weekend, looks like tuesday is next outing
