535 purchase

Post by Carey » Sat Jul 29, 2017 6:33 pm

Hi people, i have finally taken that first step and bought myself a 535, it needs a bit of tidying up but I'm hoping to get the basics done and get it on the water mid august. Hopefully I will then be able to work out what bits I would like to add to it. Looking forward to your input, the boats on here look great.

Purchased the fenders for it today and put them on, strangely satisfying.

Also put some carpet tiles around the inside as the old stuff was in a bad state.

Attached the runners for the centre part of the bed to slot onto as well.

Put up new curtains which my mum kindly made for me. I know I can hear you all saying I should know how to use a sowing machine.
