Shetland 535 Referb!

Post by Stupot27 » Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:05 pm

Hi Everyone!

I have been looking for many months at getting myself a 535 but have finally taken the plunge! While I've been on boats all my life I've never had one of my own so figuring the referb out step by step by doing my research.

She needs a little work so I wanted to share my journey on here - would love any tips or tricks or even just thoughts from anyone who has some more experience!

Cheers!
Stuart


Here is how I bought her

Will keep updating as I go along!

Have already started sanding the Cabin down in preparation for a repaint!

Im based in Devon so looking to keep the boat on a drying out mooring down here, will be used for some evening fishing after work and weekend trips along the coast and up some of the rivers around here!

Looks great. A small bit of TLC but nothing major. Start enjoying her and you can do bits and pieces as time goes on.
