Just an update on current work, a cockpit refit finally!

Completely ripped out the old and removed the old rear seat boxes. Fiberglassed in some new bigger ones, new carpets and linings, new side panels with a pocket in each for sunglasses etc. Seats are in the process of being upholstered, the driver and passenger seats are just a plain cushion using the standard Shetland brackets so the can fold down and give a bit more space to move around when at anchor.

I'll get some more pics up when the seats arrive

Hi Steve

It wasn't cheap about £330 if I remember correctly but it was worth every penny, it hold 24 gallons and takes up no cockpit space at all. It came complete with a sender, fuel gauge and fully tested for insurance etc. It fills remotely using a deck filler just to the rear of the starboard navigation light and vents to port. It's also as far forward as it could be so helps keep the boat balanced nicely. I got it from a specialist fuel tank maker somewhere in the midlands, http://alumacraft.co.uk/

I managed 33mph out of her once on the Menai straits against the tide, it was mirror flat, she tends to start pitching above 28mph in anything other than mirror flat conditions, we generally stay at 18 - 26mph for cruising

I just emailed them to ask what info they needed then sent them a drawing of the tank with the measurements. They thoroughly checked everything and double checked with me then it arrived by carrier a week later. I put it in myself and connected it up, it was a bit of a fiddle getting it in, I think I only left about 12mm clearance for fitting, in hindsight I would have been better leaving about 25mm (12.5mm all around). Apart from size and shape the needed to know the sizes and positions for the filler pipe, vent pipe and the engine supply pipe. They supplied the sender and the gauge (choice of colours) along with the rubber washers and screws for fitting. They were very good and made sure everything was right for me as long as I had measured it correctly. As it turned out I had to saw the right angle bit off the filler pipe as there wasn't enough room to get it in under the starboard foot rest. Thankfully the pipe still secured OK, that bit of extra clearance would have come in handy there!

Hi

Great looking boat

I've busted started by refurb on my BlackHawk. Did you replace the deck? Mine has water underneath in the rear deck and cabin area, so interested in your approach if you did!

Regards


Mike
