A couple of boat things

Post by James » 08 Jun 2018, 15:22


Since last years Scotland adventure, my boat has been all packed up collecting dust.
The Outboard is very dusty.

The only boaty things I've done
  • Help Recover my dads speed boat
  • Today, I pumped up my F-Rib
My daughter has a pet wild mouse, and it escaped in to the garage. I was worried it may have eaten my boat :cry: . However, I've just pumped it up and it's all good :D

I can't remember what the anchor point is called, but despite the boat being folded it, it has not come away from the tube. Awesome product.

Tomorrows job is to test my 15HP outboard. I then need to fit a fuel pump to my 6HP outboard

Good to see you back James, we've missed you :hugs
We'll excuse you with building work/extensions going on and new baby's arriving :lol: :yay
Glad you've been able to salvage the ole mans boat .... it looked a disaster from previous posts but what do you think :?:
Hull water logged, OB corroded :?: .... obviously it's all dependant on the time they were submerged :idea:
So your FRIB hasn't been eaten after all the misgivings .... go buy a lottery ticket mate :lol: :thumbsup
Fingers crossed for a good all-round outcome for the both of you :thumbsup
