Birthday time for the Quinnie

 Following on from my Gnaraloo post and the other post on here about a  leaking Quinnie I thought I'd put this up as it's also something to look out for on the Quintrex boats. So the girl has had a hard working life and the cracks on the forward gunnel as you can see had gotten progressively worse I thought it time to strip her down and giver  her a good refurb. There are also a couple of oher cracks here and there but nothing structural as I can see.

The gunnel section will be getting a repaint and just in time too as the paint bubbling had become bad around the rod holders etc. New windscreens, all new floorboards as the old one's are rotten and the new one's will be sealed properly with evadure. New carpets and new seating couretsy of Zoom. I went to the candy store errr Whitworths and came out quite a few hunge lighter with a new VHF, water separator assembly and other goodies. A very small tube of duralac for the screws and I will be greasing under the rod holders before they go down to help seal to the gunnels properly.

Drained the fuel tank today and it looks good inside from what I can see, some small particles but no water and any major crap. Will post more pics when she's done.

So thanks to photobucket all the original images are gone 

But here are the latest

All the weld repairs are done, managed to find a few small cracks in the rib stiffeners but nothing major. She's all sanded down now and waiting for some dryer weather to get some primer and paint on. It's amazing the shit you find under decks when you rip everything out. No more muesli bars allowed on board, fricken wrappers everywhere under there. Hope to have some painted pics soon.
