  1. oh i know it's easy, i've made all my sides, and all the other cushions on the last 3 boats i've restored, but always find the helm seat uncomfortable hard I usually grab a 2nd hand memory foam mattress and cut that up for the internal seats that convert into a bed, really cheap usually about £20-30 for a decent 2nd hand mattress
  2. it's just a piece of ply, i have re-done the box so it's basically an open top box and the seat makes the lid and it just sits on top with a couple of 1" battens to stop it moving
  3. i did think about that but my layout won't allow that annoyingly my backrest is actually built into the unit which also doubles up as a side for the fridge / tv area if that makes sense
  4. I have a storage unit that has a foam cushion on top which is attached to a plywood base which is the helm seat i need to keep the unit but want to make a really comfy seat for the top It has normal foam at the minute but i find after an hour or so driving they get really uncomfortable anyone got any ideas how to make it more comfy pls?
  5. how do we get the boatshield stickers pls?
  6. oh brill hi we have a little group of 3 of use owners if you'd like to join us. Can you send me pictures etc pls Steve
  7. annoyingly i'm helping to make a tank for my gas bottles tomorrow so already commited, but i would like to another time please

  9. asap won't sell just the nuts i don't think, yes they are still on the industrial estate nope 28 tpi isn't a typo it's a very fine thread did speak to someone who had a 5/8" unf but it wasn't 28 tpi that is an idea Stranger i'll have a look i did think could i re-tap the thread to accomadate a more common nut also
  10. I'm after a couple of nuts for my roca wiper motor. the thickness of the shaft is 16mm or 5/8" and i have measure the tpi at 28 in 1" does anyone know what thread it would be as i cannot find a nut for it anywhere thanks
  11. i certainly haven't critisiced anyone and am extremely grateful for all help
  12. also the wires rail that i think is the glow plugs looks very rusty so i wouldn't mind having that changed
  13. ok confused me already lol yes it's a diesel. and i know there is a fan belt for the alternator not sure about any gearbox levels i think it's a prm box i think thats what i was told. i am one of these ppl if you show me and i do it i remember, if i read it i will never remember it hence why i'd really like someone who has patience just to walk me through it at the actualy boat and say this is this and that is that please
  14. trouble is i am pretty basic knowledge with regards to engines yes i can change the oil etc and rewire a boat but i have no idea where wires go on the actual engine or alternator. i did think about swapping the filter for a spin on normal type seen the conversion on flebay
