    Hi Tom,
    i have just got it in the boatyard, so it is going to be a bit of time before make a start on the repair on the transom. When I start on the repairs there will be a running blog on the repairs as I have done on other projects I have undertaken in the past. Do you have one of these type of speedboat.

    REGARDS

    The manual bilge pump diverter now installed so that the engine bay and the lower bilge can be pumped out with the same bilge pump in the port aft lockebr />






    The first piece of carpet lining glued to the side of the cockpit on the port side and now the heater can be fixed in position and piped and wired up







    The starboard side carpeted as well and the fiddle rail can be screwed back in position and so can the engine control panel,then the steering pipes can be run through to the stern and connected to the steering ram.







    Both sets of roof hand rails getting a good rub down ready to be oiled with teak oil once they are sanded down to a natural colour.

    The manual bilge pump diverter now installed so that the engine bay and the lower bilge can be pumped out with the same bilge pump in the port aft locker

    No, I have a rascal that I finished about 6 years ago, but that boat looks interesting. I’ll be looking forward to a thread on it.

    At last got the anchor locker bulkhead glassed in and flow coated and so the anchor can be stowed back where in belongs in the stemhead bow roller fitting



    A well thought out stemhead fitting for a anchor







    All the chain back in the locker and out of the way, the only thing it needs in about a 100 ft of warp on the end of the chain to give it a good cruising ground range as specially where this boat is going to be cruising.









    The steaming light mast is now wired up correctly for its light fitting and just needs the deck gland wiring up and sealing down to finish that part of the job off and then thecockpit roof lining panels can go back up in position

    The hull and superstructure are now in need of a good cleaning down and the new rope fender fitting back in position to finish off the hull and make it look more like the Hardy 25 it is.









    The removable cabin bulkheads now out of the cabin so that the cabin carpet linings can be glued in position and after these bulkheads have been sanded back and re-varnished they can go back in position and the rest of the interior can go back together.

    The removal bulkheads have been removed and got ready to be rubbed down



    They are now rubbed down and given a coat of thinned down varnish to seal the surface before they are given a couple of stain varnish to make them look like they were when they were originally fitted in the boat when she was build.







    The rubbing strakes getting the same treatment as the handrails on thecabin and wheel house roof.







    They will be oiled like they were when the boat was build 35 years ago,

    The apprentice happy he got this stemhead fitting off as it as been a difficult to remove as the fixings were in a area where getting any tools in to remove the fixings was difficult to say the least.



    Finally off the yacht and the rest of the deck can come up and get sealed and bolted down.







    This is the apprentice next job to fit this new rope fender on the Hardy 25, This job was done by the boss when he worked for the builders of the Hardy range of boat many years ago.

    Just over half of the cabin roof panels re-covered and the cockpit panels as well



    The dividing bulkhead in the forward end of the cabin getting a fresh coat of varnish, before it gets polished and then refitted when the carpet linings are glued in position







    The main roof panel ready to get recovered







    The panel now covered just got to glue the edges over the ends of the panel







    The sliding cabin hatch getting some much needed reworking before it gets a fresh coat of varnish

    Now having got the outer bearing housing off the Morgan Giles 30 it is now on to the internet and suppliers to get a new bearing insert to fit the old bearing housing so that the old stern gear can be used again after a thorough overhauling and a new propeller shaft made to fit the new engine installation



    The fitting even as a position stamp on it to ensure it is put the correct way up







    Well on the way to being refinished






    The removable bulkheads getting a fresh coat of satin varnish before going back in the Hardy 25 when the carpets are glued back in position








    There are a lot of Varnished boards that go in a Hardy 25 Cabin, however once they are in they disappear under Bunk cushions. So much of the hard work that goes into varnishing is hidden from sight.

    The heel fitting finally off after great of cutting and grinding of the joint between the base and the re-movable part of the fitting



    Now it is off the worn out bearing in the heel fitting can be bore out and a new fitting put in the hole and the bottom of the rudder pin can be measured up to ensure it is still in shape







    The two studs which the iron fitting had seized on to, making it difficult to remove and also they are tapered as well







    The rudder loaded in the works van ready to go to the Engineering company to be sorted over the next week.

    The first Carpet limning to fit the on the Chain locker bulkhead and then the rest fit up to this and from this from that bulkhead



    These are all cut to size and now just need gluing in position





    Once these linings are fitted then the removable bulkheads can be refitted and then the rest of the interior can be refitted.




    Now the main cabin carpet linings are now fitted , so in the morning the bulkheads can start to go back in position
