Dickie Coastguard Conversion
« on: March 13, 2009, 09:11:42 AM »

Good Morning All, I thought i would start my 'conversion log' today of my current project (well one of them!). So far I have completely stripped it down, removed the original propshaft & motor and replacing them with new ones, I have resprayed the upper deck and housing still to fit a planked aft deck and towing bollard etc, then its on to make a barge to tow (this will be next week)

As always, I look forward to your comments and suggestions,

Regards, Dan.
