Thank you for your encouragement  :-)) , heres a another picture of my latest parts made and added, ive now added a new black rubber fender around the hull, a new and better looking chain guide at the bow and a new roller behind that, the roller and guide are completely fabricated from many parts and sanded and shaped.

Hi all, constructed the two large  whip aerials today, most parts are aluminium tube, a brass sleeve was made into the bracket which holds the legs thats glued into position, next step some paint.

 :((   put the tyne on the kids garden pool today, found it needed very little ballast which i thought was a good thing, secondly i found i had to put a lager main fuse in, i now have a 25 amp, but the most disturbing of all, it bloody leaks, can only be from around where the shaft go through aaaaaahhhhhh.

Traced the point where the leak is entering the hull, now to etch a plan for the repair, fiber glass is looking the best option to me, but it means another set back  {:-{

Hi, excuse my forgetfulness but looking back to early posts I can't remember if you built on a PS hull from sarik or a grp one from elsewhere?  Where's the leaks coming from?  It's looking very fantastic anyway.

Hi, Rich.
Its been so long now from when i purchased the hull i cant remember where i actually purchased it, its a thin plastic hull. the leak appears to be from the area where i put the port side shaft through the hull...BUT, i now have worse things to fix, in my attempt to try and fix the leak i put a good lump of evostick gripall around the area of the leak DO NOT DO THIS ,, it generates heat and over a couple of days has destroyed the plastic and now has no strength or stability a massive rebuild is now on the cards. lots of tears and choice words around my garden...
 <:( <:( <:( <:(

Hi,
Correct me if I'm wrong but if it's the green Evo Stik "Gripfill"(?, I can't find Gripall?) that might be a problem.  I see on BnQ website it's advertised as solvent based and in the Evo Stik TDS is says "not suitable for EPS" -which is usually an indicator it's got solvents in there and unless it cures quick and they wick-out quickly / not applied too thick it can cause problems over longer term.  It does sound a bit like a PS vac-forming to me.  I have 5 or 6 hulls from Sarik at least some are described as ABS but they all seem to be in PS so far.  Not that there's anything wrong with that!  I kow some folk are using building adhesives quite OK but I'm struggling a bit with them so far.

I think you're better posting some pictures of the area.  At least also, now the stuff is in there it might be more hassle than it's worth to remove and just cope / repair around it after it's left long enough for the solvents to come out.  Depending where it is also of course the beuty of PS is that it's often repairable.

I can imagine you cursing like a wounded pirate, I think we've all been there at some point!

Hi Rich
You are correct i did use Gripfill, guess thats what happens when i rush into getting my woes onto the web, ive managed to remove all the gripfill from the damaged area and started to put my repair plan into action, whilst im doing this im also improving some old work so, as it stands some work ahead.

I would test the repair before applying paint, just to save any issues with the repair.
If it is wood make sure its sealed.
