Gonna watch with interest..........lekka thread and don't stop Andy.
Thanks to those reading and commenting.
Couple of things in stock that are lined up for installation:
1. 75lb Trolling Motor NIB
2. New carpet Dark Grey
3. New carpet edging rubber strip 10m
4. 3mm memory foam 2 sheets (thanks Navrik)
5. 5 liters contact adhesive.
6. two new batteries 102Ah threaded connections

Looking for...

Hatch handles. Specifically looking for those dark grey plastic cups with the half moon recess. Hope that's a decent description. Looking for 9off. Where to please?
As far as the carpet glue goes I was recommened the Kehl's carpet adhesive. Be carefull not to spread too thick was it will seep through the carpet.

You can get automotive carpet from them as well. I know some guys use Ranger carpets but at a premium.

After some research and speaking to someone who has done a review on them them as well as an expert with renewalble energy projects I have settled on 2 x 85Ah Discover batteries. According to reviews they perform better than other brands 105 Ah batteries, last 3 times longer and you end up saving 6kg of weight. I get through a full day with the wind pumping without any hassles.

I would also recommend the following foam for underneath:

Sondor SVA45 5mm foam

Looking very nice!!
Nothing better than working on your boat
I know this boat very well. I fished on her in my first Nationals for Boland at Albert Falls dam. That one 130v4 is a beauty. Great boat. i have the same hull with a Yamaha 150V6, which i am restoring as well. please post final pics of the boat if you can. i would love to see what she look like now.
