Our new project. An 1980 Glass Marlin 17ft doer upper with a 1980 80hp Mercury hanging of the back.
1 That's where a shed is for. A car and a boat :-)
4 Cabin top damage.
5 Repaired the roof of the cabin.
7 A rod holder hole area damage and gang board damage.
8 Rear deck where the rod holder was is now fully repaired.
9 Soft spot on the gang board. Moulding removed exposing some silicone. The beat in the windows rubber is missing
10 Cabin top damage. There was an attempt to fix the corner.
11 The rotten cabin roof overhang repaired.
12 Some decking timber has been replaced with just outdoor ply (H3 treated). Mouldings are glued and screwed with a mix of silicone and Selly's no more gaps.
13 Repaired the wooden bump rail with new wood and also some deck repairs.
14 All the windows removed.

22 Top windscreen fitted. Note the newly made cabin hatch.
23 New pedestals for the seats.

26 Just before I started to pull it apart. The switch box is faulty with No 3 and 4 not firing.
27 Wires from the ignition module well and trully buggered.
28 The new switch box fitted with, on the left hand side, the new wires coming from the ignition module. After fitting a new rectifier the battery was still not charging. Reason: again wire rot in the alternator wires (yellow).
29 Closeup of the alternator wires.
30 Stripped the wire harness and replaced the rotten alternator wires.
31 The power head is taken off.
32 Hole in the exhaust baffle and the reason why water was getting in number 3 and 4 cylinder.
33 Number 1 and 2 cylinder exhaust area looks nice and greasy while number 3 and 4 are completely washed out from the water leak in the exhaust baffle.
34 Clearly the left two sparkplugs from No3 and 4 cylinder have never fired due to water getting into the cylinders.
