Looking superb! And thanks for the heads-up on those gaskets, ours really does need to come out this year for a thorough inspection so I'll add that to the list.

Re rubbing strake, this is the only info I have in my records: Trend marine (original oem supplier) part number is RP023.

Cheers,
Chris

Wilks offer samples, I've never used them myself but maybe worth a look?

thanks ill give them a try ... getting harder finding parts it seems for these boats !

Heres a picture of the aft cabin now. Just waiting on carpets tomorrow

Ive had the headboard and side panels re-upholstered the same fabric to break up the colours , the mattress and side cushions are all the same too but not fitting them back just yet as still working on the exhaust hull fittings. And yes they were heavily perished so make sure you get yours checked !!!

ill take a photo of the old ones

stay tuned for more turbo pics :lol:

OK so here are the original stainless steel skin fittings for the exhausts. Its well worth checking yours, mine were slightly seeping.

I was quoted £660 for these to be re-made but found a guy locally here that can do them for £350 for the pair.

Just take a look at that corrosion !!!! both were the same

more pics to follow of more stainless upgrades to the Turbo that you might find a great idea ! :D
