Refitting Boat

Hi all,

I am about to rip my boat out and re fit everything! Mad I know!

Am I better off going to a boat shop and asking them to get all the parts and bits or would I be better of spending some time looking around and ordering from different websites to save money?

Tom

Refitting Boat

I would do it myself but it takes longer depending on the time you have to invest in research.

I use ebaymotors-parts and accessories-boat parts- sailing hardware
Also defender and Hamilton for most parts I need.

What's the problem? Be careful: You don't make to large of a project, that you miss out on sailing! Maybe a different Boat?......Dale

Re: Refitting Boat

Its just getting a bit old and worn down now so thought I would go and refit it to give it a new lease of life!

Re: Refitting Boat

Thats a powerboat right? not quite the same as refitting a sail boat. I did not think they even had any wood on them just gelcoat and upholstery.
