Thanks! took me some time to get it right, replacing, adding and removing ballast. She still has the tendency to 'dive' at full speed but that should get solved when I start welding the cockpit.

The cabin doors had their best years behind them. The varnish was gone and the weather got 'into' the wood. Time to start the re-varnish process!

Materials required:

- Paintbrushes
- Painterstape
- Stripping agent
- Paint strippers
- A 6-pack of beers
- Sanding paper.

regards,

Thom

I mostly do! but I had to cover 315 miles in 3 days so I took the first best feul station I could find. The new feul system I have installed can't end up with clogged feul lines again. The filter element was moved as close to the tank as possible. Before it was about 10 feet from the tank. I don't use additives. Only acetone. Of which I put a little in the tank each feul stop. It gives a more complete combustion in my old engine and it should help with the bacteria too.
