    Now once the rear decking was fixed in place I moved on to the centre deck section. I kept the original deck as mentioned earlier, this fitted ok and had all the railing holes in position. I scraped
    all the paint off and recoated with fresh while it was off as this was easier to rework. New supports were made for the deck and extra plastic angle strips were added to stiffen the deck up.
    The deck was then fitted and new combing around the main access area glued in place. This served 2 jobs, 1 to stop water entering the hull from off the deck area and 2 to help locate the main superstructure that was to be left loose for access to the radio gear, battery and motors.
    The bow decking was then renewed and fitted plus the upstand joining the two decks, forward of the superstructure
    The next job was to use the old bow bulwarks as templates to produce new left and right hand sides.offering them up a couple of times before being happy with the fit. The bow was then fitted plus a couple of bulwark ribs to strengthen the sections while the glue set.Then extra ribs were added as the original and this strengthened the whole structure no end

    That looks much better Roger๐Ÿ‘
    I'm assuming that pic 7 shows the 'Before'.
    "... locate the main superstructure that was to be left loose for access to the radio gear, battery and motors."
    Loose!?๐Ÿ˜ฎ How about holding it down with some small neodymium magnets?
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I just noticed the bow thruster, not being familiar with this model, was this an upgrade or addition?

    Yes it was one of the earlier photos taken of the boat when first came into my dry dock.To help with placing parts stripped off. Little did i know it would not stop until i had nearly a bare hull. It did come apart quite easy as the glue was very old.the boat had been passed through several owners,some i assume were plasterers,lumberjacks and someone too strong for delicate work or certainly not boat modellers any way. But hopefully i have restored it to the state these previous owners would have liked, im certainly happy with it.
    Noting your comment about the magnets. The combing is quite tight around the inside edge of the superstructure and holds it very firmly, and i feel is not required.But thanks for the idea i feel it will help in holding down the rear deck on my Aziz.which due to the design takes in quite a bit of water when the water is choppy,as it is a flush fit with no upstand of combing.

    The bow thruster i think was part of the original build/ kit of parts as it is shown on the set of build plans i have obtained.although i did not have the boat from scratch, it was built up when purchased.
