Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

[QUOTE=boatman61;1341980]Nice one Alex...
[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3]Have a good run home mate...


hopefully we have sorted out the transmission vibration problem today,.... not reccomended welding in the mud at low tide!

the jack lift mounting bracket is now fully welded and solid as the transom,will test later tonight when the wet stuff comes back!

cheers alex
