As title. Geoff.

Sorry - all upside down again, but looked ok before posting. Still, at least they should be ok for JDP. Geoff. :classic_wink:

Excellent job Geoff. Can we see some of the whole boat too please? 
I take it the survey went well? Or did I miss that somewhere else? 

I am still awaiting the survey report, but the surveyor told me that in his opinion the build quality was equal to or better than that of most small boat builders, and that he was very impressed with the attention to detail. He did say that the insurance company would require locks on the hatches. He also mentioned the lack of c0 detector, fire extinguisher etc. and electronic equipment - most of which I have indoors, although  I do need more modern electronics. Geoff.

The reason that I did not take any of the whole boat is because it is in a tight location on my driveway. I also want to get a few bits of vinyl bling added. Geoff.

Andy, can you please tell me how to invert the pics. When I open the file on the PC they are fine, but for some reason load upside down. A very confused. Geoff.😣

Out of interest, considering that this project is nearly complete how many more half started projects does that leave you with?

Far too many Jon - too many projects and not enough time!!! Geoff.☺️

I've rotated these ones for you Geoff. In future, you can try editing the pics on your phone. Select something along the lines of Edit, then Rotate, then Save. This should override the orientation settings that your phone applies to the photos when you take them, meaning that they appear in the correct orientation.

Thanks for altering these pics Andy. We will see how the next lot come out - I will wait with baited breath. Geoff. ☺️

Survey and valuation report were fine and the insurance company are happy and now quoted. I am going to insure her tomorrow. The engine has been registered by the Mercury dealer and he has now been informed that there is a possible recall for a part and that I must check out the code on a part somewhere near the dipstick. I cannot remember what the part is, but it is somewhere near the dipstick and it is something to do with the resetting the idle speed when the engine is re-started. Far too many gizmos on these modern motors,but they do look good! Nothing serious, but just a wee bit annoying when I have not yet even tried to start it! Geoff.

Sounds like the Idle control valve (ICV)..... it sets the idle speed as directed from the ECM

It also detects whether you are in troll control mode and also the current being drawn from the alternator and if the current is above a certain threshold it assumes the battery is partially flat and increases the idle RPM to charge the battery quicker. The ICV is controlled from the ECM (Engine Control Module).

Thanks GPS. I managed the engine hood off this evening and took the code (it is the ICV) and will  give it to the dealer on Monday, so I will find out then if it has to be replaced. Geoff.☺️
