The Motorboat Protex

The Protex has been undergoing a major refit for some considerable time. The work is weather related and valuable work time is lost each working day by taking off and putting on two very large tarpaulins.

A total of 25 replacement cabin top beams have been laminated and fitted, each using five layers of Fijian kauri timber, the timber thankfully was donated by Fleet member Bob Ellis. The replicated camber shaped beams along with replacement companionway and engine room hatch coamings have been fitted and fixed in position, the beams and coamings have had many clear coats of finish applied.
