Fury 25 rebuild

Postby goldslinger » Mon Dec 05, 2016 11:05 pm

hi all i thought it was time i started this thread
i have just bought a Fury 25 Project boat
it will be easier to say what it has got rather than what it hasn't got
we have a hull with some windows but not all of them
a lovely peeling paint job (Dulux i think )
most of the cupboards but only two of the draws
a toilet with sea cock and a sink
and that's about it oh yes a fern growing under the table
i know that the hull is sound as it was holding (about two foot ) water inside
(the cabin is open at the stern it is missing the whole back wall ??)
so what cupboards i do have are totally water logged along with the table top which was floating around
oh yes i have part of the sun deck roof
so i have a bit of work to do before she sees the water lol

Hi, further to your request for more info on your Fury, there is a picture (advertising) of what I believe to be a Fury on ebay - item no. 40124154778. This picture was cut from a magazine so it is quite possible that he may have a contemporary magazine with more pictures and info. Under contact details at the end of the listing is the sellers phone no. I have tried ringing it, but no answer - probably worth trying outside of working hours. I hope this may be of some help. Good luck. Geoff.

thanks for the info
tried the number (40124154778) in e-bay search and it came up not found
but i found this site which had some good archives for a reasonable price which gave me some good info on what the boat originally looked like

Good morning. Most strange, it does not come up for me on an item no. search either, but I remembered that it was originally from a Peters ad. I typed into ebay Fairline South Peters advert and it came up straight away.
Anyway, I am pleased that your are getting somewhere in your search. Geoff.

Hi all
well i have made a start on the boat as you can see from the pictures
the the kick board at the bottom of the cupboards was rotten so i had to take off the worktop then i could remove the fronts of the cupboards to eventually get to the kick board and remove that i just need to clean up the old fiber glass ready for the new kick board to be glassed in
next was to start on what was left of the rear bulkhead first off by removing the molded cabin seats followed by there supports
then it was onto removing what was left of the rear bulkhead which was truly rotten as you can see and also the supports to the area that held the fuel tank what a mess
now to the bit that i was not looking forward to doing cutting up the floor and removing the ferns
so far i have taken up the main floor area hopping that i would not have to take the rest up but no the whole lot has to come up it doesn't show very well in the pictures but under the floor there is some expanding foam partially covering the hull which is sodden and has soaked into the stringers also the previous owner had cut into the main stringer and removed some of the fiberglass from around it so it looks like i am going to have to replace all the stringers which means i will have to take all the floors up and remove the bulkhead to the head and the forward cabin
oh what joy

Hi all sorry for the lack of up dates the weather has been too cold
i did manage to get out there last weekend and do a spot more
after removing the foam from around the central rib i discovered that on the part of the deck i had taken up
the rib had not been fiber glassed in (see drawing )
the bottom of the rib had tabs to the hull but had not been sealed with a top cover of fiber glass
so i removed the head walls and took up the deck as far as the forward cabin only to find it was even worse
when they put in the expanding foam this had gone under the top piece of fiber glass and completely lifted it off the rib altogether what a state (see pic )
looks like i will have to go into the forward cabin to get to the end of the rib and replace the whole binkin lot

Hi, glad to see that you have been sticking (unsticking??) with it. I know that with this restoring lark, the more you dig, the further you have to!!! I am sure that once you have managed to clear the rubbish out, re-assembly will be an easier task. Always lots to do though, but I think you are doing very well. Well done and keep the piccies coming. Geoff.

Sorry to hear that you injured yourself. I hope that you will soon be recovered and able to continue with your interesting re-build. I look forward to your next lot of pics. Geoff.
