A Wolf is born...

Got the first photos this morning

Still one or two fairly significant bits to be fitted yet, but it's definitely starting to look like a boat

Off to get the bling fitted on Thursday, and the kelp-stirrer is meant to turn up about the end of the week.

Can't wait!

Not finished yet though, needs the black wingback seats and a bit of bling to hang the traffic lights off, for the final look

What do the assembled audience reckon for where to put names - one on the front of the console and one on the transom? That's the only bit I've not really got settled in my mind.

The A-frame is a compilation of the best ideas I have seen on RIBnet, and the electronics are sorted - Garmin 556s plotter/sounder with a through-hull transducer, Icom IC-M411 DSC VHF (I wanted a 421 but they are no longer available in black) and the E-tec I-command gauges, plus a blank space on the console for future use. Also looking at one of those active AIS aerials at a later date to provide AIS input to the plotter, but I am not getting that just yet in case something else comes up.
