Up and running - and all going well.

Have not seen her on the water myself yet, but just got these photos.

Looking good Adam

Is the console grp?

Any feedback on performance and handling etc yet?

My next project (if I'm daft enough to put myself through all that again!) would hopefully be an all aluminium version of my current (Arctic28)

Hi
The console, bolster seat and rear bench seat are all fabricated Aluminium!

I went out on her fairly soon after she was launched - and very pleased with her general performance. We were running around 55 mph, but more to come from prop work and also the engine is mounted fairly low. Really set-up as a quick cruising boat.

Handling felt very good - hopefully will get to test her in some rough water soon and also get some action photos. All credit to the owner and builder, Frank McLean, he has done a fantastic job and the boat just feels so solid. Aluminium fabrication work is about as good as you are going to see.

Will post some new photos as and when!

Good luck if you go for the Ali Artic 28!
