What engine options are you considering?

Probably a bit boring for some but a couple of pics, showing the bonding on the bulkheads all adding to the strength, and the newly designed console all ready for the flush fitted electronics, top mount engine controls and engine management system.

Not boring at all - always interesting to see the build process. Maybe Ferryman should take note???

Great stuff and photos please keep them coming. Can you describe the project and spec. so we can put everything into context. Thinking about doing the same thing myself.

Regards,

We have the moulds for a 9mtr and the 6 mtr Carsons and the rights to build.

Basically we own the moulds, we have built a 9mtr for ourselves and have some serious interest in those at the moment.

The 6 mtr you see now in build is for a dive club.

The layout is to their requirements which we change for anybody.

The structure of the hull will not be compromised on, as you can see its a very strong hull of commercial spec.

Boring! Are you mad, this is a forum

Pressman,

Do the ply components get jointed in any way or are they simply bonded butt joints?

Have you planned or built an inboard jet with the 6m hull? My lotto project (funds not secured!) would be a 6.5 - 6.85 inboard jet.

And what about fule tanks? There doesn't seem to be any space between the stiffeners for an underdeck tank.

No they are all jointed like a big jigsaw puzzle really.

We have built an inboard on a leg but not a jet.......yet!
