I've owned this boat for 3 yrs, Trying to find out a little more about it, I see quite a few experts here. I know Peter Kidd designed it and Vector built it. I'd like to take it to France but unsure of the paper work as I can't seem to find a HULL ID Plate. It was built pre the requirement to fit them under MCA Small craft directive.
Does anyone know the in / out of taking it to France, VAT is another challenge I don't have the original paper work, I believe the boat was built for David Pratt in Portsmouth and he used to race it. I know the frogs are pretty hot on VAT and impounding boats.
Running an ETEC 225 HO, bloody great lump plenty of torque, probably a bit over horse powered now:-). The engine is racked quite high and the water pick up for my nose tanks interferes with the prop now. I'm thinking of changing it to a fuel tank to pump fluid / weight about to trim instead of taking on more weight to achieve the same result. Any ideas or done this before??
Attached a couple of pictures encase you know the boat.
Thinking of heading down the Silly Isles this summer as it removes the challenges above.
Cheers for now
