The long awaited Codcraft!
Even the engines got dust on it, see you have your jack plate fitted. Its certainly a big boat, love the tube colour!
Best of luck with it,

Alex

I never doubted you Codders - although it has been the longest build in history, you will have to celebrate with a launch party

Richard,
A lot of folks were doubtful that your boat existed as you never offered up any proof and the way you post leads people to doubt some things you say. I will own up and say that i was one of the doubters as well which is probably not a surprise.
Glad to see your baby is coming together and hopefully it is all going to plan for you and you will be able to get it out on the water soon and have fun.

Putting a boat together to your own design and spec is a lot of fun and quite rewarding so hope you are getting as much out of it as I am.

have fun and take care

How long has the thing actually taken Codders?!! I think that my fuse would have self-ignited a while ago.

In fairness not ALL their fault but engine and electronics been with them a while now!!!

As long as the boat is as good as they say AND to my spec I will give them a break.

Hopefully not TOO thirsty - seems to me when you are using full power ALL the engines end up the same!!!

Bought a load of 2 stroke oil already in 25litre drums,

Yes nice heavy duty A frame on it's way - don't know about weight but 500 litres of fuel ain't going to help!!!
