What a Pig of a boat. I would say it would wallow somewhat.
Looks very top heavy, would suggest very unstable and dangerous.

well its somebodys pride and joy, they spent a lot of time creating it judging by the build thread and put in a lot of effort

if they have fun then good luck to them. they might be short of cash to buy what they would really like.

poor mans rayglass!

That was a lot of work, and it doesn't really appeal to me.

BUT.

I agree with Hugh, the guy couldn't afford what he wanted so built his own. I like that mentality and have employed it myself.

I congratulate him.

Whats with the big pointy bit though?

i think it is for cutting thru the air at speed as well as a unique design concept and for mounting the anchor

fair play to the guy, not my cupt of t

Can't say I've ever seen a heli-pad on the front of an Avon before.
