Drive showers are almost considered essential for the bravo 3 drive.

You can buy a kit, or have a simple pipe fabricated.

Good to see the boat getting ready for fun, did you ever try the different props on your boat, I have been talking to Gary this week looking at prop ideas /options for our boat.

I have now moved the engine up so that the plate is level with the hull line. Props the next job

OK, no bites for an Easdale loaner* but we DID get an invite to sit in for one of her shakedown runs today.

The Flying Test Monkeys fly again....

It's an interesting boat for lots of reason. 10.5m with twin 440 Yanmars and Hamilton jets. The hull is a modified 11m (IIRC) with an raised top "strake" section and carries a full tube. The jet drives have worked well and I saw over 42kts on the plotter during flat water runs. People who know about these things say she is very easy to handle, tracks and loiters well.

Yeah, a top day. Thanks to our various benefactors, not least Bríd who made us toasties and tea when body and soul were just about to wave goodbye to each other
