thanks,

in all honesty i did spend alot of time think and toying with ideas and working out what i wanted and what ideas i was taking from my old boat and looking at others.

only thing i am not happy with is the top moulding of the console, it is bad, so thinking of replacing with a new one.

will post more pics as i scale them down...

i am liking the cummins engine alot.

i am still breaking it in so not going full revs, but i am getting 27 / 28 knots cruising speed using 17 liters an hour. thats 900 rpm off full

that is an un-calibrated fuel reading as i have to run the tank down to see if it reading correct, but seems a good figure.
