Very very nice Steve and no doubt a very good engine to go with it. I am sure you will have good fun.
What I just don't understand however is why you don't have a backrest for the helmsman and navigator. Good to have a back support in heavy weather whether you are sitting or standing

unless this is still to be fitted
