stormchaser

yes, it's almost the same, done some more to it now, the write up was not bad, but like every news item they get details slightly wrong, like everybodies name for instance, still going strong though with 800 hours on the clock i guess the sea trial is over and it's time to start cleaning up the moulds and build so more for other people. posted a couple of pics of another one i was doing just to keep everybody interested

Not sure about the leg (flash prop by the way!), but is that one of those BMW Turbo Diesel V6 based Yanmars?
