thanks for the feedback guys! much appreciated!

J S, as far as top apeed goes it hits about 62-64mph, we are currently testing different props and engine heights. we have a guy from Barrus helping us. to be honest its not as fast as i hoped, however, the hull is built like a tank as it is a prototype and therefore probs has ALOT of extra weight!

Stoo, thanks! im very pleased with the way it turned out, we call it a double ski-pole type thingy! (technical term)

IBWET, you read my mind! the helm seat is indeed over engineered, and like the console, has already been altered, we are trying to continue the style of the ski-pole with the seat.
Thanks for the comments guys!

Hi!The boat looks very smart ! I believe your boat made for lefthanded person, aren't you? So, I would like its to have a jockey seat rather than anything. And, how about a tent for dirty weather?

Best regards, Andrew.

You mean we'll have to sit on the end of a s/s post??? Not my cup of tea, but some fellows might like it!

hello again,
ryabikov_andrew: thanks for your comments, this one is made for a lefty, not myself, but the fellow who wants it. the 8.5m will be for righties! we have some jockey seats in development, but wanted to get this one right first. i must say we hadnt thought about a tent type thing, but certainly will now!

pathalla: Thanks! thats what we thought! i havent seen many ribs with one of these!

Cheers guys!

I thought the console looks kind of BIG, what's the visibility like over the top of it when you're sitting?

The A frame looks real nice, any chance of some close up Pics?

hello there!
we have found our console has what i call, "the marmite effect" people either love it, or hate it! we are currently working on a smaller alternative.

Hightower: the console provides a great amount of protection, you can see over the top when standing, and through the screen when sitting. (depending on height) the helm seat is made to customers requirements.
Thanks for the comments!
