Thanks very much! It's had its ups and downs but its certainly been an interesting project, by far the biggest thing I've ever undertaken!
Went out again today, F5 ish - 4ft sea, the exhausts kept barking when following the weather so the engines will need to be dropped further I think. Not going to be easy, there may have to be some transom trimming involved
Heading into wind was still very impressive though, she just ploughed through like there was nothing there at 35 knots, could easily have maintained 40-45 but I'm not pushing it too hard just yet. All that weight certainly helps in that kind of weather!
