Hi Martini,

Don't forget to make the bolts of the lifting points(through the hull) watertight. I've took out mine and the "glue"between the plates/bolts and hull wasn't sufficient. Saves a lot of work and time instead of being in the water.

The deck of our Arctic is out too now, Emptying the aft tank and remove it is the next step. After that we have to consider which engine it will be. Have three options:
1 Yamaha ME432 315hp
2 Yanmar 6ly2a 440hp to Konrad sterndrive
3 Iveco NEF370 to Konrad sterndrive.

Console and seats roughly in position, starting to look like a rib now!

Would anyone like to voice their opinion on the position of them? Does it look about right? Difficult to tell without the tubes on I know.

Theres so many factors to consider, weight distribution probably the most important but theres no point in me even trying to figure that one out before it goes in the water.

I guess the further forward the better in that respect but I would be compromising comfort as well. Theres the fuel fillers and tank access covers to consider as well but I'm trying not to let them influence me too much as they can all be moved.

I'm thinking along the lines of "if it looks right it probably is"

Looking good, maybe the whole a little more to the stern. But as you said, difficult when you haven't gad her in the water yet. The whole looks superb. Here a little paint action of myself with one of your pics, about the idea of our boat

Are you going to build your own console then? This was my original plan as I couldnt find what I wanted. But then I saw a Parker 900 and was sold, probably my best decision of the whole project!

A few more from the weekend:

1/ Inside the console, fuel filler on the left. On the right I made a grp moulding and glassed it in with an Index Marine box stuck on the back. All is revealed in the next pic!

2/ Blue Sea CB panel with battery switches tucked out of the way behind a waterproof hatch so both sides of the panel are watertight. To the left of the panel is a 12v socket and 2 LED's which are charge indicators for the pair of automatic charge relays which are to be installed in another Index box below.

3/ Again with fuel filler.

4/ My young apprentice, always happy to blow the dust away with an airline, should the need arise!!

1/ The other fuel filler in the seat

2/ Aft tank fitted. You can see the old filler neck cut down and capped off and a new one welded in a couple of foot further forward.

3/ Access hatch has 2 pick-ups so I can run either motor from this tank using hydraulic type quick disconnects. Also fitted is my new smartcraft compatable sender unit.

I would be inclined to move the rear double jockeys slightly aft so there is some knee room between front and rear pods. Makes it easier for people to get onto them and makes for a little bit of space so the don't knwock the driver when you're bouncing around.

I wanted to but then the grab rails on the back of the front seats are to far away so I've gone for just enough room to easily slip one foot through between the seats when you get on and off.

Just finished making a pair of 60 degree glands for the rigging hoses, they seem to work well.

I bought the Mercury kit for opti/verado and cut the flange off the gland that came with it. The threaded bit thats left fits perfectly inside a bit of 3" stainless tube I had kicking round.

I bought 2 rigging kits but I only need 1 length of hose so the other ones going spare if anyone's looking for some. Think its a metre long 50mm id
