I like the way the thwart is being used to seperate the bow area for storage .
What have you got fitted blow the thwart , looks like speakers . is it a box for the vhf etc .

Hi Andrew

I imagine your QS goes well with a 40hp!

I'd like to know how well it tows a wakeboard, does the boat get pulled around a lot?

How did you secure the tow rope to the transom?

Hoping to try it from my SIB sometime soon and I'm interested to hear how well your setup works

BTW if the pics are showing "6ft swells" how would you describe flat calm?

Under the seat I built a box from marine ply and coated it with "watertite" sealer and painted it to match the seat, in the box there is a Cobra VHF radio, a Sony CD player with a waterproof face and two 300Watt Marine speakers from Fusion, In the back of the box there is a small storage area for phones etc.. also there are all the switchs for nav lights, search lights.

The boat goes very fast and fells solid with the 40hp, she tows better than i thought, the wakeboard doesnt pull the boat one bit, I also tow a ring again with no problems,

(i will take more detailed pictures next time i get down there)

Where the boat is beached is in white bay(Cork Harbour),which is just next to fort Carlisle, the winds where from the north so all those swell where in the channel, the bay was sheltered, it was fairly wet and wild heading back to crosshaven!

also i have some more pics and videos ;
