It's looking more and more like a boat Slim Tim, nice rigging job so far, I think you will appreciate the extra thick pad on your seat over time, extra padding never hurts!

Thanks for the comments guys!

Tim, yes it will have a back rest eventually. I've sent drawings off to companies for quotes but sometimes I just feel like I'm bashing my head against a brick wall!

The only company to get back to me promptly was marine fabrications (The one Hugh Jardon used) with a quote of 137 + 25 P&P. Another company informed me yesterday that they would be charging 283+VAT for the same job HOw they can justify charging that much I really don't know!

More updates soon I hope.

Tim

Good Luck Tim,I hope the weather is fine for you.It may be worth taking in the car some kind of ballast with you i.e spare chain several small strong plastic bags with sand or gravel to iron out any handling problems.Although i know mine is 6.2 and different set up .I did have bad chine walk at about 50mph now handles great 50+ with 30 kg and anchor and chain in bow locker

thanks guys!

Bit too late to update now, was outside working on the boat until I couldn't see any more.

I will find some time over the weekend to update with the last few build pics and the first few launch/buzzing about pics.

Tim
