Got a few more jobs done this weekend, bases for the seats are made, just waiting for more hinges to arrive.

Did the dreaded job of drilling a hole in the transom for the drain. As mike said it would be dry as a bone in there. He recommended not to fit one but i would hate to be worrying about water getting in the hull from the deck and the hull filling up over time.

Fitted protex hinges to the various lids etc. I must say the protex catchs and locks are extremely good and well made, well worth the money.

i would have to say that,
the phrase just add water is now suitable, excellent job chris,
i must admit i enjoyed building mine, and can certainly see me buying another one before the year is out, some thing smaller though,

neary there, the diligent will spot some self tappers in there as a temp fix until i work out the dimensions of all the stainless bolts and machine screws needed to finish the job. getting really close now and getting quite excited i must say.

self tappers are great cos you can put some smaller diameter ones in, then when the proper bolts arrive then bore out the hole to the full size needed and fit the nice new bolts and machine screws

Rivets are ok when fitting sheet materials together but most of my fittings are going into fibreglass which has an inch of marine ply behind it.

Riveting on the Aframe would be novel!!

I prefer to use a4 stainless bolts with countersunk or cheese head allen key drive for the smaller ones as they look better. i love my washers and nylon insert nuts for knowing it is done up just right!
