CH-jumped here as promised

I'm doin' ok. Been building the trailer. I got held back a couple of weeks ago so it's taken a while. However, just finishing some of the fiddly bits - mountings for mudguards, rollers etc. It'll be complete this weekend and off for galvanising when it can be collected. The boat will have the DPX mounted during the week. I've been looking into moving the engine forward about 1.5mtrs. Partly to better balance the boat but it also may provide a few other benefits. There'll be a large seating area at the back which could be arranged in various ways. No decisions yet. It also means that only one large hole need be cut through the deck. The 2 tanks can go in and be pushed forward and the third can be pushed back. It'll leave access, in the engine compartment, to all their connections and the pumping system. The engine housing can be better vented to prevent water ingress. If I build the engine housing with a flat top it will make a good table or a place to strap the wee inflatable etc. Improved access to the wing engine and the sterndrive. Lots of good reasons. Help my brain out and give me all the reasons that it's not such a good idea.
How about yourself? Your new boat looks the business. It'll be heavy with all that gear but I can imagine being anchored in a sheltered bay in the Outer Islands with deep blue water below one, a glass of Macallan in the hand, feet kicked up onto the tubes and the red sun just dipping down to the horizon.

Oh gawd, I'm off to me bed so's I can continue dreaming.
Night night.
JW.

She aint that Heavy as she is alli, but you got it in one as far as the deep blue outer Islands.

I will have a look at your post tommorow and have a think and email you any ideas. It sure sound interesting.
