Spent some time on these boats when the AC was down here in San Diego. I ended up taking as many pictures of the ribs as I did of the AC45's

Actually got to ride on these boats, as was following the main team support boat C2.(twin 350's ! )
So great find and congratulations !
cheers Dal

Remount the motors correctly,

Cut the transom out and install swim deck, add ss rails.

Remove one bolster.

New electronics

Add P pad in the bow

Teak decks

What's wrong? Surprising that team New Zealand messed that up.

Less seating and more deck space? Why?

Ah, will you be trying to appeal to the yachty types? Is this a keep or a flip?

As I said before, build thread! I'm excited for you.

The engines were swapped after the cup for smaller ones and no longer need the jack plates.

The mid bolster is not needed, and the rear seat needs to be moved fwd for access to the swim platform.

I'm keeping the boat, I just put a new lift in for her at the marina

I never realised quite how big your boat was until you posted the shots taken from the deck. That's a serious piece of kit but I'm glad you're paying the fuel bill, not me. Enjoy!
