Mat, quick one, what's the enclosed area in front of the transom? Noticed them on the DL and wondered if it was dry storage?
Cheers

Do you suggest to use equipment use by American Football Team ?
(I'm not talking about helmet )

I asked Seaswift to mount handle on console for passenger.

I think that it is not possible to access this very precious for each man part by those "loop handles". My legs and limited space between seat and console shall prevent it.

But I will use something like that I think:

Not cat protector for relines.

Self-drain lockers are under all seats (exclude jockeys I suppose)
It is probably 100 L tank plus locker plus bilge pump

Unless they've moved them the tank is under deck and forward to offset the weight of the engine. Looks to be quite a big area that could be used for something else.

Spoke with Jamie and took the plunge I think the boat will be a good fit for my diving and family use. They're getting in that back seat for me (deal breaker for the wife if not lol). They were down to four of the 5.9 boats when I ordered. Went with pvc over hypalon. With ontario summers he said I'd get 15-20 years out of tubes so I figure that made more sense price wise.

Jamie is inspecting all the boats when they come back. Any damage is being repaired or replaced at the games expense. The engine is getting inspection and service as well when it comes back.

Complete pleasure dealing with them and now just sadly have to wait until July to get the boat

I have to congratulate my wife on being the greatest dive wife ever. She told me to take Jamie's call and buy the boat while we were waiting to be admitted for our daughter's birth!!!!

Aria Mae and mom are doing great and once she's big enough she can get out on the boat

congrats on your new boat :-)

I have not heard PVC outlasts hypalon in any weather, that is first time i've heard anyone suggest this. maybe the other guys can confirm this as i'd be suspicious of that myself, everyday is a school day though :-)

I'd assume your problem will be sun, we have the other problem here :-)

get pics up when you collect the new toy.

cheers

Probably didn't phrase it right. He said hypalon would still last longer but with our short ontario summers and some sort of protectant spray that I should get a long life out of PVC.

Awesome! Cool lady. It makes it much easier if the missus is supportive of your hobby. Even better if she gets involved.

Congrats on both new arrivals!

T.Diver, congrats on your new arrival (and the boat)!
When a bit bigger, the wee one will love it...although I suspect you'll be busy for a few years
