Domino double six

I recently scanned some old slides and came across these.
Considering I assembled it myself from a kit, this boat never ceased to amaze me, we used it for diving all year around. It could take four divers on a plane, six at slower pace, I think at a time we were 11 persons on board. We also did waterskiing all year, sometimes in a couple of metre waves. The gearbox of this Evinrude only lasted a couple of years before the gearbox broke, apparently it did not like the way the prop went in and out of the water all the time I had it modified with a racing kit with proper thrust bearings instead of the original shims, but in the end it was replaced by a 30hp Yamaha, never had any trouble with that The Domino was used until '92, I think, when I got the SR4, it is still in the basement, though, the hypalon (and the neoprene) on the stbd. tube where I used to sit is worn down to the cord...
Anybody else here built one of those Domino kits?
What happened to Domino Inflatables?

Never heard of the SIB kit, but you may not be surprised to hear I have rebuilt the gearbox on one of those Johnsorude 25s.......

The split case is a class 1 PITA to seal!

I was hoping, since it had the same block and some other parts as the '35HP, that it would be more robust, but I had a lot of problems with that engine

Hi,
here is a scan of the original manual, the floorboards came cut to size, so the drawings are not very good for measurements, but I'll post a few pictures of the surviving boards. They were made from 3/8" marine ply, but I replaced them with 1/2" later. The side stringers were made from aluminium U-profile, but I made an improved version with stainless steelplate.

Is the inflatable keel also missing? I can't remember what happened to mine, it may be bundled up with the rest of the boat in a dark corner of my basement, or it could have been cut up for patches. I think the same size Zodiac had a similar keel and the Bombard had one made from plywood.
The transom stays were made from 1" X 1/4" aluminum strip, but I replaced those with 1/2" 316 Stainless steel tubing.

Hello Colin
I have an original and complete Domino six that I am about to restore. If you need any dimensions of the floor etc let me know. Or if you fancy a visit to the Sheffield area you are more than welcome to come up to measure them.
