Ok, sold again on gemini. Can you get seats in the boat or across the tubes so you are a little higher and easier on the knees and back?

At least the size of your arse nearly matches your elevation. I am still working on that problem. However, low COG is good.

One of my planned modifications is to fabricate an open, aluminum framed jerry can cradle/jockey seat with a front aluminum grab rail, that is a removeable system. Something like this;

I think you are asking about my boat!
Yes I use a tiller extension when it is just me going flat out or it means I can sit on the seat up front keeping the bow down! (I have a mile long trip to my mooring when down in Salcombe!)
It is standard shaft, but I have raised the engine as I got water coming in over the transom then going flat out with light load!
It is very deep compared to other Sib's!

Ah .. cheers, so yours isnt the airdeck then Nick ?, and was the engine leg the cause of water coming in when under way ? I see how you've raised it

Looks like a blast Matt.
Now the Long Haired Colonel has been suggesting that we get a SIB for when the kids go rag and stick ing and there is no access for the RIB. Mmmmmm

Those drain trunks are interesting. I haven't seen anything like that over here in the US, are they common? How do they do with inflow when at rest or idling?
