Nice job. Your range of props is outrageous!

The boats are in the UK, going through customs just now. Still no powerhead though!
Hopefully soon so I can get testing

Fair selection of props now, I might sell a few once I've done some testing, the 70hp likes different ones to the tohatsu

If you think of getting rid of any over hub exhaust props let me know! Wouldn't mind trying something different

Go on then

Hull arrived yesterday, got it inflated and on the trailer and got the shell of the engine on. Just waiting on the powerhead now!

The boat looks absolutely amazng, very pleased with it. Love the carbon nose cone. The floorboards are unbelievably light, can easily hold them both with one hand, must be 6-7kg lighter than the old thundercat.


The transom on the Ceasar is very short, 570mm from the top of transom to bottom of hijackers compared to 640mm for the Thundercat. So I've set the engine up at 50mm above the transom just now which should be good for semi cleavers. Issue is I can only get the lower two bolts in, so I've designed a jacking plate which I'm hoping to have made.



The all black fuel tank in place:


It's got a raised section underneath which means it doesn't sit flat. I'm going to look into getting it cut off so it sits better, and also the filler cap isn't stainless, so that might want changing too.

Yeh would be good to get out for a run with some other thundercats, thinking about organizing a race or cruise of some sort up here too

That's not mine unfortunately, it's coming up to the island though. It's down in Southampton just now getting a custom trailer and the Yamaha 90hp fitted, should be here before the end of the month
