Nice Job
I had a similar set up (older model) for some years and covered MANY miles.
They are pretty capable craft...(within limits)...easy/cheap to run,and Great fun.
All the best with her!

Yep, picked up all my bits. Trailer is almost customised so I'm counting down the days now. I've got the first week in March off work so want to get her as wet as possible that week, but can't wait that long so hopefully this coming week or the week after.
Great don't forget the pics

It's interlocking foam tiles off eBay 16 for six I got the ones with holes in to catch grit save it going under the floor and just vaccume out. Kinder on the knees.

I thought that's what it was, I've got loads of these spare in the shed. Makes it look a lot more comfy inside the boat.

Looks good Jeff. Rain stopped play for me today, so I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped. Still I've got Friday, Sunday and next Monday off work.

Up date on performance up at loch sween last week cracking conditions at the beginning of the week so did some test runs on a surface like glass.
43 ltrs of fuel
Me one up = to 1.5 big lad
40-50 kg of kit
Max GPS speed 22 knots @ 5640 rpm.
Starts planing at 9-10 knots very quickly
Stays on the plane in the chop at 12 knots.
Crusing at 15 knots 3600 rpm.
Prop 101/4 x 11
I didn't look at fuel consumption as 43 ltrs will take me anywhere I need to go
I might come down a pitch on a spare prop undecided as yet.
Overall performance is a lot better regarding the bow twitch with a lot more weight up front and eliminated when I sit starboard side compensation for prop torque I guess.
The new trailer has made life very easy being so low I can launch knee deep now well worth the change.

Missed you!! I'm up at the moment enjoying the sun. Where did you stay? Glad you had a good week.
See you at ERR
