I have fitted lifting eyes to the front floor sections and eyes to the transom and had that tested for lifting before, but if it were a realistic option I would lift from the transom and with a sling under the 2nd floor panel. [/QUOTE]

As I have my QS back from English Channel adventure I am going to use QS for hydrographic survey and diving works. I think I will make a frame to be lifted by fork lift, we have no sleep way in our harbour. Good luck with your project. Ryszard

Much of the spec is dictated by the harbour authority, in order to be a workboat it needs to be nearly coded.

The small engine is because it will never leave the harbour, so with a 4 knot speed limit a robust 15 should do nicely.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the reminder.

Things have slowed for the Chrimbo break at the moment, the latest thing we did was start fitting the seat/box - made from 9mm ply undercoated, epoxied then top coated.

The bow tent is next on the list.

Thanks for posting more pics. I'm really interested in how you have made the internal frame on the bow tent. Is it rigid? Does the frame go all the way around the bottom? I was stuck on the idea of a bow cover for my boat that was supported by a frame attached to the floor. This internal frame design looks really good. Do you have any concerns regarding chafing between the plywood seat and the tubes? I have avoided contact between my custom console and the tubes completely. Maybe that is not as big of a deal as I thought? So cool to see someone with experience making modifications, Thanks again.

It is just plastic pipe, fairly rigid but with plenty of give. The top edge would normally be curved but a flat surface was needed on this one for signage.

I have a photo of the dodger being made, I will post it when I find it.
