Nice to have the two boats together. It's amazing to see how alike they are. Got abit of work to do on the D class before it goes back.

Look great Samt. How do you get on with a 15hp compared to 20hp?

Cheers

I had a 25hp on it, and yes it was a 3/4 knots quicker, and would plane with a heavier load, but I find the 15hp handles better and suits the boat better.. Plus its easier lifting in and out the car as I take the engine away with me when the boats in the boat yard.

Hello. I have a few question I'm sure someone can help me with.

Is the floor bottle screws best tighten when boat is deflated or inflated?

In the photos up can see the brass towing eyelets touching the tube is this normal? The floor seems to ride up toward the bow.

Last question, is there any particular reason why my hull valve isn't in the middle of the hole is the floor?

Many thanks

When inflated:-

If not you could over tighten it whilst everything is loose and damage the sponsons.

They often aren't in the centre. When the keel is deflated you can try and move it about a little but as long as it's accessible it'll be ok.
