SIb, i've used the big brother to martini's and daily ran it on the beach multiple times, as long as the beach is reasonable (not slate shards,granite spikes etc) then its not a problem. Only time we split one was getting it trapped under a coral head at low water in strong tidal current
These boats are very tough.

And how's the launching trailer worked out?

I'm looking forward to seeing it all in action.

I reckon those old bayonet connectors are the best fuel connector anyone has made so far. Definitely the easiest to use with cold wet hands.

I've just fitted the same stuff in BP, I got mine from a mate who has a fab shop, it's anti-fatigue matting for machine operators to stand on, nice & comfy. I saw some in Makro this week, 9.99+vat for about a 6'x4' ish.
