It's only a touch higher than the plotter.

Yamaha sticker to hide the cables that can be seen through the tint.

You will find that it makes a huge difference while out on the water though.

Since finishing this project it's done over 200nm without a hitch, maybe the lack of a bilge pump was an error but that's now sorted.


The engine just seems to get better and better. The other night myself and the missus took it down to the Green Isle on Loch Shiel, total distance coverered was 19.74nm, I popped in exactly 20l into the Barrus tank and I ran out about 20yrds from the pier, it looks like the magical 1l/nm was achieved

There is a glen down Loch Shiel I visit regularly called Glenaladale, if I take the Orkney Longliner with a Honda 15hp Il use a gallon of fuel but it takes quite a while, if I use the Rib Il use a gallon but get there in jig time.

It all seems relative.

Sorry about the random pictures, just some of the green isle.

On this searider it's the windscreen and not the tubes that has the gaffer tape.

One of the mounting holes had a crack in it which caused a weak point, it failed at Easdale, I've been having to much fun using the boat rather that fixing it.

Thats a shame did that happen while drilling it ? on mine I used self tapping roofing bolts and tap washers the (ones for your bathroom taps) which gives a slight gap between the windscreen and the console to allow water and dirt to escape.

yep, it was a drilling mishap.

I've done exactly the same, it's stainless M5 bolts with an O ring on both sides of the polycarbonate to absorb vibration and allow water to escape.
