OK, little update then.
Must confess, actually we're busy to build a new vessel..

Hull has been sanded to the glassfiber.
Then we corrected all the old damages on sprayrails, etc, with home mixed epoxy resin glue, which has been sanded with the belt machine to make things straight and have correct angled hooks again.

After that, we doubled the complete hull with 320gr woven layers of glass, which has been finished with a double 25gr woven glassfiber (out of one piece fabric from the back to the front).

As a finish, the complete boat got a nice thick new layer of coloured (UV-res) epoxy-gel, which has been sanded and straightened again and then got a second layer of coloured epoxy-gel.

In january, the complete hull will get a epoxy based lacker in the same colour to finish like new.

The deckplate is ready to be made to fit next friday: 2000x6000x6mm 5083 alu (about 200kg).

Also the stainless steel fueltank is ready te be mounted: 329l we hope to be enough for weekend trips.

In spring, the tube will be mounted, which is waiting in a big big box allready.
New made in UK by Paul Tilley. Matt black with navy-grey wear patches.

That's about the update I can give.
Regards from the Netherlands!

It's custom made stainless steel and has a network of stringers and baffles inside.
We live at the side of a river, which runs into a big lake and then into the Northsea.
A trip we usually did with a previous boat, was to go to one of the touristic Dutch islands at the and back. That's about 300km total. This tank has been designed to make us able to day that without refueling..
