That's one hell of a pad on the bottom of your boat, what the history of it

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..
Nice trip, bit of everything there

A bit of a noob question here!

Does the large planing pad make this a fast hull when you have plenty of stallions hanging of the back of the transom?

No, not really.
Becaus of the large flat area, you will not be able to reduce "wet surface" as much as a deep V hull would by getting more and more lift as the hp ingreases. Therefore this hull most probably will be slower then other hulls are with the same engine. The other way around, this hull shall be planing sooner then all other hulls, if using just little hp.

We expect not to have problems with this, while planning to use a 300hp outboard, which actually is a quite large outboard for the design anyway.

Gentlemen,
Who has a good advice for a deckhatch to be mounted in the floorboard?

We need a strong & watertight one for a reasonable price.
Regards!
W.

would suggest to get a 2nd hand Freeman or Baier aluminium hatch - have 2 in my boat and they are 100 pct watertight plus you can walk/ step on them without breaking the hatch and they provide good grip once you stand on them.
Alternatively but less good on 'grip' and also not 100 pct watertight would be a aluminium deck hatch (for example lewmar has them; these are ones with a window in it) but they are quite slippery if you are frequently standing on it. Maybe I have one still in the garage if that is of any interest (can check if you like)

Pricing of a Freeman or Baier new is most probably not your idea of reasonable (1400-1800 euros)

Actually found the 2 freeman hatches in our RIB via this forum so hopefully somebody has something in the backyard or garage ..... (?)

After a couple of days of hard labour, the floorboard is on it's place...
