Still not finished!

Really getting the hump with it now,,,,,,

I want the wiring to be spot on to complete the build, I personally can not do it, so bloody frustrating it really is,,,

a) I can not get in the console cos am a fat git,
b) after suffering from a near death diagnosis of septal cellulitis 3 years ago I am colour blind,,,,,, great for wiring lol


She is all up n running, but without all the instrument gauges working , well not correctly as of yet,
Think it's water time next weekend ( it s my birthday after all ) weather permiting then i I will let her go as is, should make some one a real nice safe vessel,

Already got my next project in the bag,

last post i promise...

finally got it wet,:

bloody mavellous as uncle benny would say

it run like a sewing machine, no problems appart from some play in the steering, air me finks,,,,,,,, fuel gauges to sort , but appart from that it did me proud, shame it was not a bit rougher to really abuse her, but chuff me it goes on plane so easy and it was holding 200ltrs of fuel at the start out,

i only had my hand help gps with me not got round to fitting my main as of yet, 53mph 46 knots, liking it

best thing as i have a weird fuel gauge on one tank 30mins hammering it the fuel tank was self filling,i wish150.00 soon dispersed, but hey who gives a hoot, and i was abusing it as you do

1 nights graft on gps and some tidying its a done an dusted build,

only bad point of the day is my stupid assistant,whilst i fetched the range he sat all my dry clobber on the deck out of there nice clean dry storage area, err any one who owns or been on an atlantic would no better, my phone camera etc is err wet like



now where is the summer
