I'd PM jwalker to get the view of somebody who's actually got one, otherwise you're just getting "brochure advice". Chrisallse was planning to get one as well - don't know if he's fitted it yet.

Well ive just come back from geurnsey. Boat is on order, should get the money to him tomoro morning.

The boat are amazing. The 6.5m hull is the dam deepest vee ive ever seen at 26 degrees!
All the others are at 23 degrees, still deeper than most other boats though.

It really is a shed ther're working from but everything seems well finished. didnt get a sea trial, but it was blowing a force 5 so it wouldn't have been all too pleasant.

Ian, im having a Garmin 176 plotter, 160 fishfinder????? i think, and a XM DSC radio.

I see there is a big thread all about how poor the 160 fishfinder is but Jason mounts the transponders into the hull so there is no problems with is flicking up at high speed etc.

Still unsure of delivery time but he says he'll get my hull layed up before they start the 10m rib.

Uh? Ideal RIB testing weather! No point in testing in anything less, really.

That would sort of put a damper on the proceedings!
