I recently suggested it might be a struggle to fit a blue rizla between the motors but nobody was biting

My 'Lash-up' comment wasn't at all well received. 'As if..'

Autoflock.co.uk - Flocking
It's been used on rally car dashes for a while now. A lad I know is providing a flocking service.

I dropped a whole packet of greens down beside the port motor, and they haven't been seen since.

As for a lashup comment, I think it went quiet on here as it is frighteningly close to the truth.

The finish on the inside is secret, it gives a good hard wearing nonslip finish and is easily removed with acetone for any repairs or alterations.

Black, if you are waiting by the slip next week to see the first launch, you will be too late.

Eh?!! If that's your idea of a lash-up, pull a few panels off of some mass produced cruisers.

That 34 is an awesome bit of kit.

Lack of sense of humour is here - to many long days recently (not as many as Kitten though!)

It is tight in there but it's only a 7'4" beam in the boat!

Steering works now so keep a good look out everybody!

Some good news! We got the boat launched on Friday and although we had a small problem with one of the drives we were happy with the results we have. The boat sits high in the water despite two diesels in the back, it's stable and easy to manoeuvre with the Arnesons.

We did get it onto the plane before the problem but not flat out, so we still don't know the top speed or whether they are the right props for now -

Some photos taken by Tim Tapping who not only took photos but helped with some rigging of the boat and trailer on Friday - thanks Tim!
