Does either of you recognise this particular 5.4SR hull?

Hint:- It looked a bit different last time you saw it.

Good grief, is that the one we launched off the top of an ISO container because the crane wouldn't reach it and there was no other way of getting it down tough little boats those Avons.

Interesting to see side by side seating in a 5.4m hull, wouldn't have thought there was enough room but clearly there is.

Looks very smart

Pete

Hi

Yes its that hull.

I think Steve has done a cracking job.

He has now re-registered as a Ribnet member so will probably be along later.
He will also be at the BBQ Monday evening if you want to say hello.

Well just to add to the evidence here are some of the other pics I took during the last 2 years.

Sadly when I started giving it the thorough examonation it needed rather more work than I expected.
So I stripped it back to bare hull and had a little think.

Then I saw the black rib on the right and realised what I wanted to do.


It's not quite there yet but it's been on the water and is getting there

Just superb, lots of work but it deffinately worth it and shows you don't have to spend 25k to get out on the water.

Not seen a SR5.4 with side-by-side seating. As Pete7 says, I didn't think it could work.

Is there enough space between the jockeys for comfort? The seats themselves don't look especially narrow.

Also, what happened to the elephant trunk deck drains?

Thanks for all the kind comments, as a first timer it's a bit scary unveiling the efforts of your labours.

The layout did take a bit of thought, I took 4 out in it 2 weeks ago on it's maiden trip. Just a short one to see if everything worked ok.
I'm around 6ft and 14stone, the rest were all over 5ft 8. No complaints at all, but they've got nothing to compare it with. I did have a go in all the seats and it seemed fine to me.
There'll also be a suicide seat on the front of the console when I can find the right hinges.

Real test will be when it gets out into a real sea and see how it fits then. As I told Pete when I got it, it's really intended as a fun / learning boat for my two teenagers. They'll just have to be grateful for having a boat of their own.

What it really needs now is a better engine - the 70 VRO will be thirsty to say the least.

Oh and as for the elephant trunks - there were none fitted. Thetransom has been re-inforced with 6mm plate, inside and out before I got it so I guess they were blocked up.

My fir them but will wait for proper sea trial to see if I need them.

Be great to see another SR close up to see the original fit out.

Sorry - should have said - looks like a great job!

To help anyone else thinking of the side-by-side plan, what make of jockey seats did you use?
