yeah i had a few instances where it nearly took it out of my hands. I've not tried them though maybe for the next build

Well it's been a long time since the last progress update, but the boat is finally tubed. Picked it up from SIT a few weeks ago and they have done an amazing job of fitting the tubes, and exactly as per my design. Well chuffed, rigging photos to follow.

Next it was time to take a saw to the brand new console!! All gauges fitted, vhf, plotter, lowrance down scan and structure scan Inc NMEA network. Rigged up the throttles and spent far too many hours sat inside the console wiring it all up. Very pleased with the end result. All tidy and lots of storage. Just wished I'd purchased more than just black and red tinned wire.

Boat is nearly sorted, first engine test this weekend and we broke down. Seemed to be an electrical issues and turns out I'd wired up the stator wrong :/. Few bits left to sort, bilge, upholstery for the front, screen, stainless surround on the console etc. Off for a week on the south coast of Cornwall this weekend so hoping ive fixed all the gremlins!

Cheers, they're not too bad, they taper towards the front so you can still stand over them when needed. Wouldnt have minded them being more rounder but made them myself and it was a first attempt.

Longtime since I've updated this, but lots of changes over the last year tweaking things. Thought I'd get the thread updated with some changes. Decided at the BH weekend to update the deck layout. I've wanted to install some more seating for a long time but.it needed to be removable for when we're camping and need the deck space. Did some drawings and mocked this fiberglass frame up. The plan is to fully laminate the ply inside and out. The lid is folding and big enough to house 4 Jerry cans which we normally end up needing on longer trips. Recesed plates will be secured into the deck with captive blind collars to secure. For the top I was going to have a fully upholstered rear bench, funds are meant to be in saving mode atm so I've compromised with some eBay folding rear seats for now, if they look awful I'll swap them out later in the season. Progress pics to follow!
