Shall take some photos tonight unless the red wine calls stronger than the garage.
Fairing or Adhesive? Have you used microballoons or microfibres with the resin?

Oh and
I have been working on the principle that 9mm deck supported by a few 9mm supports provides evenly spread support and is lighter than say 18mm play over the whole deck. I shall get photos tonight.

I have spent a long time reading and debating the whole flooding non flooding debate…. And as a result of this and the strong desire not to have water sloshing round the floor all the time I have committed to the non flooding.

I have not even got the transom in yet or even looked at tubes and you are looking for info on the power pack…..

I shall reserve this till after I have got the transom in, as it shall depend on how confident I feel on the construction of this important bit of the hull.

I am thinking of going down the Tosh 90 direct injection route. As 90hp seams to be the agreed sweat spot for these ribs. Mate has a 5.4 with a 125hp 2/ hung on the back which is in my view over the top, fun but over the top.

Looks good mate!
I see what you mean now. Once bonded all the way around that area is well enough.

Now.....

GET ON WITH IT!!!!
