Looks good HP... The only thing I'd change is your A frame it spoils the look I'd go for a double one if I was you

Smart job done though, looks really neat. The boat feels lighter and smoother again, definitely using less fuel and top end awesome. Outran the Seawake aircraft with 225 on it. Did 53.7mph, we couldn't break 45mph even with the hull refurb on Round Anglesey. Plus we used almost 1.5L p/mile! It's back down to 1.2 ish again, less drag.
Not a very good advert for S.I.T. then.

Wasn't impressed. Just all came off. Plus we'd asked for 4 grab handles, which they just had forgotten to do when we collected it. Get the impression they're more concerned with commercial work. Fair enough.
