Diverdad, check out the album in my profile - loads of pictures there.

Ive built a wooden cradle that secures both my twinsets inside the consol. So that holds them flat and out of the way. The console is big enough to take the twinsets plus all manner of other stuff. The two front lockers are gigantic - one would easily hold three peoples kit.

Seats are pretty tough, but Ive got a bit of tarp just incase. Up front there is a lot of space as the bow is not pointed.

I will take a shot of inside the console later so you can see the tanks.

hysucat

I used to use covers after I had the seats re-trimmed but stopped using them due to the faf of fitting them. I have however gained a hole in the bow seat trim this year due to a stupidly long bolt through a twinning band!!!.

Because I use the boat for diving and pleasure I never fitted a bottle rack, I only take out 4 or 5 divers so there is enough deck space to lay down 5 twin sets if your happy to pick your way around them. Once at the dive site they all get stood up, giving deck space to move around.

Attached are some pictures, not as nice as the 8.5 sadly but the older models were a bit more utilitarian and squared.

If you fancy a go and your down in the South let me know.

Any excuse for me to take it out for a spin is good for me

Thanks Trimix, I'll be in touch. It will be next year most likely as new baby just arrived. Busy for the remainder of the year with sleepless nights and dirty nappies.

Oh joy.

There was a user many years ago by the name of Charles. He had a 6.5 and absolutely raved about it, but was much less happy when he "upgraded" to an 8m boat. He posted loads of pictures but unfortunately managed to delete them all in a fit of pique before he left the forums in a strop!
Charles the person that you stated was somehow involved with the Hysucat imports quite a few years ago I never met him and I don't know the full story at that time ( the 8 mtr was then a TRI hull and not a cat ) between then and 2008 there was a lot of sell outs, mould sales to different people law suits and all kinds of funny stuff going on which prevented the designs making their mark as they should have done.When my company in 2008 bought ALL the moulds and rights to the Hysucat and poured money into the extension of the ranges and into marketing with shows around the world ,sea works Isle of white ribfest where we had the new 8 mtr CAT and a new 6.6 plus a 6.5 on the dry , the newer 8.5 not yet at that point having been built .
I developed cancer and at that point the UK collapsed and investors held onto the moulds in SA
They are now being built and sold through XS Marine And Kamalde in Germany the build sites hold all the moulds and rights for all the models and build to FULL CE specs one in South Africa still and larger builds somewhere else I think but not as yet built in U.K ( in fact they are all for sale at the moment at lower costs that were before ) in some cases half the costs were in u.k
