Thanks, still got quite a bit of work but slowly getting there. At the moment there is no latch its just gravity holding it shut, another thing on the jobs list to address!

Novel shape for the seat pod! Limits the amount of storage space within (and access options) for what I perceive as no real benefit over a conventional shape pod?

I agree, it the one part of the boat I am not totally happy with. Its what the designer came up with so I will finish it off and see how it works functionally and aesthetically. It looks wrong at the moment but I think it will look better with the seats on..

The boat has been designed as a sail coach boat, so I need lots of room down the sides to put sails, booms etc. I run a sailing campaign which has a Rib Quest 7.3 although its a good rib, functionally its useless due to the lack of room down the sides for sails and the like! Plus with the Suzuki 225 on the back of it we burn about 100+ of fuel a day!

I know, they are not wired in yet, just double side tape to see where to put them, another item on the jobs list!

I want one of those stbd lights Dirk. Does it have to be green to shine around corners?
