Thanks for some of the comments.

The Underfloor boxes are positioned at specific measurements so i know where to drill any holes. The whole underfloor is drilled so in the unlikely event of holeing the hull or water getting in any other way. It can all get out...

I have mdf templates for every piece of glass that we cut, so unlike some grp workshops, any offcuts(scrap) are in the bin next to the mat cutting bench, and not over the floor next to the job. This is the only difference that i do compared to the other places that i have work at or for. And i find it keeps the place quite tidy.

The fuel tank will be in the console and will have a capacity of 85ltr.

The floor on the 5.4 would normally be 12mm.

The hull is a shallow vee, and has proved a very popular hull for sea schools, sailing clubs and support services.

I had the very first one out of the mould many years ago for my pipeline business, its bomb proof!!!. It was designed mainly as a first time dive boat but the majority of sales is safety and commercial support services, it goes like stink even with a 50 on the back........who's the hansom bastard in the photo

that looks great, i'd love to have a workshop like that.

Quick question though, how come you don't put a sump at the stern to house a bilge pump? Also, is there a reason why 90% of rib builders don't put holes in the knees at the bottom corner where they join the transom to allow water / sand / general dirt to flow to one point? It whould make cleaning and getting rid of water so much easier? Is it because it would weaken the knees, or because it would make the glassing harder to do?

Having a sump would be down to personal preference. I was going to put one in but forgot.....
I used to shape a drain into the knees on a differnet rib that i used to build, but its really not worth the time to do it.
