New Destroyer

Just thought I would finally get around to posting a quick pic of "Bananas".
I took this on the day I collected her from Hull back in May but haven't managed to get anything else sorted yet other than setting up the trailer properly as I've been at work.
Any way, 6 weeks off work are approaching and frantic action is anticipated so watch this space!

Keep us posted, been curious how a similiar boat would be set up given an almost identical starting point but different requirements from different folk.
Be interesting to see how it turns out.

I know there are lots of more efficient modern hulls about these days but I really like the look of the Destroyers. Guess they are a bit of a classic as ribs go! (Ducks under desk)
I can't wait for the first voyage!

have to agree,love the look of the destroyers.I am planning on getting two jockey console seats aswell which should finish it off nice.
mdt-was just out on sunday on tyne and got 47.4mph one way and 47.1 the other with three of us on and lightly loaded.Think i could of got 1 or 2 more mph with a bit of fine tuning the trim

A bit stalled at the moment, going slowly because I have only materials for a little more work and have to build up more funds to finish it off.
Bit of a bummer but I still need some stuff to get her launched and then more afterwards

Just thought I'd post a pic with the engine on. Haven't really done a whole lot other than that as I've been too busy playing when ever the weather has been good enough to venture outside!
Hopefully get some shots of her in the water next time I'm home!

Looks good, at least you are using yours!
I am still trying to get the time and weather to finish mine off, started the flooring tonight and hoping for a few dry nights to get it stuck down.
Keep us posted, its interesting to see how a similiar boat is being put together by soemone else, I can see all the things I have done wrong or could have been better
