Have been asked but the bow is so fine I don't think we will have the buoyancy forward to carry the weight but you never know.

Thanks, around 1200kg spec dependant. The only wood in the build is the transom, rest is HD foam core.

Jim .. Very nice indeed..a refreshing new build and design. really like the raised grabrail moulding or whatever so the front passenger can easily hold on without having to stretch forward.also it looks commercial but leisure design thrown in, raked windscreen, side support on suicide seat etc etc..any plans for 5-6 mtr version?
