The console looks far too back in the picture. You are going to add 2*210 kgs of engine at the back- won't the trim be a problem?

Presumably it'll be fine with 10 passengers up front and a life raft and coded spec anchors and chain.

Have you considered any ballast tanks for then your running without passengers when it probably will be very light in the bow?

Thank you for the comments,

Eupa/Simmons

I am sure, having made one or two of these, that the guys at Ribcraft have it covered but I will ask the question.

Many thanks

More pix of the new build

Some more pictures arrives this evening.

They have mounted the two engines and most of the electronics.
The dials and electronics have been "dry" fitted so far.
They will get lined up and bounded in over the next few days.

Have to say, even though I may be a tad bias , it is looking very smart.

Please keep the comments comming
