Lookin at that plan, does the massive offset between the helm seat and the wheel not drive you nuts? (Just asking )

The down side is you can end up carting more kit round than you need

Is this for you to keep? Photos and man up and change your profile :-)
I'll keep it until I find something that I really want. Haven't been out in it yet but if it performs like this 600 that went round Britain with us then I'll be in no rush

I do not have rails set in to the floor!
Thanks Nick, All dry fitted now and ready to install when I get the time

It's quite impressive to fit 8 seats (excluding the bow seat) in a 5.5m. I'll let you know how she goes

You would think so, but no it doesn't as I have left hand on the wheel and right on the throttle it actually puts the two in a better more comfortable position
Having helmed back from Cherbourg last year for over 5 hours it was not a problem, just the weather

I agree with your thinking on the position of the wheel/throttle and I remember that crossing well, bloody terrible as I remember it, snapped that guys achilles tendon mid crossing in that Humber

No images will ebe released until the launch at the show!

Its a much heavier/reinforced build spec now so we would not advise you put a 150hp on a 2006 Ribeye - sorry about that.
