Also had the seat re-covered today at the upholsterers and dropped off the mild steel flare box holders from the A Frame. They are being fabricated in Stainless next week. Overall a top day with great results.

Been a little while updating this as I have been flat out with work. Managed to get some paint on the transom this weekend and fit the elephants trunk. Hoping to get the new engine fitted soon now I have the security bolts and new control lines.

Ah, that was 2 years ago. Tubes were covered in rubber as it was a potting boat.

I am just about to have it re-tubed.

The guy that makes the hull is called John and is from Northcraft. He has been making them for a long time and I suspect is retiring soon but a great helpful chap.

It's the only one I've seen with the flat planing pad so I do suspect it is a rebadged northcraft. Is it 6.3meters by any chance?

We could go out as twins

David.
