Looking great Mart Like the change of colour at the bow....is it a fender type material?

Out of interest, what's the recess for in the PHS of the console? (I haven't got one of those...)

Yes Dan, as Paul says the front area is armoured with some flat strake. Being kept on a running mooring off a quay with lots of old concrete blocks is not good for a girls nose.

The recess is for the fuel filler cap, soon to have a no-splashback-fuel-froth-de-foamer fitted behind for high speed loading of cheap petrol.

I nip across to the Isle o'Donkeys and there is a need to spend the least time there as possible.
