I have laughed at some of the other comments on this thread, you see I do what I say, I'm not just a waffler I'm a man of action It's all coming together as planned, no rush I have noticed quite a few people here are all talk and no action but I can assure you none of that relates to me, maybe if they went out on their RIBS's (if they even have one) rather than helm their desk they would get more experience more out of life and have some fun

I'm having one of these fitted to my motorhome, but the cost of the fuel has risen double in the last year, so not as cheap as it used to be, can also move it and use it in the mothership (or Searider )

Is it possible to get a sea trailer, I'm running out of space

This is what you need for all your extras.

The quote from the article is classic: “Space on board the mother ship is at a premium,” he said. “The SEA AXE has a large capacity and is capable of carrying a helicopter, tenders, toys, fuels, consumables and waste, in addition to staff and relief crew.”

I'll be working on becoming a man of action this week. Dash rewire and electronics install (HDS-7, LSS-1, Fusion stereo, Standard Horizon GX2150). I've had some of these thing in the hall closet for 2 months. Next up, microwave ...or thinking small BBQ for the swim step.

Time to be motivated by this man of action!

I would need an invertor for that, mind you I do have a 3,500 watt suitcase genertor I used to run the aircon on a boat when anchored, I could take that but my liferaft is in the last available space

We did a test run at the weekend and decided we were short of two handles, so these are being fitted to the stern haunches to give a handhold for those sitting on the tubes there. I do think that with all my kit I may be struggling to keep this thing afloat though

Lumishore Update:
Everything is being prepared for the underwater Lumishore lights, a 10mm hole is drilled in the transom at the base which lines perfectly where the centre of the light will be on the outside, this will then be glassed in side with a 9.5mm boss inserted, the cable which is 5mm in diameter will then be Sikaflexed through that with a tidy belt and braces cable gland cover sealing over the inside, the light unit seals the outside. The cable is 2mtrs long which will take it nicely along the battery cable run to the battery under the seat, the negative will go to the busbar and the positive to the new switch panel at the helm

I may have a look for a 4.7mtr to work on for next year to give me more room

Well mono colours are actually soooo last year, a bit like your decking in one of your last shots,.. no one wants it now ... in fact mono lights are more shell suit than dry suit .. what you want is the ones that change colour .. I mean you want the full 'star ship enterprise' look..... right ? how come you didnt know that ? BTW is the microwave going on an all weather gymbal infront of the helm for easy access .. I bet if you put it on defrost whilst passing a radar trap on the river you'd be invisible
no more displacement speeds for you ... so many tips .. so little time
