Where did you see some passengers?
Most of the companies here in Norway doing searafting keeps
a high securityprofile, so i doubt you will see a boat where the
passengers dont have lifejackets on..

By the way i think the boat looks good an im looking forward to see
it in the fjord.

Hi Richard

Then Pete is right, they dont have lifjackets,
they have flotation suits..

I'm guessing that around a ton of verados on the transom has something to do with the angle at rest!

Yes that the picture i am looking at - and they all look like passengers ---

Is it ok there to give floatation suits and not lifejackets to your passengers?? over there - just wondering thats all ??

Would agree that its prob the weight of engines on the back that gives it that sinking angle - wonder how far the top of the transom is above the waterline? anyone know? or the weight of fuel that you would need to carry ?

Yes, it ok to use flotationsuits only, and that work fine for us.

Do not know about the transom, but the boat has a 1200l. built in gastank. The tank is a part of the structure of the boat, and not metal like most other builders use.
So if the hull is flexing, then the tank should flex as well!?
Part of the tube started to come off from the hull this week. The boat has not even been on the water for 10 days.
