You can probably tell exactly how many Guiness you'd consumed before you hung each item!

I know what you guys are on about with the offset, I've just made the new one for the MacRib, I had to look at it more than once and wondered why it was off centre, I've made it the same as original but the urge to centre it up was almost overwhelming, mind you I still haven't fitted it yet

Nothing at all; complete nonsense.

That's what I think every time I'm blasting along perfectly trimmed in a straight line without a hint, nay even a smidgeon, of pressure applied through my little finger on the helm

Any advice on useing 2K polyurethane on the transom

As I want to fill the old bolt holes ect and its gonna look like a patch work quilt.

Has any one offset their engine so they could mount a small aux on the Seariders.

Thanks John.

This is probably a silly question, but why not centre the plywood plate and just offset the engine on the plate.

How boring would that be; perfect symmetry?

Far better to let everyone think you've made a cock-up and spark a bit of debate!

The truth is, I used the original one as a template and didn't even think about it....

that's what I've been wondering about, do I centre the ply and just offset the engine, or do I offset both by the same amount my head hurts with all this thinking, it must be beer o'clock by now
