Seems a shame to drill holes through that transom, its gorgeous!

What are you going to do for a console? A matching bespoke wooden job must be order of the day??

Having checked with the builder I quote from his response:

One comment I saw on ribnet I would like to answer, is that the boat hull is LIGHTER than fibreglass, [and 4x stronger] (the actual hull when I turned it over - by hand - was only about 175 to 200 kilos that is around 3.5 to 4cwt in old English and I could pick up the bow with one hand easily above my head.) The whole boat with teak decks, ss/tank and bulkheads weighed approx 650 kilos (approx 13 cwt)

The builders web site is www.cachetmarine.com, and he can be contacted through the site for anyone interested.

Ok that's impressive factually, and it should mean it will require a much smaller engine then, but, what about the weight after fit out ? lb for lb, unless its grp (which might not be so silly, since some mfrs put in a wood floor on a grp hull, and that looks good IMO) the advantage may be lost & my main concern is about the loading on the transom, because as strong as I know wood is, joining it at such a massively loaded area and making it reliable, cant be easy, with the anticipated pounding it will receive. But it sure looks nice

A boat that light will make interesting handling in anything other than flat calm - the advantage is you can build the weight in where you need it!
