We are expecting to take some fire going across the Hurst Narrows so went for a more APC look.

They will be cut out to a large sizer when outfitting begins (t-minus 6 days).

When taking fire with small or large window you are still history
Large windows makes sense

Suppose you are right, aluminium and hypalon not know for their ballistics halting abilities.

.... I think we've got it all wrong

It looks very good.

Can I ask - paint or vinyl on the deckhouse?

Not much to do with me but the Wight Shipyard Co in East Cowes do some good aluminium work should it be required in the future. Not quite as nice as a jolly to Cape Town though.

From what I can tell I like the way the tubes are attached to the hull. They would appear to be set in such a way so as to ease the flow of water from the hull to the tubes i.e smooth transition. This I believe to be a common fault in many ribs my own included.

It's painted,

Definitely will consider Wight Shipyard for any work we require, hopefully not too soon.

The builders have put a lot of thought into her and I am going to be getting the full lowdown shortly.

Looking forward to having her in UK waters imminently.
