Hi Mark thanks mate im glad your happy,makes the hard work worthwhile.As you say shes not the lightest but i went for a good medium of strength and quality without making it too heavy.I think i got it about right,i wouldnt want to go much if any lighter for a race boat.I weighed another well known hull the other week and it was arround 13lb mines 11.6 so i think im on the money.Look forward to seeing how she comes together and how she runs for you.

Managed to get some work done on the hull,for now im sticking with standard strut and single pickup rudder with a transom mounted pickup also.Just used what i had to be honest,full mod zenoah with a 90% stainless header and 2" band aluminium pipe.I need to space off the strut a bit more with some ali plate as its tight against the transom which i don't like.Radio box need to go lower so will cut stringers a bit as im having this box sit to the right a bit.Pipe will also go inside the hull once i cut the hole in the transom in case your wondering  ok2.Tank will be made using the ali water bottle once i get some fittings,ill make a cradle to hold it in place.Engine will get mounted when i get back from our hols and i hope to have it all done and running the week after we are back if i can but i think i have a few boats to build also so we shall see.

Heres the latest,blue with holographic flakes that really shimmer in the sunlight,gives off a green shimmer with silver in there also.Just installed rails today,still needs the seam glassing on the inside then she can get a polish and shes ready for the next customer  ;).Deck had a small blemish where some foreign object got into the clear gel along with my flakes so i dremmeled it out and ive fixed it,almost invisible now,should disappear totally once ive buffed it up.These pics are as it came out of the mould just wiped clean after trimming no polishing yet so you can imagine how much its going to shine when its buffed up  O0.
