Good photos with lots of detail. :)
A bit of labelling and they would be even better. 8)

Thanks for posting, as a picture paints a thousand words.... ;D

Good stuff Steve....Ill be downloading them for reference!

Thats an idea though.....different deckhouses...same hull?
Im toying with the idea of selling the 'Flying Duck' to fund another hull for single screw towing, any chance of a 'side-on' pic of a Portgarth hull Steve?

 :)hi Steve i use 12v 540 motors and for the winch i use a 2v 4amp gel cell. personally i would only use a speed controller for bow thruster and micro switches for the winch. oh and yes it is about time you BB peeps got into the 21st century you will really give us all a run for our money then he-he ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
