Hi Chromedome,
Not yet, I'd thought I'd get a few opinions from anyone who has built one first to see what if any pitfalls there are with the hull and fittings. If he is at weymouth I might get a chance to ahve a look at one close up.

I have just found a good item on Knightswood MBC web site on the Watson 47ft, now all my questions have been answered.
