I cut a slot in the cabin top for the lexan to fit into and glued it from the underside with canopy glue. Seems to have worked ok.

I've been following this thread with interest. I'm now pretty convinced that I have a fibreglass Huntsman hull in the garage ("Hello, hello, what have we here then?)
If that's the case, I feel a project coming on. %%

Anyone agree with my guess on the hull?

Great rebuild, and looks to be nippy on the water. What motor, prop and battery set- up have you used?

I have read this thread with great interest and I think that you have done a briiliant job on this craft. I am slowly getting my aged huntsman back into shape for the water but I am having trouble sorting out the pushpit and pullpit rails. I have absolutely not got any engineering or soldering skills. Does anybody have any contacts or suppliers that I can get in touch with ? all help gratefully received

After a bit ( well a lot really) of enjoyment playing with the Huntsman, I thought it was time to add a few extras.

I have made a mast, ventilators, a boat hook and a winch.
Also added a flagstaff at the stern, flags, Fairey emblems and a name.
