Here's one thought for you Martin, I would get the deck on before you bolt everything down hard. The reasoning behind this is to avoid imparting an eventual twist in the hull. The hull with a deck on resists twisting and pinching better than an open hull. It will also mean that you will see that you can get to everything once the hull is joined.
Looking forward to seeing this build on the water. I have heard interesting stories of model stepped mono hulls in the handling department, hope this one runs fast and true :)

Mart
Are you going for both days?  If so we can all meet up for the celebrations (or drowning the sorrows) on Saturday night.
Nice pub a few of us met up in last year is the Royal Oak.  It's near the centre of Bowness and is not touristy, sells real ale so should be good for a hangover on Sunday (why should I be the only one ) ::) ::) ;D

Parking right down by the lake (usually gets a bit crowded - so bring a few car colour spray cans)  ;D ;D
So you won't have far to carry your BIG boats  O0 ;D ;D

Wow Mart - that engine looks REALLY far back.  I assume the tank (bag) will be in front - keep it well filled or you'll have a 'wild salmon' on your hands ;D
I know you don't go racing so are not really interested in OMRArules, but if anyone else reads this and DOES get bitten by the bug (not that you will of course)  ;) ;),  the pipe is probably past the limit of 65mm.  It would be dead easy to rectify though, all you need is a 90 deg bent tube (could be copper, stainless, ally or whatever - it's outside so not going to get that hot) and mount the silencer across the transom. As we race clockwise, this puts the outlet facing AWAY from the noise meter, thus giving you a lower reading! Kills two birds with one stone  ;) O0
Not that I would possibly suggest ways of 'bending' rules  ;D ;D

Danny the engine isnt that far back mate maybe its a decieving pic pluss the clutch makes it look bigger and longer lol and the boat balances at 27%, it can slide for and aft a little to alter that if need be.The plug is 300 mm from the transom,the pipe is only 20 mm out the back what you see is the silencer and thats 100 mm long.I couldnt care less if it breaks  a stupid rule to be honest no offence mate,and lets face it that is a stupid rule  ;D.I dont see how the engine is far back when the boat balances nicely and yes the tank is in front  ;)Thanks for the tip on the copper bend on the transom pitty you didnt tell Glenn that b4 hes just stuck his pipe facing forwards in his miami  :D

Dont worry you guys are safe i wont be racing at windy  ;D anyway while your on about my engine been far back whos idea was it to set the balance point at 25% or was it at the end of the step  :o, the step is at 270 mm from transom, in any case i couldnt mount the engine any further forward theres no room with the hatch as it is.Bringing the hatch further forward would deff help matters for future builds access wise though.

You'll be glad you did it Andy  O0 ;D ;D

Just checked the forecast for next Sat and Sun
Temp - 52 deg (we'll save on sun cream)
Light rain - in Windermere that means the drops are less than an inch across  ;D
WIND 14mph from Southwest - in other words nearly straight up the lake.

That'll sort the men from the bouys :o :o ;D

Smashing. Just what's required. Bit more wind would be good, we shall see.

heres a few more pics of the progress,i still need to join the deck but ive tes fitted the edging strip and it should just about fit once its joined but will be a tight fit once the deck is fastened as the lip will be a tad thicker.ive also painted a yellow stripe round the boat and edged it with some lime green vinyl ,i think she looks cool  8).ive also made a bracket to hold the cable for the throttle see pic ,let me know what you think of her so far guys.
