Outboard Pod

I used some left over ply to have a go at the outboard pod. From the top of the transom to the bottom of the Pod is 20" 500mm.
Would this work ok?

Cowlings

I have added some cowlings, and a boarding platform with Hull extensions for a bit more bouyancy.

What engine(s) are you going to use ? Will you have the emergency service numbers on speed-dial on launch day ? Sorry for that quip, but it certainly looked like a product of Rough as Guts Marine, early on. But I do hope those fears are absolutely unfounded ! I look forward to the report from its debut outing.

It will be an interesting, dare I say slightly apprehensive, first water test.

200mm draft

its wet, it floats, no trickle leaks, sits great!
160kgs on the outboard bracket no worries. 260kgs on pod, no worries.
drafts really shallow. very happy.

Not a clue, but three of us manhandled it onto the trailer no worries. I can lift the bow easily by myself. With 160 kgs on the transom. Transom maybe 300mm draft.

Maybe it is, I'm sure once it's foam filled it'll be a bit heavier.

I don't know whether your engine will be low enough to be in solid water, if it is this light.

I suppose I will only know once it's bolted on. Hope my luck doesn't run out.
