What do you think, madeye, will it stand up to the rigours of use ? On a cursory examination, I'd say not, but I want to be wrong about that !

Removable Cabin

I have been working on the addition of a removable cabin. this will wrap around the centre console, and sit inside the forward portion of the boat. Also steel arrived today for the trailer which we will be constructing this weekend.

Trailer

So we got started with the trailer, and made quicker progress than anticipated.

It's bigger than I thought it was, and looks surprisingly good shape wise.

The motor mount will be be under a much bigger load than just 160 kgs of static weight. When going fast in rough water, coming off a wave and slamming into the water, things like that, the dynamic loads will be multiples of 160 kgs. I have no idea how many multiples, but 10x sounds good to me, and I would bet it's more.

The anchor stuck in the bow will also have the same weight concerns on a smaller scale, but could still cause some damage with one hard landing if the structure isn't strong enough.

Another concern with the anchor would be that it doesn't shake loose and fall overboard while running.

Keep posting, it looks fun!

Thanks Samsam. I cannot even to begin to guess how much stress the outboard bracket and transom might be under whilst in a steep chop? When I get to Glassing the Transom inside and fibreglassing the support struts, II'll post some clear close ups for comment. It is fun, I am really enjoying the experience. The trailer is now welded with a breakneck and a dummy axle and is under the boat, so looks pretty cool. Lucky to have two mates with machining experience who I supervised to do the job!

Trailers getting close to complete. Couple more rollers to put on. One mudguard and then galvanising.

Kevlar Keel Strips.

Started laminating on some Kevlar Keel Guard's. Can't believe how strong Kevlar is, blunted my scissors and a few surgical blades!
