      Good boat.
      What about weight and performances?
      The rated power seems little for a 6.7 m open ..

      G/Day Akeswins,
      According to my plans it will have a 12% deadrise at the transom, displacement (light) of 1.0t dependant on options which I will keep to an absolute minium as it is only going to be used for fishing and a displacement (loaded) 1.5T (4 persons,fuel water). Just about all of the time it will only be carrying my self and fishing gear so it will never be loaded to the max. Speed was never an issue with it I will run a 115 Hp honda 4 stroke on the back. I was more interested in a boat with the ability to run in fairly shallow water as well able to handle the sea conditions outwide if needed. Which in northern Queenland (Australia the Great Barrier Reef Area) is usually a short sharp chop.
      With the 115 hp on the back I have been led to believe it should hit around the 50 kph mark being a long thin boat I think that should be possible hopefully
      Thanks
      Gary
