    Unik, as always it's looks great, congratulations.

    Are you making a video log of the build for youTube? That would be the best way to achieve following, give viewers the confidence they can build their own and sells designs. Do you offer precut kits?

    I plan to make a video instruction on assembling the yachts of the Lion series in the near future.
    The Lion 550 parts kit is available to order.

    Excuse my lack of knowledge, but if you build a yacht from a purchased design what are the CE requirements and what happens when you sell it?

    Unik will reply himself I know, but he will have no trouble providing all the technical details, right down to hull FE analysis.

    Thats one of the benefits of dealing with a qualified and experienced designers.

    All boats that I design comply with the directive 94/25 EU rules, so I think that there will be no problems.

    The construction of the boat continues, a month has passed since the beginning of the work, work is carried out on weekends. By this time almost all the details of the building integrated into the power set have been collected. Everything is prepared for installation of the outer skin.

    In Britain, the construction of the Lion 550 yacht continues, all the hull designs are assembled, the stem is installed.
    Sheets of outer skin are installed on the body, the edges of the sheets are fixed with temporary screws and plastic screeds, the joints of the sheets are sealed with putty.

    Construction began in May last year, with interruptions in free time, I hope the construction will be completed this summer.
