    I bought a 4 metre fibreglass over ply inverted vee boat a couple of years ago. Built professionally around 2000. Previously it had been modified with a gentler vee. I think somehow it hadn't been successful in its original form. Looked as though it had been sitting around for a few years.
    There was rot in the outboard bracket so have replaced with an alloy pod. I also bought a 25hp 4 stroke Yamaha to go on it. My idea was to place the prop further back to get into cleaner water. I haven't had a chance to finish setting up as I am now living and working in Hobart. My boat is at my home in New Zealand. I will try and load some photos...

    NB pod is on upside down in order to get maximum depth on prop..and can be turned over to raise motor as trial continues..but not yet .

    That is interesting indeed! I am intrigued by what the designer did in the forward tunnel. Like Dave Gerr's Interdictor.

    My first impression is that it has been shortened.

    Ah. I think you're right Mr E. The tunnel is still showing at the transon, and she looks tall for her length.
