    Congratulations, and thank you for posting the photo gallery. I enjoyed going through it, even though I'm not a metalworker.

    well done mate-looks good! Your fabrication skills look to be spot on!

    something odd I noticed though-the foredeck has that coaming around it that directs every bit of water that lands on it down the side of the cabin and straight into the cockpit, theres no where else for it to go?

    Thanks, its nice to know you like it!

    @ Robbo
    Your observation is correct, but no worries ;-).. as a fisher I'm not afraid of water and the cockpit deck is self-bailing (approx. 5 inch above the waterline)

    I don't actually like motorboats, but it is nice.

    Great job - thanks very much for posting this thread too! The photos and the video are great. And it feels great to see your project come to fruition with such a nice result. (I wish we had more build threads on the forum as it's wonderful to see someone's project come to life.)
