    Hi Colin,

    Here's a bit late response, I just started reading this thread so don't know if the answer is already given.....

    The boat is in this Rusian thread, the pics here in post#8 are from post#477 there, you can click them there to enlarge.

    (translation link to thread / translation link to post#477)

    Hope it gives some inspiration :)

    Good luck!

    It looks like Colin already know the source :cool:

    Looking at post#12 here and post#492 in the Rusian thread I see the same spot and the same boat in a different stage . . . .

    Anyway, great info here and there, that is if the translation works well :p, otherwise we still have the pictures :D

    Thanks angel
    Never had the translation and every little info helps with the build.
    Been busy for 28 months and it has been fantastic with a lot of swearing and sweating but through it all I can see my dream coming true. Am hoping to launch her in dec 2012 so I will need to start working every night

    Cheers
    Colin

    We agree. It does resemble a coffin lid.

    The boat is beautifully done, however.

    hi all

    got a bit of rain yesterday but still hot as hell and so hot to work on boat but not complaining. Have an idea for my motor on boat am going to use a 6 kva genset with a 1.1kw motor controlled by a varaible speed drive. This will eliminate the use of a gearbox and will have forward and reverse on drive.Main concerns are will speed drive handle the sea conditions ie moisture?:confused:
