    Thanks Lucas
    Was looking at your pics of your mast and it looked round. I will be useing a round mast with diameter of 101mm top to bottom and a 3.6wall thickness . Have you done any work on water tanks and what size ? Last question is what motor are you going to use

    Cheers

    Dude
    Always nice to see new people starting a build go for it .
    Have been a bit distracted on my build due to the fact that I bought another boat. Did not want another boat but it had nice double Axcle trailler that I need for my boat.at 6000 rands it was a bargain . Needs a little work and then some fun . Its a van der stadt buccaneer 23 ft

    Cheers
