    Nice looking mould/glass work. Have you weighed the boat and determined the LCG?

    will be getting the boat weighed once all grp work is complete.

    there is a weigh bridge not too far from me so will get a trailer and load boat and then get boat and trailer weighed and then unload boat and go back and weigh the trailer.

    outboard pod is now out of the mould minus the top.

    top will be made and fitted once the pod is bonded and bolted in place.

    pod still needs a little more trimming around the top edge which i'll do just before it gets fitted.

    I am interested to see how you are attaching the pod, I can understand bolting it on but can't see how you will bond it as well, unless you are going to use some sought of adhesive between the pod and transom. Also you probably already thought this but have you bonded in some large pads where the said bolts are going through or has the pod been reinforced/cored along that end.

    pod will be bonded on with crestomer bonding paste which is designed for this sort of job.

    along with m10 or m12 bolts and plates to spread the load.

    both surfaces to be bonded together will be sanded so the paste gets a good chemical bond.

    once the paste has cured you could take the bolts out and it would still be strong enough to hold the engines on without falling off but i'll be keeping the bolts in.

    not been on the forum for a while due to being extra busy with other grp jobs for people.

    not touched the boat for a good few weeks now.

    i had this dropped off over the weekend ready for fitting.

    I know the feeling, stuck in crazy season with a similar project going on in the background..
    Looks great, always toyed with the idea of building similar. love the wheelhouse style.
    Assuming youre planning production??

    finally managed to do a bit on the boat.

    pod is now bonded and bolted on.

    i have started to make the top for the pod today.

    hopefully will have the top piece finished and fitted some time this week.

    the plan was to put the boat in to production if it performs as well as i hope it will.

    my main problem is funding it as i need around £20k to finish the boat which i don't have so will have to plod along as i have been for now.

    must do the lottery :rolleyes:
