    At a rough estimate by the time its finished 70 - 80 kg. It will be interesting to see what effect it has on stability. Might have to store all the sinkers in the bilge 😂😂

    Well, 3 tubes if Fixtech 15, about a dozen large self tappers and a considerable amount of swearing and rapid movement later, we are very much past the point of no return. If this ever has to come off there will be a big effort involved. In hindsight, starting it yesterday in the shed in weather that was hot enough to send the goop off, more or less as it exited the gun was probably dumb to say the least - made for an exciting session on the driver drill though and a tooling off session that made a one armed brickie in Baghdad look positively lethargic. In the end I tooled it right back and then today in a much more relaxed fashion applied a finishing bead.

    You may have done the wrong thing securing it so well.

    Be tricky / hard for the Haines crew to get it off to copy it for their Seafarers............

    Looking good though.

    You have a good compressor in the shed to be able to pump the tyres up as you pull the the boat out of the shed I guess?
    Not much clearance it seems above the stainless and the hard top and rocket launchers are still to go on too.

    . I'm a thinker Chimo, I've still got the template......Just in case Johnny and crew come knocking or maybe even Seppo . It will be interesting next year to see what the Haines crew com up with - they may have been following closer than anticipated but I doubt it. The shed is deceptive (I hope). I had clearance of about 60mm or so to the rocket launcher prior to starting to play. If my design concept works out, I will just get in an out - half inch or so - provided I get her in the middle. Worse case I can drop it onto 13's if the brakes will fit but it's not the preferred option. The neighbours don't appreciate the compressor starting at 3am....bloody sooks.

    Let me know if you need some 13" tyres. I have a set of new Bridgestone 185 /70 R 13 s (4) I could perhaps do a deal on.
