I've re-worked the video on youtube to include a view round the back of the boat - changes are the bench seat & back rest & raising the transom to accomodate the 40hp merc! It did work out better as the teleflex as I think it's called clears the rear deck as with the original set of the 20 it needed a plate so the operating bar cleared the deck. The teleflex connection was made by welding two track rod ends together. Also, the second frame was boarded in with 12mm (1/2 inch) plywood so if she took on water it wouldn't go right through.

Despite the hard turns the back remained as dry as a bone - the only water that came in was from climbing in her on launching.

Happy boating
