Have been doing some more work to the boat as & when I can & decided to post some more pics in my album. Decided on doing some modifications that can be seen in pics Maximus 11 to 13.
I decided to put on a windscreen but am dubious of using acrylic sheet & if anyone knows of a clear or tinted plastic material that would be suitable can you contact me- thanks.
Also, I have changed the seats to a bench seat across with a back rest.
on the second frame I decided after some discussion with a work colleague, that it would be a good idea to have a shhet of ply blocking in frame #2 (I think), from the plans. I'll be taking the boat out in an estuary & if there is a possibility it takes on water there'll be a buffer between the back & the front sections so as not to let water right through.
As per plans I've acquired a 20HP merc two stroke with a control which dates to about 1970 I've been told & a fuel tank & steering all of which needs to be fitted properly to complete the project.
With working away etc. the date for the launch I think is going to be around 14th July. Hopefully I'll be-able to post some pics of the boat doing the 38mph!

any comments welcome - thanks
