    That was my thoughts too.

    Hull pulled together and tacked.
    Used the other cnc option I bloody should have used from the start and it was perfect. 14degree dedrise at transom varying to 25deg 1800 forad so she's pretty flat but it's built for estuaries.

    Not actually doing f all but putting some brain hours into it today.

    The edge of the tread plate is a 40mm fold that combined with the keelson that it will be plugwelded to will hopefully provide more than enough longitutdinal hull stiffness,another sealed chamber of reserve boyancy,something to lock your feet into when pulling in a net/long line/ 20pound plus snapper.







    I am not sure I like the line of the floor relative to how I think it will sit at rest and on the plane and may taper the press forad so the floor in the bow ends up a little lower and narrower.
    It certainly does not need more reserve boyancy.

    That is amazing to me VC.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Not a boat man myself but looking good, no space for fuel bladders under the floor? Seen this done on a couple of boats I've been in

    Heaps, could probably put 300l under the floor but the 8hp might take a year or two to use a tank .

    I did think about a inbuilt tank but the more I thought of it the more impractical it seemed in a dingy.....I hope two real men should be able to carry this down a beach if no trailer access is available. At the moment I can still lift the bow or stern quite comfortably,I wouldnt want to carry it very far but I am quite lazy.

    In built tanks with today's gas are just a pain with rotten fuel. Took mine out and went to totes. Is it time to start the name game??
