Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, grinning from ear to ear, overdosing on adrenaline and proclaiming “KINNEL!! WHAT A RIDE!!”

The angular deck looks very much like Adam's old cat moulds.

Correct - they were moulds for a cat, 'Feline 3.5', that I designed for a Cornish company some years ago. They stopped trading and I ended up with the moulds - which then sat around for years. Recently I lent them to the Isle of Wight college composites section - a great new scheme to train people up in all forms of grp / composite manufacture.

Boat was a lot of fun to drive and worked really well - but deck was a touch un-appealing! Intention was that the original company would do a mark two deck!

May even do a modified version myself next winter - longer and wider. But all depends on what projects I go ahead with - which could be a whole different thread or two!
