A couple more thank you's to add
my works for allowing me some space to build
Avonmouth Signs for printing and applying the graffix
And the lovely Chaos who designed both the graffix and seats with no input or complaints from me. I just left him to get on with it and am extremely happy with the result. If only everyone was like me a lozzer

Very Nice !!
well rigged, love the details........ uppolstery,dash, trailer and so on
as so often from you !!


but i am honest , i dont like the bernico hull shape
they look so ugly...... like a swimming dutch wooden shoe
compared to the slick and nice looking hull shape of an 20/23/25 phantom

i know, they are fast

bernice hull and phantom deck,that would be an option
Michael

I'm slightly biased because I've just bought an F2, but you're wrong!

Stunning looking boat Burty !!
Watch out for those engine tailfins : could they touch the ground while trailering ??
How many hp do you make per engine ?
