The cabin's in the boat and bolted down, the graphics are done. Now it's a bit more fibreglassing, windows, seating, storage, dash, electrical work and trimming. Then finalising the axle positions and brake linkage on the trailer. So, I guess, about the middle of June. Launching on the east coast but it'll be on the west soon enough.

I've fitted gArf's old tractor cab. It was in a bit of a state so it's had a coat of resin and a splash of colour so's he won't recognise it.

There is better snap but I thought Missus would like to know...

Thanks to both of you. Yep, that's SW.

Matt the CG is a concern. Originally it was going to be an open rib with most everything under the deck. It would have been a cool handling craft. Now it's a different story. The CG of the engine is just below deck level and it weighs well over half a ton (about 700kgs). The tanks are down low also so I'm going to suck it and see. If it's truly crap, there are plans.....

Not a lot to show you really. Lots of work on smaller things, making window frames, window retainers, flowcoating etc. Presently working on the dash area. A wee bit of engineering tonight. Made an adjustable mounting for the helm unit, rake and height.
