Having seen this boat in the flesh I can highly recommend the quality and fit and finish. The performance is good as well. I don't understand why everyone is posting about cheap used boats in the US when they can buy a brand new quality product right on their doorstep and support a "local" boatbuilder who cares about what he builds and will support his product. We took the F2 box trailer and the motorhome over and back on the fast ferry for less than £200.00. If the facist state had not put a 10mph limit on I would have one like a shot.

Techteam, thanks Maybe we'll see you in 2009, if the politics don't start again!

Scand, yes it was based on a skater with a few modifications to the running surface.

Hi Phil, it aint going to get any more tempting! The euro is REALLY strong now and we can afford to pass some savings on But that is a chopped down price!

Thanks,

Alan

"this deck is then placed on the hull and the entire perimeter of the hull to deck joint is fully bonded inside the boat"

This has me puzzled a little, do you have a very thin laminator, or a very long brush? That large bulkhead in the photo must almost touch the deck!

Hi Tony,
Thanks for asking

That bulkhead doesn't actually touch the deck, there's room (about a foot) to get over and lye across the tunnel and reach up into the nose, it takes as long to do the two bows as it does to do the rest of the join! And yeah a long brush helps.

We now leave the top part of the bulkhead out until after the deck is bonded then put the top part in. There is also a panel that joins that bulkhead with the deck and is sealed tight, part of the CE requirement.

If I ever would buy a new boat it would be this one. I realy like the looks, its peformance and the rough water capability.

I read on another board that there is a guy in Denmark who did 110+ with a single engine on this hull

Thanks Glen, when your ready to change, give me a call and we can work something out. I may even consider taking a trade on the HST if your done with it. Always fancied playing with one of those!

James, I hear you. A new boat nearly always works out cheaper than a project done right! Hows the cat coming on?

Fast

Nick, with a 300X, boat should run 100+. Judging by the performance and slip numbers were getting with the demo boat.

Let me know if you have any questions at all.

Regards,

Alan

Cat's coming along well, in hindsight i'm fairly sure one of these would've ended up cheaper!
