Looks like plenty of raw water from that pump.

Hi mate. Yeah not long till HB primer goes on then I can block it back for her finally fairing before primer and colour. Mind you I still need to do the Port side before that happens in its entirety.

Thanks for posting mate, it's nice to hear from you ;-)

Nothing's ever too late but I won't be keel cooling mate. All the parts are here and working so I'll stick to the set up I've made.

Thanks for the suggestion tho mate :-)

Carry on.
Dave.

Thanks for you message and words of support mate. To be honest there was no real design more so it just happened to end up looking like this lol. I wash I could take the credit for said design but it's a combination of a number of vessels that I admire and wanted. Thanks again Dave. Nice to hear from you again mate.

Yeah mate she's a beaut. 200ltrs per minute at 1500rpm. I made an adapting plate (well the plate was already on the engine, I just bored and keyed it) so the pump fits straight to the crank and not via a pulley and belt. Will be a pita when I go to change the belts but I can live with that

Tool,
If the lighting was on the hull he could use it for his avatar. I think Matt said his present avatar was temporary.

H: are you still considering filling the cutouts on each side with glass/lexan/something for engine room lighting? In your above pics it looks like nothing there yet. Looking good amigo.

Hey Mike!
Mate to be honest the jury is still out on whether or not I'll use them for air intake as originally planned or as Windows.

I'll cut out the Port side to mirror the Starboard side but will wait until I'm a bit closer to finishing before I make my decision. The plan is to get a crane to come in and weigh her then a NA can get an idea of where the water will sit and go from there. At this stage it's just a guess. Maybe it'll work out and if it does I'll leave them as vents, if it doesn't then I'll turn them into fixed windows ;-)

My vote is for engine room lighting, natural light is a good thing, no cost. I wish my boat had it. Keep pushing mate and get her in the water.

I saw a picture of just the old boat ribs the other day Matt and was blown completely away by the progress you've made.
