Is that going to be an MDF boat.

Could be, because they make a completely waterproof MDF now, much more durable than exterior MDF but its £100 a sheet.

That's going to be rather smart, looks like a lot of work, how long do you think it will take?

Where are you building it Jase - that doesn't look to be your workshop - unless you've got a new ultra wide angle lens and are only building a 1/2 scale model!

These are all templates for the real thing . The plan is to build the hull out of cheap ply ( as you can see ) and then we have the templates and building jig for the real thing without wasting very expensive Lloyds approved marine ply . Get all the mistakes out of the way before we start if you like .

Jase will fill those with his wax crayons when he does his colouring on the boat.

We are cutting up an outboard to power it . Untill the outboard is done we cant finish the hull as the motor dictates the shape of the hull .

An old client of mine said to me if it "Flys, floats or f*cks leave it alone or rent it" gave me a laugh anyways.

I started work a while ago on a Glen Ski King which I stretched by one foot to fit the V6 Ford Essex Engine with a Velvet Drive gearbox. A house move has delayed progress for a while.
