Hi Dave, thanks again for your help. I've been really sick the last few weeks and now trying to make up for it at work so not much progress but hoping to get stuck back into it next week. Its killing me seeing it out in the back shed at work and not being able to work on it!!

That's a really nice job on fitting it to the transom.

I took to it with the grinder before I had enough time to overthink and confuse myself!! Notching/cutting the transom was bit tricky but pretty happy with how it is sitting. I am a little concerned about weight as the ski hull section is surprisingly heavy but should have plenty of power to make up for it. I'm going to epoxy in some wedges along the stringers and then run the planking over the top onto the flat area on the ski hull then glass the inside as well once it's flipped. Your right Jimmy! I'm a bit nervous chopping into the hull after so much work but I think it will turn out ok, and something a bit different
But still it is necessary to know well to cut the thing, otherwise, you will not be able to use the hull because it will be screwed.
