Now that's a nice piece of work !

Do you have a final weight figure for the drivetrain and do you have a photo of the shaft log ? It must be a tight fit !

Have been motivated by the gathering but lots of head scratching . finished my deck framing moved rear cockpit back 4 inches after determining fuel tank dimensions and ski pole location as well as seat dimensions and other various bits and pieces , so many thing to think about before making a decision .
Decided not to alter the deck camber and go with a hatch scoop and a couple of clam shell vents aft.
Iam having trouble with the seat framing the plans mention dimensions but I can't seem to find them any suggestions ?

what appeared to be a simple job has been quite tricky as the stainless pipe shrinks as you weld it the first one had to be adjusted a bit but second one I can allow for the shrinkage and should make a neater job

Great job, interesting to see someone else putting a Jaguar V12 into a wooden boat, as you and I know there are not many bolt on parts available.

WoW!! That looks great.
Where did you get the center riser exhaust manifolds?
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

This is the Nelson Zimmer that I built in 2001 to 2005 that will get the V12. There are far more photos of the Jag motor build on my "H Craft" face book page if you have access to that.
