I know it feels great to have it on the trailer. Mine has only been on trailer a couple of weeks.

Other hidden gem I somehow missed. Great work Tom. The Ski King is a beautiful design and yours looks like it's going to be another fine addition to the homebuilt wooden boat hobby. Congratulations on getting it onto the trailer.

Hi tclarkha,
I know this thread is a bit old but if your still on the forum I'd like to chat about timber options for a build.
Just moved to tassie and am keen to get building.
Regards
Liam

I’ve been quite slack on the replying front I’m afraid. I’ve finally finished the boat. “Eleanor”
I’ve had it in the water for 12 months now. Had some porpoising issues. Had to build a cav plate/trim tab arrangement. To hide that a bit I built a swim deck over the top. Quite happy with how it look. Eleanor now does 45mph. @4000rpm

Yeah, you've been hiding from us. That's a fantastic looking ride you got there. Got any on-water shots?
