Looks great. I like the wooden windshield brackets, they are a nice alternative to cast metal.

Boat looks great. I think it’s so cool how we’re building these boats all over the world.

G/Day well starting to look at the pointy end of finishing the boat only timber work to be done is the engine hatch and floors, ok back of the boat trim is all done just adding the epoxy primer and sanding then 2 more coats of epoxy over the deck sand the livings out of it then 10 coats of varnish, before that get out about 10kg of dust and shavings from inside the hull going to be fun but isn't that what wife's and g/kids are for, if i am in hospital you all know why ..........John

Very nice John. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. One question I have is where are your exhaust ports going to be located? I have thought about adding a swim platform to my Gentry, but the exhaust comes out exactly where the swim platform would be.

I made the mistake of asking where the second exhaust port was until John politely pointed out he has a straight six not an eight !! So used to seeing V8's in these boats with two exhausts. John has one outlet on the port side.

cheers Shaun
