Hi my name is Ben Born and I live in Sydney Australia. I have been working on and off for the past six months building the Rampage. The frames were constructed of joiners grade Douglas-fir (Oregon). I have found the plans to be accurate and easy to follow although I have raised the transom giving it 1 inch extra freeboard. The ply I am using is Fijian Cedar marine ply. I am currently having a 351 Cleveland built, using custom pistons, cam, tunnel ram and ported heads. I have opted to use a Haines and Hellyer V-Drive with 3 percent step up. When the project is completed I am hoping to use it for skiing and social racing. I aim to post more photos as the construction progresses. I am keen to hear from anyone else in Australia who has built this boat.

yours faithfully Ben Born
