The hole you see in the stern was made by me as I had to cut approx 3 ins off the keel as I dint want to go twin Props.

The hull was taken to work to be primered and have the superstructue painted in vw orange,I used aeroosl of satin black and red primer at home in the shed

A roof was made for the mast and the boards were made for the Port and Stbd light
