    It would be even better if I can get a topomap card to replace the coastal card that is in it at the moment.

    Well have managed to get a bit more done in the last week or so. I have sealed up th floorboards and purchased som marine carpet and hull liner. Have just about finished the fuel tank, just need to weld on the mounting plates and the seat mounts, put a acces hole for claning etc and it will be done. I have also fitted a marine radio and have started cutting the switch mount holes. Also fitted the exhaust and mounted the sand trap. It all takes time!!!!!

    Intriguing is one word for it Mike. I will take some more photos for you. It is the one that was on the 53 which fitted in with minimal mods. It is rather busy in there. I was going to change it but I want it allgoing for opening of fishing at the start of October.

    More progress. Putting a new loom in as the other one was to short. Have finally worked out how long the throttle and fwd/rev cables need to be so off to Arco tomorrow with measurements. Just about finished fwd/rev lever and have it test fitted. More photos of exhaust for Mike. Bilge pump outlet fitted tonight as well.

    Time is flying by and I have been pottering away at it. I won't make my first deadline (1st Oct), but it is getting closer. The fuel system is done, the fwd/rev lever is complete and the cable fitted. Accelerator pedal and cable fitted and adjusted. Wiring finished apart from wiring in the batteries, eng box complete apart from the lid. The floor panels are all covered and fitted for the last time I hope (yeah right), rear seat mounts on tank sorted and seat test fitted. So hopefully it is only 2-3 weeks away. Will do a test of the wiring this week and if it works ok, I will strip out what I have to to get it ready for painting.

    Wahooo!!!!! She lives. I couldn't resist and took her out this morning for the first test run on the Mak. She started well and there were no obvious leaks apart from one out of the unit below the bearing housing, so I guess I left a seal out, will sort that out this week. She seems to ride about right and there was no porpoising just the expected smooth ride. It was pretty busy down the ramp with probably 15+ boats being launched during the time I was there, including 3 marathon boats getting ready for next weeks world champs.

    Thanks dhs. It planes nice and slowly. It doesn't quite have the punch of Mikes demonstrator but I managed to see 40mph up and 50 down, with a cruise of 22mph up and 30 down at 2600rpm. Hope to have ready for the Rakaia gps run in a couple of weeks.

    Spent the day tidying her up a bit. Finished off and fitted the engine cover, pulled the unit apart and replaced the seal that I had left out. Made up the new nose block and bow support and fitted those. Then it was time for a quick test run down the river before the southerly blast came through. Arrived at the ramp just in time to see Mr R McCaw being towed back to the ramp in his boat. Good news was that the unit doesn't leak now and I am still impressed by the soft non porpoising ride. She is now basically ready for next weekends gps run in the rakaia. After that I hope to have time to get her painted or I could just enjoy her for the summer and do the painting next winter?

    Cheers Dawn
    I am hoping the Rakaia is boatable this weekend for the gps run, so I can put 2-3 hours on it to make sure nothing falls apart.
