    Oh wow, that looks like an AWESOME little boat for the SBBC series!

    Could you please email me the specs of this baby?

    Oh, and do you need someone to show this boat around at the SBBC's?? Hint hint nudge nudge ....

    This is what I have so far .......

    Currently 2 models - a 3m and 3.4m long. Has only made the 3m ones for starters, he has the mould for the 3.4m model but none out of production yet.

    He noticed the other boats are a little narrow, so has widened this one for extra space and comfort.
    It's 1.6m wide - I think the Tug10 is 1.3m wide .....
    Weight is UNCONFIRMED, and estimated at around 110kg (I think that is a bit much to be honest - I reckon 60kg max maybe .....), but says two guys can pick it up.
    Looks pretty high on the sides, just waiting for the spec sheet but he says it's around 500-600mm high
    The seat is foam filled, so has flotation.
    They are currently doing tests with a 15hp motor (wow!) but says you could probably put a bigger motor on there (nope, don't think that's necessary at all!).
    You can ask for an extra deck here and a modification there, whatever you like.

    I think it's really nice!

    Selling prices, boat only as is:
    3m @ R6,000
    3.4m at around R6,500

    I must say, swarley81 had his boat at Boskop with all his deckwork done - what a nice "little big" boat wow!

    I am just a bit sceptical about the transom thickness - seems a bit thin for a 25hp, otherwise WOW!
