The hull is now off the building board and rough filled and sanded with a couple of coats of sanding sealer applied and the inside coated in resin, she looks the size of a baby bath on the bench :) :)

Nice looking hull! My three cats would love that to sleep in.

You certainly move along with a build.

She is starting to take shape now George, cool your drive motors certainly look the business. Have you any idea about the rpm, I looked them up on ebay  but could not find any info.

thanks chaps . and for chipchase  the motors are 12 volt and they run light at 4,250 rpm and draw 1.2 amps with a stall current of about 10 amps so should be plenty man enough for a 4" prop :) :)
