So have I-I've almost finished my 6th,but they've all been sailing boats and canoes-this ABP thing is new and potentially a huge pain in the arse for amateur builders (thanks NSW Government Big Brother- follow the bloody U.S. bureaucrats mindlessly)hence my inquiry-any information would be greatly appreciated.

Very sweet indeed :thumbup:

Nice lines.

Any thoughts on the power-plant as yet??



I think he scored a 60 for it through work

but wants a 90

Looking good

Will I be seeing it on the water down in the basin after xmas?

very nice, but is the thickness of the timber enough to withstand the force of it accidentally crashing into rocks (God forbid)??

It looks like very thin particle board with a nice pine veneer...


Looks like half inch ply to me. From what I understand that will be more than adequate
