Nice work, looks an ideal boat. Wish I had waters round my way to justify buying a nice boat but sadly not. The portabote does the job for me on the a couple of waters I can use a boat. Hopefully you'll christen her in style but if not it will be satisfying anyway!

Thanks Stubbo amd Matt, i have seen the portaboats on my huge waters the odd time, I was really surprised how stable they were in a wave, great boats for small secluded waters too.

Tcut and Waxed the hull this morning and fitted the seats and trolling rests, SOON I will wet her bottom lol.

Portabotes are great if used sensibly, I even use mine on the Irish Sea in west wales in the summer on calm days with the family and for fishing.As you say they are surprisingly stable. I've done a few mods to mine which make a difference.

The project is finished I think,  the last of my mods were done today Very Happy    Watertight deck lids fitted to the flotation tanks so i can stow away life jackets, extra rope, umbrellas,  and my trusty tiller extension.   Rod holders in place for a tidy deck when moving between swims,   Seats bolted in place and sorted out.   Plus my super magnetic tool holders from LIDL   Wink    now i  have to finish building the 13ft greenhouse I got the Wife for Christmas lol,  it never ends does it Wink

Soon be fishing time:shock:

lovely job andy  are they storage compartments  or live bait wells , mind you I think your live bait would go in the rear area to stabilise the boat.... but there again , don't think you can live bait where you are ...or have I got that wrong.. Very Happy
