Hello again,

Here are the latest pictures from the build. We are now at the flotation test stage and the test tank has been inflated and filled with the wet stuff ! The hull has had the red/yellow bands added and the D shaped rubber bumper has been attached. The flotation tests have gone well and it will not need a great deal more ballast to float at the correct level. The trim tabs are now working well and are synchronised to the throttle control setting as well as the throttle being mixed with the rudder control to improve low speed manoeuvrability. The next phase is to build and add the exhausts footboards and handrails and start to make the superstructure look more like a Mersey.

Will keep you updated as the work progresses.
