nice deep /medium dead rise angle

new anodes on bow prop,

stern gear nice and yellow, but still to be de scaled, note new anodes going on,

clever retro fit to take exhaust down under water to acheive same effect as later boats with exhausts

turned through bends inside hull and then down out of External pods nearer mid ships,

by doing so OUTSIDE the transom it leaves far more space inside the aft end..and means that there ar far fewer

Hose/Elbow Clamp joints to potentially leak inside the boat, simple but effective.

and the "fishtail" exit point mimics the usual external pods as well.

note trim tabs about to be cleaned and have new anodes fitted.
