Your boat looks great. What modifications have you made, and what speeds are you getting with the 18?

Thanks guys! it certainly goes pretty quick! I'm getting 30 knots out of it before things are getting out of control! 24 knots with 2 people on board, the whole thing is built out of 9mm marine ply as I had left over sheets from another project, 3 layers for the transom and knees that go all the way to the bottom of the hull, I was worried about fitting too many accessories and too big of a motor but it handles it all really well! certainly turns heads here in Australia!
