Very nice Ian, it's looking good mate.

Regarding the water, I used clear silicone for my recent PT109 dio. Worth a thought and would work really well, particularily on this model.....Bows dug in, plenty of water flying around....Wonderful!

Good luck whatever medium you choose, but have a practice first though, eh? I did, more than once! lol

Cheers,

Ron

That looks really great Ian job well done.

Hope I am not to late but if you are using silicon sealer, you can protect the kit with some kitchen film/sandwich wrap.

Looking good Ian, l toyed with the idea of adding water to my Trawler but thought it was too complicated for my simple brain, so am looking forward to seeing how you do it. Cheers Derek
