    Your boat so of course it's your choice but ... no way ! Put the slowest, noisiest motor you can find on her with the biggest prop that will fit and go tugging. That's where the fun is ! And beef up the stem plus a big rub rail, so you can bash into stuff ! Tires front and rear !

    Seriously, it's even more fun to do tug stuff than it is to look cool.

    Even better if you can do all that stuff AND look cool seriously though, if you like noise try this one https://www.facebook.com/minitugmilo...4051061980246/

    Finally I can give a bit of an update, I got the visor glassed, faired and primed and a coat of primer on the roof as well, life has been keeping me away from the boat, first it was a tonsillectomy that ended up with me having to spend 3 weeks on the mainland and now it looks like I have more surgery coming up in July, earlier on in this build I mentioned that I developed something called SCDS which is a breakdown of the semicircular canal in the ear, basically my gyroscope was broken but there is quite a list of other issues it causes also, turns out there is a professor in Melbourne that specializes in treating this syndrome but it requires a hole being drilled into my head behind my ear and this canal being blocked completely, apparently the body can compensate for a blocked canal but not one that's open to your innards.
    So the way I see it I need to get as much done in the next 2 months as humanly possible as there are no guarantees with this kind of surgery, I could be instantly better or I could be insanely dizzy for dasy or weeks after (longest recovery I have heard of is 18 months) oh and I could end up deaf and to top it off I'm bi lateral so I need both ears done
    I will now try and lighten this post with some photos

    Sorry to hear that. I'm tempted to make a pun based on your mention that you have quite a list, but probably better not.

    The whole visor experience has taken way longer than I expected, the hardest part is getting a neat fillet in the back where it meets the roof, I ended up buying a ryobi powerfile that has really helped clean the join looking good.
