    Very cool. That's a whole lot of timber! Thanks for taking us along.

    What was that engine/drive setup? Single engine with two hydraulic drives?

    Congratulations Skipper ... not bad for 6 minutes work. Those little Borrowers should enjoy their little 6" boat.

    That's one of the best things that I have ever seen on this site. It really gives you an appreciation of what's involved in such a project.

    Awesome. I hope that she gives you back tenfold all of the love that you put into her. Bloody marvelous!

    That is a very tidy bit of work, the video too.

    The boat has a sort of Essexy look?

    Nope - not Essex - Kings Lynn. Google found me this http://www.victorious.co.uk/victorious/index.html

    N.B. It's not Firefox friendly.

    That's gotta' be the definition of true love !

    God that's a lotta' work ! I mean, even though you know what you're doing, it must have taken every spare day, night, weekend and holiday just to finish it. I can't even imagine a project that size.

    Good for you !

    ahhh, very nice! Brought back many fond memories of rebuilding Jenny Norman. So was that a hydraulic drive system? How do you like it? I spent alot of time considering that option, but then a Sabb with a variable pitch prop became available, and I couldn't say no. The ability to put the engine anywhere you please is very appealing. You did a really great job on a very worthy boat. Cheers!

    "next patient please" ?
    The day i launched Victorious I Vowed NEVER AGAIN.

    My workshop is falling down.
    And i have virtually no funding for a year or two.
    But i am bored.

    40 to 50 ft LOD......Gaff..cutter, ketch or yawl.....With docking probe..errm sorry...I mean bow sprit....
    What you got?

    Re the hydraulics...
    Bent axis piston pump and motors... Very quiet, smooth and infinatly controllable from 1 RPM to flat out shaft speeds
    Not cheap but a 100% success.
    independant control of two props from 1 engine.
    VERY VERY pleased with it
    Boat owners rush for fenders and boathooks to fend me off when i approach crowded marinas. For some strange reason 18ft of docki.. sorry Bow Sprit seems to unsettle them.
    Local fishermen sit on a bollard and light thier pipes in anticipation of an amusing show...
    They all seem a tad dissapointed when Victorious turns gently in her own length while I sip on my coffee.. (No.. these no southern comfort in the coffee.)
    Deadwood/keelbolts would not allow shaft on the centerline.. So it was hydraulics or a "wing engine"
    All i need to do to it now is find 2 folding props!

    WOW! I'm impressed -That's one hell of a big job. I really like the hydraulic drive.

    How much of the wood is original? Ten percent, maybe? (I suppose the name George Washingon's Axe wouldn't be right for a British boat )
