We just recieved these photo's from Haydn and his EdgeTracker 426 up at 1770 Qld.
He sent in a short video as well !!
Looks great Haydn
Very funny thing happened as I was going to get the boat and return to the ramp. A bloke was there with his kids and made the comment that the kids were really enjoying the boat and then said, do you mind telling me how much you paid for it? I said that I had built it myself. His response was priceless.... He said wow, you built it? It looks like a real one....ummmm I mean it looks so shiny ummmm and then he went quiet....
As for any quirks, I haven't driven a tiller for a while and this is by far the largest hp tiller I have had. It has taken a while but I am getting used to how it handles and just how far I am willing to push it. It is not a design thing, it is a personal courage thing..... 😯
The more I drive it.. the more I love it. I went offshore the other day and I was getting close to skipping across the wave tops before I decided to slow down a little.
Just need to get some blood on it now.
Check out the stability of the EdgeTracker 426 and its 20 degree deadrise hull !!
As with all our designs, the Edgetracker 426 is engineered to "class rules" or commercial standards as a composite design.
In our case, we use ABS or the American Bureau of Shipping scantlings.
The safety standard we use is either the USCG standard or the ABYC standard for safety requirements for compliance
Here's a couple of photo's of Hadyn's build.
What a top job mate !!!
