Now into week #3 and the hull plating is being fitted. We can now clearly see the asymmetric hull shape as the 6 mm bottom plate and 5 mm side plating is tacked into place. Engine girders have been fitted and fully welded. With the twin 286 Steyr engines and Q-SPD surface drives this boat should achieve 35 knots top speed.
