I had both these boats built for me this year. The small, 5.5m (18ft) one was first, originally it was meant to go to the Solomons too, but I soon realised that it and the 8m boat I was to build next would not both fit in the same container.... and at $15,000 for a 40ft container to get up there, I was not wanting to send more than one!
Originally I had intended to go for a centre console layout, but the more I looked and thought about it, the less I liked the idea. I am a large arsed person, and me trying to shuffle my significant derrier around a damn centre console is always a pain in that ample ass, and it also severely limits the amount of comfortable seating options on the boat. By going for a side console layout, access for'ard and aft is simple, along the centreline of the boat so extremely stable, and gives a really nice comfortable traditional seating layout for the boat.
I took a lot of the features we developed on the smaller boat, like the side console layout and the square bow rails, thru to the build of the 8m boat, the Ramonalola.

The helm layout, as simple as I could get it.
The NSS9 runs the sound system thru the Sonic Hub, eliminates the need for a separate stereo to blow up, and the only other instruments are the tacho and trim guages. A VHF is under the dash too. The nav lights are either side of the console, not ideal, but it was my wish to keep ALL the electrics in that one console, I did not want wires running everywhere on the boat, not up there in the Solomons. The extreme humidity and salt would soon, I am sure, eat away at long cables running around the boat. Keep everything simple and centralised, hopefully it will last longer.

Very neat installation for the hydraulic steering and remote cables. Keeps them up off the aluminium and hopefully as dry as possible.

The most important thing to me about rigging up the sounder for the boat, a Simrad NSS9 evo2, was that the transducers should be easily and fully retractable. So often you see these boats tied up with the sterns sitting on the sand, and pretty much ever transducer you see on the boats up there sooner or later get smashed off because of this. If not from being pummelled into the sand, then being used as foot steps for guys to get onto the boat....the locals have no conception of the words fragile or delicate. And if they break it? well.... wan fela wori blong u. In english, thats your problem. So we mounted the twin transducers onto a sliding alli plate that can easily be slid up and down so HOPEFULLY the sounder, rather, the transducers, will last more than two or three months. Here's hoping! :-)

It looks like a spotted bay bass ling cod hybrid.

My new boat in the solomons, the ramonalola, at the beach at kurukuru Island. This is about 500m from Lumbaria Island, the island where JFK lived when a lieutenant operating PT109 during WW2
